The Spotlight: 3 officers cleared in Manuel Ellis' death each receive $500K to leave Tacoma police
The Tacoma Police officers exonerated by a jury in the death of Manny Ellis are voluntarily resigning from the department. All three officers will receive a $500,000 payout. "Labeling these officers as criminals and calling for their firing and prosecution was a reckless, political witch hunt," said Tacoma Police Union IUPA Local 6 in a statement. The Spotlight has details on the settlement and reaction from the Tacoma Action Collective who supported the Ellis family.
