Police Identify and Arrest the Wrong Man

Three New York cops falsely identified Shane Rhooms as the man who shot at them. Mr. Rhooms was arrested and spent a few weeks in jail until, fortuitously, footage of him entering a raggae concert was unearthed. In spite of the video footage and Mr. Rhooms' eventual acquittal, the three officers insist he's the man. Okay, it's bad enough that you're identifying the wrong guy, but to then stand by your accusation in the face of video evidence means you're too stupid to be a cop. It also turns out that one of the officers has cost NY City over half a million dollars because lawsuits against him. Sounds like it's time to put this guy out to pasture.
