Naperville IL settles suit

After responding to a call to settle a verbal dispute, a Naperville police officer decided to cuff a man, made racial slurs at him, and ordered the dog to bite him while cuffed.    Now the city has settled the lawsuit that resulted from this incident for $21K

Not surprising the city spokesman "Stands by their police department and their actions." Which actually sounds more racist to me... 

After being handcuffed without incident, one of four white officers ordered his police dog to bite Odom, who is black, the lawsuit states. Odom suffered "humiliation and bleeding" as a result of the dog's bite to his thigh, which left his shorts and underwear tattered, according to the suit.
