Appeals Court says OPD Planted Gun


From the Chronicle:

“A federal appeals court upheld $3.7 million in damages Tuesday against the city of Oakland and two police officers who, according to a jury, planted an assault rifle on a parolee’s property.

Jurors found in November 2007 that the officers had violated the civil rights of the parolee, Torry Smith, and his then-girlfriend, Patricia Gray, by fabricating a case against Smith to justify his arrest in September 2004.”

In Oakland, it’s really not that hard to spot the real criminals… THEY’RE IN UNIFORM.
