A man who claims to have been arrested and strip-searched after photographing New York City police has reached a $125,000 settlement with the New York Police Department (NYPD). As the New York Daily News reports, 45-year-old Dick George told a Brooklyn federal court that in 2012, he witnessed NYPD officers conduct a stop-and-frisk operation on three young African-Americans. George photographed the encounter on his cellphone while sitting in his car, and later advised the youths to note the officers badge numbers next time. Two officers overheard his advice and allegedly pulled him from his car, with one warning George that he was going to get what he deserves for meddling in our business, according to court papers.
