The Hit Parade Revisited

In an age of shrinking budgets, the city of Minneapolis is spending more money than ever to settle lawsuits against the MPD

Gerlicher is a veteran who joined the force in April 1989. His record shows three separate squad accidents, a letter of reprimand questioning whether an arrest he made inside a suspect's apartment was legal, and a two-day suspension for a sustained complaint of "excessive force." He was recently promoted to inspector and is the commander of the city's Third Precinct.

Another officer in the Greenberg case, Kris Arneson, also has a lengthy employment history with the MPD, going back to January 1986. Her personnel file shows many commendations, along with a letter of reprimand for "inappropriate language." She was recently put in charge of the city's Fifth Precinct. Officer Andrew Stender has been involved in at least one other major payout the city had to make (see Long Crow, *above) but nevertheless has a clean record.

None of them, or any other officers, were disciplined in the Greenberg matter, even though he was arrested but never charged with any crime. The city eventually settled out of court in 2003, paying him $75,000.
