Today Puerto Rico police superintendent Emilio Díaz Colón angrily told reporters at a press conference that there was no investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice of violations of civil rights on the island territory. This despite the fact that there has been one going on for several years, and it has still not been completed. If there was ever an angry denial, this was it.
Tonight Díaz Colón admitted that he had misspoken, and meant only that the report had not been completed and forwarded to his office. “Maybe some people misunderstood me,” he insisted.
