Mrs Dodd's love and support for her husband is admirable. However, she nor he(s) responded to email that showed them the Arrest Record, and eventual posting of their address and the bail amount for the arrest of one Lloyd Dodd of Grand Terrace. Based on that information the blog posted the information and the source and YES made an Error in not knowing that there are TWO LLoyd Dodds who at least claim l eagle residence at the same location. There is a Lloyd Dodd III and a LLoyd Dodd IV.
Neither Dodd III or IV responded when they were offered the BLOG that originated the information. Neither did Mrs. Dodd inform the Blog or the CNG that there was in truth an arrest of LLoyd Dodd of Grand Terrace in Riverside for DUI. So Yes the blog made an error in which LLOYD DODD it was. HOWEVER, who is being misleading now by saying it was baseless, false, or slander.
Slander requires intentional malice. A retraction/rewrite was provided, and information where to correct the source data was provided if there was an error in the Police Reporting. It was based on Data from Police Arrest Documents, and the Truth is a LLoyd Dodd of Grand Terrace was arrested for DUI in Riverside 1/13/2011, the only error was that it was apparently not III but IV who was arrested.
It is nice to know you feel your husband is a righteous citizen, caring, and loving family man. Perhaps this is why neither you or him have not said, it wasn't III ... it was my son IV.
Yes the blog was unaware of the Dual Lloyd Dodds of Grand Terrace. Because of this the concern for the city's need to get to the facts of the arrest was raised to public awareness. That caution was prefaced with a statement "COULD" be a situation to look into.
The error was redacted from the blog, and when more information supported the report of the arrest and additional cross checking, and no reply to email from the Dodd's the situation was clarified for the readers.
Making Sure Bloggers Do Their Research First
To all the Citizens of Grand Terrace:

Grandpa Terrace Blog should research his data thoroughly before posting false information and slander up-standing citizens, specifically individuals that are focused on the well-being of Grand Terrace. The information posted is totally untrue and baseless.
My husband, Lloyd, is a righteous citizen, caring, and loving family man. Many citizens in Grand
Terrace know how extremely resourceful Lloyd is to all who seek him. My husband is admired by his Citizens On Patrol peers, making him Commander of the Unit for two consecutive years. I am so very heartbroken that this filth has been posted against this kind and generous man.
