Howard is quoted in this article: Watchdog Report: Lawyer calls for probe of Worcester police credibility. The article describes civil rights lawyer Hector Pineiro’s account of widespread misconduct in the Worcester police force, including fabricating evidence and hiding evidence that could be used to prove a suspect’s innocence. In many cases, judges in criminal prosecutions questioned the police officers’ conduct. The well-researched article also discusses cases of police misconduct in Springfield, Lowell, and Boston. Howard provides insight into how police misconduct thrives with a lack of proper supervision and accountability. Too often police officers are willing to violate the constitution in order to make an arrest.
