PHILADELPHIA – The City of Philadelphia has reached a record-breaking settlement with protesters who were hit with tear gas and pepper spray during protests against police brutality in the summer of 2020.

Philadelphia law firm Mincey Fitzpatrick Ross, LLC announced the settlement in the federal lawsuit filed on behalf of 237 people injured in protests against the murder of George Floyd held in Philadelphia on May 31 and June 1, 2020. The suit, which named Mayor Jim Kenney, Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, former Philadelphia police officer Richard Nicoletti, and the City of Philadelphia, was negotiated with three other lawsuits filed by attorneys in federal court.

During a press conference held on Monday morning, several case plaintiffs said they have an array of physical ailments caused by the police violence they experienced, including nerve damage from zip ties, scars from rubber bullets and reactions to chemical agents.

The city of Philadelphia has agreed to pay the 237 Black Lives Matter protesters a whopping $9.25 million in all.

In addition to the massive settlement, the City has agreed to spend between $500,000 – $600,000 on counseling services for people who live within a radius of the 52nd Street corridor in West Philadelphia and the plaintiffs, Fox 29 reported.

In another part of the deal, the City of Philadelphia will also stop participating in a program with provided them with military equipment from the federal government.

The report explains that three plaintiffs in the lawsuit complained they were sprayed in the face with tear gas.

This comes after New York City recently reached a $6 million settlement with protesters involved in a June 4, 2020 riot. The NYC deal will shell out $21,500 to each of the more than 300 people involved in that incident.

NEWS ALERT: NYC agrees to shocking settlement to protesters ‘kettled’ by cops during 2020 George Floyd demonstration


  1. What about the businesses that were destroyed and or looted by these so called “peaceful protesters”. Innocent people lost their livelihood and police lost their cars. Is BLM going to pay for those loses?

  2. So now in this country if you burn, loot, hurt people and damage property you get paid to be scum bags. Now that they get subsidized fir being human trash don’t expect them to ever stop! No wonder other countries laugh and walk all over America. For the first time in my life I’m ashamed of what it’s became!

  3. Maybe if they stay the hell home and wasn’t in Philadelphia tearing down statues looting stores and throwing rocks and bottles at police, they wouldn’t have these ailments

  4. Hey maybe Trump protesters can sue NYC over being pepper sprayed. I mean hey you can burn down buildings, rob stores attack police, set fire to police cars, try to burn down federal buildings with officers in it and get payed for the destruction. Instead of Trump supporters claim to be a antifa && blm. This is a pile of 🐷💩.

  5. This is insane. So can all the protesters on jan 6th that were injured/killed now sue the Capitol police, the district, the 435 members of congress, mayor Bowser for billions?

  6. Well that certainly will ward off future crap from protestors. Be prepared to have police do nothing in the future and watch your businesses and cities burn down!

  7. Im Australian, live in the most closed down state, under draconian laws. But the American laws are just so corrupted. How the fuck do these moronic dipshits get a payment from the state government for rioting and causing major damage?
    I can’t fathom any of this

  8. So if you loot, burn, and destroy property and hurt people, you get a huge settlement, but if you protest in DC because of a rigged election, you are in prison and solitary confinement for years.

  9. Total bullshit! Getting paid for burning, looting and murdering people. These people deserve something more aggressive than tear gas and pepper spray! And this crap would have ended!
