Philadelphia has agreed to pay $2 million to a woman after officers smashed the windows of her vehicle, ripped her from the car and assaulted herin front of her toddler last fall, lawyers announced Tuesday.

However, the attorney for Rickia Young, 29, said they are still calling for criminal charges against the officers, some of whom were later fired, andhave sued the national Fraternal Order of Police over a since-deleted social media post showing Young's son that attorney Riley Ross called "propaganda."

"I will never forget what those officers did to us that night," Young said at a press conference Tuesday. "I hope that the officers responsible will never have the chance to do something like this to another person ever again."
