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.
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.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.
