Police Corruption a Major Problem in the United States

Police corruption a major problem in the United States 
Press TV by Ashantai Hathaway  -  April 6, 2012

Washington, D.C. - Police corruption is a major problem in the United States, where some police officers turn bad to make money from drug deals, or career advancement, while many more try to cover up their own acts of brutality, murder and torture. Such is the case in the city of New Orleans, just this week five former police officers were sentenced to prison for the shooting of six unarmed civilians, two of whom died, in the days after Hurricane Katrina back in 2005, about 20 officers staged a cover up. An attorney for the civil rights division of the Justice Department called it the most significant police misconduct since Rodney King, a black man, was beat by the Los Angeles police in the early 1990's. And the corruption spreads across the nation happening in big and small cities from police officers of all races. Many critics say there needs to be more transparency in law enforcement , while no police departments would comment on this story, U.S. police officers go by the motto "to serve and to protect", but where corruption exists, the widespread existence of a "Blue Code of Silence" among the police can prevent the corruption from coming to light." The FBI's Civil Rights Division polices local and state law enforcement and in most major cities there are internal affairs sections to investigate suspected police corruption or misconduct, no information was made available to Press TV.
