This story really ticks me off.
So the guy who got the ginned-up $300 ticket had to take two days off of work to fight the false charge while the guy who wrote the bogus ticket was suspended for just two days. That's a gross injustice.
The meter maid and the cop who wrote the fake ticket should have both been fired. Period!
If I'm a lawyer in Denver and that cop appears in court - I bring this up every time. Dear jury here we have a cop who manufactures evidence and we are supposed to believe he's telling the truth now?
