$1M Settlement for Ex-Officer Breaking Into Home While on Vacation
Does anyone remember Michael J. Reynolds, the former officer with the New York Police Department who flew to Nashville, Tenn., to attend a 3-day bachelor party in 2018 and ended up breaking into the home of Black woman Conese Halliburton and her four sons, who lived next to the Airbnb he was staying in? You might remember that Reynolds hurled racial slurs at the family, cursed at them and even threatened them with violence. You might also remember that he was sentenced to 15 days in jail behind the offense but somehow wasn’t removed from the force.
Well now, more than 2 years after the incident, a federal district court judge has ruled that the Klan-ish ex-cop must pay out $1 million to the Black family he terrorized.
