DNC cops off the hook

At least so far as an independent Denver police monitor is concerned:
Monitor Richard Rosenthal said today there is no evidence to support a complaint alleging officers lied about whether they gave an order to disperse before arresting more than 100 people.

The American Civil Liberties Union complaint also contended a police officer pretending to be a protester created a tense atmosphere when he confronted another officer. Rosenthal said the undercover officer acted appropriately.

The ACLU did not immediately return a call.
We're still waiting for those lawsuits against the city, too.

Update: The Rocky has more, including a couple of comments (w/links to lefty sites) claiming that Rosenthal, in his previous monitor work in Portland, was a pig tool.

Update II: Remember "Cow tools"?
