We can't trust until we've unearthed the corruption.
Thanks for nothing, NOLA P.D.
You've helped create a national distrust of police that affects me every day that I work.
While the five New Orleans Police Department officers convicted today weren't found guilty of murder, they were found guilty of improper actions resulting in the unwarranted deaths of citizens, and the cover-up of the shootings on the Danziger Bridge.
I live a few hours west of New Orleans, and regularly am told that I simply have to visit the place. For the culture. For the food. For the history.
Y'all can keep that stuff. I'm not voluntarily going to a place where, when you're in trouble, you don't dare call the cops, because you're afraid that they're crooks, too.
Having never been to New Orleans, I have thus never left anything there, and have no reason to go there. From what I can see, it is our nation's greatest shame. Why didn't we just quit the town, after the hurricane?
