Earlier I had written about Springdale police officer Mark Thom, his abuse of local citizens, and the city council that enabled him.
Last week Thom was sentenced to prison for a year and a day, and then to 3 years probation following release. U.S. District Judge Mark Hornak told Thom that he would never serve as a police officer again.
The former police chief Joseph Naviglia said that Thom is “a habitual liar and a very conniving and manipulative person.” Naviglia also said that the city council protected and covered up for Thom. You’ll remember that I pointed this out in my past article.
Springdale has had to pay out $225,000 in the incident leading to the criminal charges, and $98,500 in a separate case. But I guess Dave Finley doesn’t care about that either.
