So, for 'balanced journalism' are you going to detail previous disciplinary charges and allegations against the officers?
Are you referring to this 2011 incident in which allegations of misconduct were made against Sgt. Soares?
Also, the Palo Alto Daily Post reported on this federal harassment suit first, way back on November 27, 2013 in a front page story,
"Police Accused of Harassment in Federal Suit" by Jeramy Gordon.
The Post had a disturbing detail that the Almanac does NOT have.
From the Post:
" The suit claims that Soares then interrogated Amanuel's brother about a future criminal trial in which the brother had been subpoenaed to testify.
Amanuel claims Soares threatened to toss them both in jail if the brother 'did not testify differently than he had testified at the preliminary hearing in the case.'"
This kind of incident in which someone alleges that they have been threatened by police is nothing new. Inmates from San Mateo County have been complaining about this for years.
