    Nagin Defends Use of 'Phantom Police'

    Ray Nagin, mayor of New Orleans, lashed back at critics after the FBI
    discovered that up to 700 so-called members of the city police force simply

    did not exist. Funding for many of these officers was provided by the federal
    government.

    "During the storm and aftermath we'd heard reports that hundreds of New
    Orleans police officers had deserted their post," said an FBI spokesman.

    "Further investigation indicates that these posts had never been manned

    and the funds supposedly paid in wages has disappeared."

    "Sure we overstated the number of officers on the force," said Nagin. "We
    did this to deter crime."

    As Nagin explained it, the phantom officers were used as a decoy to frighten
    would-be offenders. "Just as George Washington lit fake campfires to lull
    the British troops before his surprise attack at Princeton, we in New Orleans
    have employed a similar strategy."

    The effectiveness of Nagin's alleged strategy is in doubt, though. New Orleans

    has one of the highest crime rates per capita in the nation.



    Now, I realize this was written by a conservative. But, he admited to these "false officers". This may be another reason the chief of police was "offered" retirement?? Also, why all the deception? Why not just hire extra officers to take care of the crime, since they already were getting the money????????? I think he's nothing but a corrupt politician ( this kind of goes hand in hand though really).

    I bolded an interresting point, if this was all above board why didn't Negan say something about the hundreds of missing officers and admit they weren't real at that time instead of waiting for it it be found out by the FBI????

    Even when we do get more blacks in government all politicians seem to turn out the same. Greedy selfish crooks. And what did he do with the federal money the government gave him for more police?
    Maybe he counted on these same imaginary employees to drive the buses to evacuate the people. And that why he had hundreds of buses parked and ruined in the flood. If he wasn’t going to use them to evacuate the people at least move the buses to higher ground so not to be ruined.

    This is exactly why it will never matter who is in power in this country, because they are all the same once they get that high in the system. Black politicians are no better than white ones and the all got the same agenda, milk the common people for whatever they can get while they have their position.

    I never like Nagin from the beginning. The way he used the fact that he was black and grandstanded when the Hurricane hit and pointed the finger at everyone else while minimizing his own faulted responsibilities let me know just what type of person he is.

    He is a fraud. He is just as bad as those bullcrap, crooked white politicians being opportunists.

    This only adds to the problem.
