This time the innocent person arrested by Denver police (whose life was seriously screwed up as a result) didn't even have the same name as the suspect, just the same name as one of the suspect's aliases.
Denver police, district attorney, public defender, internal affairs and court authorities, have failed to explain numerous irregularities in the case including a failure to note obvious indicators of a mistaken identity like differing physical appearance and marks, failure to provide defense counsel and failure to bring the arrested individual promptly before a judge. This is beginning to fit a pattern of multiple case of this type.
Mayor Hickenlooper, Mitch Morrisey, and the public defender's office all owe the people of Denver some answers and some solutions. The victims in these cases are owed apologies and compensation. The ACLU, once again, deserves credit for making an effort to bring attention to the problem and for trying to solve it.
This kind of pattern of mistakes is inexcusable.
