Danzinger Bridge

The corruption in the New Orleans police department hasn't changed much. This editorial explains a lot. The most important paragraph is the following, something everyone with a uniform & a gun should be more than willing to do. Unfortunately, all too often, cover-ups ensue & justice is denied.
But Mr. Lehrmann showed neither compassion for these innocent victims nor the courage to stand up for them when it counted: when he and fellow officers were conspiring to make the deaths of two people and the shootings of four others appear to be justified actions on the part of police.
With Mr. Lehrmann pleading guilty now, he will probably receive less punishment than he deserves. & I would add one thing, the compassion & courage should have preceded the plans for the cover-up, before the murders & injuries occurred.
