Corruption Charges Begin To Surface In New Orleans Police Department

September 28, 2005 8:00 p.m. EST

New Orleans, Louisiana (AHN) - Fox News reports an investigation is underway by the FBI as agents look into massive corruption on the state and local levels in the New Orleans Police Department.

Police Chief Eddie Compass suddenly resigned on Tuesday asking media interests to respect his right to privacy, but it appears that the former New Orleans cop has a lot of explaining to do.

"It's pretty much always been known, but never openly acknowledged, that NOPD's actual numbers were far below the "official" figure of 1500 - 1700," says the Fox News source.

The number of officers that actually are employed by the department are around 900 to 1,000. The question now remains...where was all of that salary money going to?

The FBI began investigating the New Orleans police who had abandoned their post during Katrina and of the more than 500 screened so far, 84-percent don't exist.

"I served this department for 26 years and have taken it through some of the toughest times of its history. Every man in a leadership position must know when it's time to hand over the reins," says Compass at a news conference.

The investigation is widening on Wednesday to include New Orleans Police Foundation and Elodia Blanco for hiring practices as well.

Corruption was wide-spread during the Katrina aftermath as New Orleans police officers were seen looting shopping centers and filling shopping carts with shoes, clothing, and electronics.

Mayor Ray Nagin was also questioned about allowing a large number of unnamed police officers to go to Las Vegas for rest and relaxation once the military arrived to take over the city. But a problem for the mayor rose when questioned who those officers were and how they could be contacted. Nagin did not have specific names to give.

Several middle ranking police officers committed suicide after the Katrina debacle, Nagin and Compass believe it was due to trauma and exhaustion from the storm but officials are looking into whether or not it might have been related to fear of being caught in a payroll scandal where at least forty-three-percent of the payroll is unaccounted for.

Finally something is being done about Nagin and his crew. I have a bet with a coworker that Nagin will be indicted by the fall of 2006.

LIES! LIES! LIES!

Poor ol' Nagin done lost his compass and can't get no help.
Now everybody wants to pile on and kick him when he's down.
And he was just getting N.O. all fixed up.
He said on CNN: "N.O. is now crime and drug free."
So, see he really did clean the city up!

That could be a true statement. If there are no people left in the city. No crime.
Homicide rate will be at an all time low. No people there.

Statistics are fun.

Or no arrests because the fine officers who did reamin are working to help the citizen's who are in need. Arrests take a back seat to the relief efforts.
Who knows.

I wish those who are true to their oath, only the best. Keep up the good work and make us proud.
At the end of the day, you won't have medals or praise. Only the satisfaction of a job well done.

Hey, I actually heard him say that on CNN, and to make matters worse I was eating a chicken salad sammich and almost choked! Of course there wasn't any drugs or crime in NOLA, there wasn't anyone there except NG, SWATs, etc!!! What a fucking jerk, he should be jailed.
