Officer Says He Wasn't Given Information to Link Glover Shooting & Burning
Yesterday Lt. Robert Italiano, who is charged with writing a false police report and lying to federal investigators, testified that he wasn't given the information to link Henry Glover's shooting by a police officer to the reports of a dead body who arrived at makeshift NOPD headquarters at Habans Elementary School shortly afterward.
"From the get go, my conclusion, I know (now) that was wrong. Some of that belongs to me," Italiano said on the stand. "But through the course of this trial, I've learned that several people withheld information from me that would have made a difference in what my actions would have been."
Italiano also said that he didn't remember many of the conversations government witnesses testified they had with him or that he remembered those conversations differently.
