Letter: City shouldn’t be paying family of robbery suspect

City shouldn’t be paying family of robbery suspect

Why in the world would the City of Buffalo give the family of robbery suspect Matthew Connors $600,000 to settle a wrongful death lawsuit? No charges were filed against Officer James Reese. Officers have only a split second to make that fatal decision. Connors put himself in that position. And of all people, Councilman David Rivera should know firsthand about the decisions officers have to make. He is a former police officer!
