police lawsuits question 

How come it's always the city that has to pay for the misconduct of a police officer and not the pension fund of all of the police officers?

@paulference pension funds are Super Duper Federally And State Protected. basically, for the same reason you wouldn't want their own paychecks to come out of their pension fund in a time of budget crunch... they had to put a whole bunch of protections up and now they apply to more than you might think they should.
is that right, well, that's a different question.
