Analysis of Lawsuit against Minneapolis Police

| 1 Comment

In the Pioneer Press's article, "6 sue over roles in suspended law enforcement drug training program," the author did not demonstrate how to accurately report information.

In the article the author stated that the plaintiff was asking for $2 million in damages from the Minneapolis Police Department. According to both Minnesota Public Radio and Star Tribune and the articles they wrote about this incident, the amount of damages that the plaintiff is demanding is incorrect. The actual amount that the plaintiff is requesting $1 million in damages.

When this occurs it is hard to rely on the publication for accurate information in the rest of the story. Though no other information seemed to be incorrect when cross referenced with the articles written by Minnesota Public Radio and Star Tribune, it is a must that reporter should double check the facts that they received.
