What price should the police have to pay when unnecessary force causes a man to lapse into a coma? The family of a Seattle man who had his head slammed into a wall wants $25 million.
Testimony began last week in the Seattle police takedown trial brought by the family of Christopher Harris. Harris, 31, was running from a King County sheriff's deputy when an officer cracked his head against a wall. "It sounded like when somebody takes a baseball bat and hits a ball real hard and you hear that crack," said witness Ron Cody. Two years later, Harris is still in a coma.
