    Corruption Charges Being To Surface In New Orleans Police Department
    September 28, 2005 8:00 p.m. EST

    Douglas Maher - All Headline News Staff Reporter

    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.

          And you're surprised?

          Read some of the posts form other new orleanians. Also go over to some of the hometown forums and you'll get the whole story as close as you can get to the truth.

              im not hiding anywhere. its just that i have a life.

              as for the topic at hand, i think anybody who's frequented this forum for some time know that i would never defend a cop who is in the wrong. if he chief of NOPD comes out dirty, he should be hung out to dry. however, joseph, whom works for NOPD says the chief is a stand up guy. i dont know what to believe.

                The only "news" outlet that carried this story was "All Headline News" and they've dropped it from the site. There may well be phantom cops in NOPD but this report smells strongly of BS.

                  I agree that this sounds like just one more sensationalistic story that's coming out of the Katrina-Rita situation. Remember stories of 10,000 dead, baby-rapes, murders, etc. that were widely reported in the early days? I will reserve judgment until I see a little more about this in more respected news sources.
                  Caution and worry never accomplished anything.

                    I agree 110%... I just thought Id share the info, it kind of ties in with all the negitivity we've been hearing about the dept. in the wake of the Katrina mess. However, its not the 1st time Ive heard storys of NOPD.

                      I don't really trust their mayor. Seems like a shady guy.

                        There is a lot of truth behind most of the reports. A lot of things have been covered up for the sake of political correctness.

                        The former chief is NOT a stand up guy, he's part of the problem with NOPD, or was....

                          Maybe those officers got beamed up to the Nation of Islam mother ship hovering above the earth. When I heard about the NOI going to teach the police thing came out, that pretty much summed up the chief for me, no matter how many tears were shed on TV. I want to know if the mayor met with Farrakahn recently and why the national media isn't making any effort to find out what is really going on with the city government.

                            Having just come back from that neck of the woods, all I will say is that it's a totally different world down there...and not all for the good. I won't go into details on a public board, and I wont name specific departments, but very shady things do happen around there. If it looks like a duck....

                              Can someone tell me why he still has his job?
