Several days ago, Tam asked me, "Aren't you going to post a link to the latest in the Bisard case?"
I will, but I'm in no hurry. "Recent information" is just more spin and glurge, as IMPD goes full-Flight 007: "It probably didn't happen and we were justified anyway."
LEO culture includes drinkin'. Always has, always will; it's how some people deal with the combinationof stress and boredom the job entails.* You can't get rid of it. What it shouldn't -- and in most cases doesn't -- include is drinking on duty. IMPD seems to have a problem with that and it remains a problem even after they've swept it into a big ugly lump under the carpet.
They've made a lot of staff changes, and sent Frank Straub packing, but I don't see any evidence that the department admits they have a problem. You can't control what you won't confront.
"Hi. I'm the IMPD, and..." Well?
* Reminds me of rock'n'roll DJs back in the day, though they were shot at less and stalked more. Lot of 'em found off-duty time looked more interesting through the bottom of a glass container. Some of them fell in.
