Reginald Jackson, 43, recalls the night in 2001 when he was shot in the neck by a Lakeland police officer; he said he still feels a cold numbness in his arm sometimes, Gainesville’s WUFT reports. A jury awarded him $412,500 in 2009, but he received less than a quarter of that from the city. In the past, the city of Lakeland has lobbied against bills filed in the Legislature to recover the rest, but this year it is staying neutral. | LkldNow coverage
