NFL faces lawsuit from police officer over alleged implication he criminally killed
quote:

An Indianapolis police officer filed a lawsuit against the NFL on Monday over video and tweets the league published last year claiming that a Black man he shot and killed died because of "systemic racism."
The NFL, as part of the league’s "Say Their Stories" campaign, honored Dreasjon Reed in a tweet in December. The NFL said Reed was "one of the many individuals being honored by players and coaches this season through the NFL’s helmet decal program."

quote:

Indianapolis Metro Police Department Officer De’Joure Mercer filed the lawsuit in the federal Southern District of Indiana Court. Mercer’s lawyer, Guy A. Relford, wrote in the complaint that the materials the league published imply that Mercer "committed occupational misconduct and even criminal acts during the May 6 (e)ncounter with Reed, similar to that which were inflicted upon George Floyd."
quote:

De’Joure Mercer is a hero. He tracked down a very dangerous criminal wanted by the police, who was a threat to the citizens of Indianapolis," Relford said in the statement. "He put his life on the line and was nearly killed in that effort. He was completely exonerated after an exhaustive investigation into the death of Mr. Reed. For NFL Enterprises then to suggest he was involved in police or racist misconduct is totally false, defamatory and unacceptable. What happened here has nothing to do with racism.
"While we support NFL Enterprises’ efforts to address social justice issues, Officer Mercer is taking a stand for the many, many good cops on duty across America. He is standing up for his friends and colleagues and sending a message that before you accuse a decorated police officer of misconduct in a national campaign, you had better get your facts straight."

quote:

The incident between police and Reed occurred in May 2020 – just a few weeks before Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer. According to the paper, Mercer shot and killed Reed after a vehicle chase turned into a foot chase. An investigation into the shooting revealed that Reed fired shots at Mercer during the pursuit, which an attorney from Reed’s family denied.

Boy, I wish I could get on that jury. The damages would start at $500 billion.

Can this be turned into a class action if other cops join in?

From the bottom of my heart, I hope the judgment is so high that the NFL goes the way of XFL.

I sure hope he wins big against the NFL and goes after the players. We all know how athletes crumble when something threatens their money. See Lebron James being questioned about Hong Kong.

I hope he wins and salary cap will drop by 25 mil. The Panthers owner sold his team because he knew what was coming. Now, 8 owners want to sell. No one wants to own a NFL franchise.

NFL should pay up. Defamation laws dont just cease to exist because you want to virtue signal.

re: NFL faces lawsuit from police officer over alleged implication he criminally killed
We're about to see if this officer is looking for an easy $30-50mil to stand down, or if he's making a monumental statement and looking to bankrupt the League offices.

Personally, I hope he gets just big enough a judgment that the NFL will pay it, but not so big that they tie it up in court for 20 years stalling in litigation.

In an ideal world, the NFL should be absolutely bankrupted and gone forever.
