The problem is not so much the cop -— all people make mistakes
So you really believe the cop saw May buying drugs from an unnamed, unidentified, unknown "drug dealer". And May further cheerfully waived Miranda and admitted to buying drugs?
A cop lying on an arrest report is not a "mistake", it's corruption.

I did not know the details, and that wasn't the point. A single terrible cop, whether malicious or inapt, is not so much of a problem as the system that does not correct for that. The man was in jail for nothing for three months -— as in some banana republic.
