“This isn’t representative of our department,”

Police were unable to account for 240 officers on the 1,450-member force following Katrina. The force has been investigating them to see if they left their posts during the storm.

Well, acting superintendent Warren Riley, I’ve got a calculator that says “240 divided by 1450 comes out to…16.5% of your officers” hit the road or vaporized exactly when they were most desperately needed. Creeping up on 20% of your police force pulling chocks is pretty representative in my book.

    Yeah, that’s a tough sell. It’s a black eye but it’s also the best opportunity they’ll ever have to address this problem.

  2. Oh Rob, you’re SUCH a nice guy. But you’re also absolutely right EVERYBODY’S gone, so start fresh and do it RIGHT. It’s a rare chance they have here, to make something of it.
