The words by City Atty. Scott Howard on the false incarceration case ("Glendale to pay $1.7M in settlement," Jan. 18) left me dumbstruck.
"The matter is now concluded and everyone hopes we can move on," he said. What? No lessons learned? The city staff has just had a $1.7-million lesson handed to them by two courts, and the response is that we simply "move on?"
The probable cause of the arrest was reportedly based in large part on eyewitness testimony, which is notoriously prone to error.
