St. Louis police ignored judge's order to release a victim of misidentification, held for 60 days

St. Louis police ignored a judge's order to release a victim of misidentification and held him for another 60 days in jail, the man claims in Federal Court.
Cedric Wright says police officers stopped him on Aug. 20, 2011 on suspicion of petty larceny.

Wright says he gave the officers valid identification, but they claimed he was actually Corey Darmel Leonard, who was wanted on a felony warrant. Wright claims the officers arrested him as Leonard and injured him by violently shoving him into a patrol car.

...

Darmel Leonard and despite the fact that plaintiff was given an inmate identification bracelet identifying him as Cedric Maurice Wright, while in the custody of the Sheriff's Department, defendant Jackson Doe, deputy sheriff two, transported plaintiff to Division 26 in the Twenty Second Judicial Circuit Court in the City of St. Louis before Judge Elizabeth Bryne Hogan (hereinafter 'Judge Hogan').

"Upon information and belief, Judge Hogan and Assistant Circuit Attorney Patrick

Carmody realized plaintiff was being wrongfully detained as Corey Darmel Leonard.

"Mr. Carmody filed and Judge Hogan signed an order directing plaintiff's release because he was not Corey Darmel Leonard, i.e., the proper defendant."

It's unlikely they will, but I can hope, I guess.

12. Cops get overtime pay for

processing paperwork after arrests, and they must meet arrest quotas or their pay progress will stop. And many cops have the same contempt for jumanity as Frank Gallagher (the Showtime character who made a woman he was conning miss her heart transplant phone call and die).

Things like this keep happening everywhere, including especially NYC.
