Brickbat: Costly Employee


A federal grand jury in Brooklyn has awarded Justin McClarin $890,000 after finding he was wrongfully arrested by the New York City Police Department. McClarin said cops planted cocaine on him and forced his girlfriend to falsely claim he kidnapped her. One of the cops named in McClarin's lawsuit, David Grieco, has been named in almost 50 other lawsuits in which the city has paid out more than $1 million in settlement money.
