VIDEO: Oakland city attorney recommends $1 million settlement in police sex scandal claim | KRON4.com
OAKLAND (KRON) — The City of Oakland was recommended to pay nearly $1 million to settle a claim filed by the woman at the center of last year’s police sex scandal.

At Tuesday’s council meeting, City Attorney Barbara Parker’s office recommended settling the case for $989,000.

Jasmine Abuslin, formerly known as Celeste Guap, now 19, sued the city for $66 million in damages in September 2016. Absulin, who is the daughter of an Oakland police dispatcher, alleged that Oakland police officers exploited and victimized her in violation of her civil rights.

Criminal charges have been filed against four former and current Oakland police officers for allegedly knowing about her claims but failing to inform supervisors, having sex with her when she was underage and giving her confidential police information.

John Burris, the woman’s attorney, said he’s recommending that the woman accept Parker’s offer if it’s approved by the City Council.

Texas Police Department Scores 1,005-HP Chevy Corvette Z06 Cop Car - The Drive
Somewhere, Chuck Norris is jealous. 
On the off chance you think of police cars in Texas, you probably think of, well, trucks. Texas is more or less synonymous with passenger trucks; one in five pickups sold in the United States leave the lot in the state, according to Edmunds, and automakers tend to celebrate that fact by showering Texans with special-edition rigs. It's an image that's also helped by media portrayals of Western lawmen and their macho rigs, such as the Dodge Ram Chuck Norris drove while portraying Texas ranger Cordell Walker in the mid-to-late Nineties.
