City sued because cop didnt know spanish

An attorney for a Hispanic man who was allegedly knocked to the ground and kicked by a police officer is seeking over $1 million dollars for his client, arguing that the city’s failure to teach law enforcement officers “fundamental Spanish” is the reason excessive force was used.

This is absolutely ridiculous. This same attorney, Domingo Garcia, has also claimed that the term “illegal alien” is a racial slur.

If his client managed to learn basic english, this wouldnt have happened. Police have no duty to communicate in any other language than english. I’d like to know if this attorney advocates police officers knowing other languages too, just in case the cop ever comes across someone who doesnt speak english again. Hopefully the courts will somehow make Mr. Garcia reimburse the city for their legal expenses, so the taxpayers dont have to foot the bill for this mans incredible arrogance and stupidity.

I would urge everyone to contact the law offices of Domingo Garcia and let him know what you think of him and this frivolous lawsuit.
