Report: Thousands of Florida cops keep jobs, despite ‘moral violations’ [FL]
Reported on Yahoo! Nes Blogs by Liz Goodwin, The Sarasota Herald-Tribune’s two-part investigation into Florida’s police disciplinary system reveals that thousands of Florida officers have stayed on the job despite evidence implicating them in crimes or serious misconduct. And the agency responsible for keeping officers in line too often declines to investigate, the paper says.
NOTE: Sad, but hardly a shocker. In too many instances, the agencies charged with investigating police misconduct either have no pwer, or else have serious conflict of interest regarding investigating co-workers or other similar conflicts. Wait, no, actually, seeing it all in print like this IS shocking.
