Quote Of The Day

Indianapolis Public Safety Director Dr. Frank Straub, on all the negative publicity his department's officers have been getting over teensy-weensy oopsies like drunken vehicular homicide, firing a gun in a police car during an argument with a girlfriend, covering up a DUI hit-and-run in a police car and other endearing little quirks:
"You have to ask, 'What's going on here?' Is there another game I'm not aware of? What's the motivation?"
Yeah, gee, Frank, doesn't everyone expect a big-city police department to be a bunch of hard-drinking, hard-hitting losers?

No, pal, no we don't. I can't speak for anyone but me, but I've been pretty darned disappointed in IMPD. I know there are good folks on the force, but it's looking more and more like it might be time for a housecleaning. You may be a new broom, Doc, but you're not sweepin' 'em any cleaner.

Could be worse. Indy doesn't have any cops on state or federal death row, the way we do down here in New Orleans...
