You were probably as appalled as we were last month at the viral video of
So Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson had a strong speciman for immoral detain — but instead they’ve reached a settlement. For$ 1 each.

Partnering with a nonprofit, Philadelphia will concede money to young people in all levels of society looking to learn how to become business owners. Nelson and Robinson will serve on the meetings of the committee to apportion the award; they will receive no payment for this work.
Mayor Jim Kenney said 😛 TAGEND
“I am pleased to have resolved the potential argues against the City in this fertile form. This was an incident that rekindled a lot of hurting in our City, pain that would’ve resurfaced over and over again in protracted prosecution, which presents substantial legal jeopardies and high fiscal and emotional costs for everyone involved.”
He too revealed “its been” Nelson and Robinson’s idea; he says they approached the city with the concept “in an attempt to reach something positive see of this.”
Robinson himself told me that he and Nelson are looking to make real change , not get rich immediate 😛 TAGEND
“We pictured long and hard about it and we feel like this is the best way to see that change that we want to see. It’s not a right-now occasion that’s good for right now, but I feel like we will see the real change over time.”
Good for them!
