Well that is refreshing to know they seized the records. My next question would be why. To further cover the evidence, or to hold the officers
Considering that there is a Grand Jury in session over these incidents, it appears that the FBI believes that the internal probe conducted by the NOPD
attempted to cover up wrong-doing in these three separate events that occurred during the same week in New Orleans. I know it's hard to believe
sometimes that the big bad Alphabet Soup Agency is looking out for the little guy, but considering how far up the chain this goes, it's going to make
them look good busting a Police Commissioner and Internal Affairs Detectives for multiple indictments.
The FBI has been hitting Police and Political Corruption hard this year. They've focused the majority of their resources on Corruption cases.
Corruption indictments made by the FBI have gone up 40% a year consistently since 2005. Among the thousands of indictments, they have brought
indictments against 2 U.S. Congressmen for Accepting Bribes, and numerous City Mayors and Police Chiefs.
Not only does this make the FBI look good both to their bosses and the American people (who pays their Payroll), but it seems that they haven't lost
sight of the fact that the biggest criminals are those in Public Service who are abusing their positions to the tune of tens of millions of dollars,
more so than the average Joe who robs a local Bank Branch for $5000.
