Baltimore Uses Aggressive Tactics in Demanding Silence from Victims of Police Misconduct Who Win Settlement Claims

In one case, the city agreed to pay Ashley Overbey $63,000 after police used a stun gun on her after she had reported a burglary at her home. But after she posted comments about her case on a newspaper website, Baltimore officials withheld $31,500 of her settlement.
