You may or may not know about this guy, but he has become a huge story here in Indiana for the past 3 years.


Indianapolis police officer David Bisard was found guilty today of all nine felony charges he faced in a 2010 vehicle accident that killed one motorcyclist and severely injured two others.

The 12-year Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department veteran faces years in prison after being convicted of drunken driving, reckless homicide and other charges.

He crashed his squad car into a group of motorcyclists on Indianapolis’ Northeastside rushing to assist other officers on a non-emergency call.

This story is bad in itself but what made it very interesting is the fact that the investigating officers mishandled and possibly tampered with evidence.



In discussing the evidence this morning, Deputy Prosecutor Denise Robinson said that DNA analysis from both blood samples proves they are from David Bisard. The defense claims the evidence was mishandled, possibly tampered with, and questions the results.




Another startling revelation came from Robinson, who said IMPD investigators secretly recorded two conversations with her. Defense attorneys want to use the recordings as their evidence.

"I believe there was an obstruction of justice. It stunk from the beginning. It still stinks today," Wells said.


It is good to see that justice was finally served in this case, though I believe the police involved in the investigation should also be held accountable. This is very deep in corrupt procedures the police used to help out their colleague.

A prime exaple of the "blue line" at work. I understand the need for covering each other's back in a crisis situation, and team cohesiveness (espirit du Corp), but when it comes to the laws, it is beyond the blue line.....way beyond, and they should be held as accountable as those they have sworn to protect....IMO.

Good on ya judge.

Blue Line at work??


Huh? You may want to reread the article.


The defense team, who represents the officer, is stating the evidence was tampered with, insinuating the investigating officers tampered with evidence that resulted in false charges for his client..

I think, as I read the reply, the poster was stating what usually happens but is commending the actions taken thereof; especially in light of his peers tampering with evidence (that whole "blue line" thing)...

Let me clarify my previous post. The "blue line" mentality was responsible for the evidence tampering by his fellow officers in an attempt to cover his backside. However, the judicial system, in this particular case, erased that blue line to come to the proper decision (therefore, good on ya judge).

ETA: You see, the tampering, would create doubt in the evidence, therefore, benefiting the officer and potentially ruining the prosecutions argument that he was responsible.
