These are a few days samples.

Quote:
New Professionalism Roundup
# Seven Oakland police officers caught lying on search warrant affidavits will return to the job. The police union apparently successfully argued that lying before a judge to obtain a warrant for a drug raid was merely a “training issue.”
# Fort Worth police officer gets his job back after attempting to use his status as a cop for favorable treatment during a traffic stop. At the time, he was already suspended “over allegations that he used police resources to find the address of a romantic rival whose pickup was later struck by gunfire.” In both cases he was fired. And in both cases, he got his job back.
# Woman called police to say she feared her husband, also a police officer, might kill her. The officer she spoke with then immediately told her husband about the call.
# In Denver, a half dozen people are suing the city for false arrest and imprisonment after a bizarre series of cases in which police arrested and jailed the wrong person. In some cases, the wrong person was jailed for months. In one case, police insisted to a 5′7″, 38-year-old black woman that she was actually a 5′3″, 25-year-old white woman. A special prosecutor began investigating the incidents, but then had his investigation shut down when the city decided to grant immunity to the main officer involved. The city was apparently worried about civil lawsuits from the wrongfully jailed. See here, here, and here.
# Chicago police officer who killed two people in a drunk driving accident last week was involved in two prior serious accidents. In one, he changed his story about what happened. In the other, he injured two fellow officers after striking a police car. He doesn’t appear to have been tested for alcohol in either accident, and remained on the force after both.
# Yet another twist in the police shooting of a Hmong teenager in Minneapolis (first mentioned on this site here).
