Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, it is completely clear that witnesses who went to police together are not independent, and that's why I highlighted the relevant passages by bolding.

As for the insufficient detail in "embroiled with the police", that's relevant to the question of how much police influenced to flow of events on its own initiative, not the independence of witnesses...
