"City Attorney Molly Stump said that as of Tuesday morning, there was no non-confidential information available for public release. "

Financial amount paid by MV or PA residents/taxpayers should not be confidential.

As a Mountain View resident I demand transparency in settlements with public money involving police violence. I'd also like to know which officer was yelling "Stop resisting" to a man being attacked by a dog. That phrase is often yelled by the most violent police officers as a cover to create a public perception that their abuse is justified. I'd like to know whether any disciplinary action has been taken against that officer and/or his or her partner who apparently stood by and allowed the vicious attack to happen.

Why are the terms of the settlement with public funds confidential?
