New Orleans' Finest?

Bar brawl. Witness intimidation. etc. etc. NOPD cops lied about bar brawl, inquiry says - NOLA.com One was fired. One was suspended. Three had no action taken.

I wish I had those kind of benefits!
The New Orleans Police Department's own internal investigation into a high-profile 2008 bar fight between off-duty officers and city transit workers found that five of its officers broke police conduct rules and then lied to investigators, with at least one officer coercing a civilian witness to lie about the incident, according to an internal report made public Thursday.
Break policy and have no repercussions? Why have the damn policy? [via KABA]
