More than a band aid

In light of their killing an innocent woman, the Atlanta PD has replaced its entire narcotics unit.:

Atlanta’s police chief has announced sweeping changes to his department, including the replacement of the entire narcotics unit.

The unit came under heavy criticism last fall after the shooting death of a 92-year-old woman during a drug raid. Officers burst into her home unannounced, with a no-knock warrant based on false information. Two of the officers involved have pleaded guilty to manslaughter and other charges, while a third is still facing prosecution.

Police Chief Richard Pennington says training standards for the narcotics unit will be rewritten to adopt federal drug agency practices. He says 14 investigators will be added this month, and he hopes to have a new staff of 30 by the end of the year.

Good. It’s a start.

    it would be a better start if the chief could point to the men being convicted of the appropriate charges.

  2. _Jon Says:

    They also need to replace the Judicial staffers who assisted them, the judges who signed off so easily, and the leadership of the Police who allowed this culture of corruption to fester.

  3. JustDoIt Says:

    The replacements need to start from the top and should includ the Police Chief himself. Accountability and all…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
