70,000 Dollar Settlement is Nice and All…. But

Watch the video of the arrest (police don’t activate the audio until around 1 minute into the video)

All charges against Ocak were eventually dismissed and thanks to the video and audio that police boasted about during the arrest, Ocak received a settlement of $70,000. Although he feels exonerated, the officers are still on the force and Ocak is worried about the next time:

“It’s also difficult to see the same four officers still patrolling my neighborhood and not knowing what could happen if one of them ever detains me and they choose to leave video off.”
