"Prison Chaplain Awarded $4M in Damages After NYPD Cop Deliberately Breaks Leg"
christianpost.com A Corrections Department chaplain who claimed an NYPD officer deliberately broke his leg during an arrest has been awarded $3.95 million damages, but the city wants to challenge the verdict. It took a Brooklyn jury less than an hour to reach a decision after hearing 51-year-old Christopher Graham's nightmarish ordeal during a brief trial earlier this month. Ultimately, jurors ruled in favor of Graham, who filed a civil claim against the city after officer Paul Aparo severely injured him in 2010. "He was turning my leg, left and right. I was screaming and banging on the floor. Then I heard a snap," Graham recalled, according to the New York Daily News. "Even after my leg breaks they were still beating my a--." Police were reportedly called to Graham's Crown Heights apartment by his girlfriend, who reported a domestic dispute, when trouble ensued. She accused the off-duty prison chaplain of assault although he still denies the charge. Upon arrival, cops allegedly made a beeline for Graham and used excessive force. "They pulled [my] hat off my head and pulled dreadlocks out of my head," Graham said of officer Aparo and his former partner, officer Michael Stumbo. "They slammed me to the floor and held me down. One of them was stepping on my neck and my face. The other one was trying to break my leg." Graham had to undergo two surgeries after his left tibia and fibula were fractured during the incident. He now suffers from post-traumatic arthritis.
