Lame sentence. Really lame. In fact, lame enough to destroy credibility.
Denver police lieutenant, Matt Murray, already admitted he lied to the media in telling them that Bradford asked for the legislative privilege. He used the word “wrong” in describing his “mistake”. How about the far greater likelihood that he was trying to manipulate public opinion against Bradford and thereby pollute the jury pool? Funny how it’s so easy to be “wrong” when you are being manipulative. The real pity is that 1) we’ll never know what Bradford’s actual blood-alcohol level was, and 2) some poor lower-level police sergeant gets to face an internal affairs investigation because of the obvious manipulativeness of her “superiors”.
While we’re at it, the Daily Sentinel didn’t exactly cover itself in glory by rushing Murray’s lie to the front page. It’s merely politics as usual all the way around. And, yes, it sucks.
