Bad Cops

According to New Orleans police Captain Eddie Hosli, only 30 out of his 120 officers reported for duty the day after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the city. The AWOL officers only began trickling back to work after being promised five expenses-paid days in Las Vegas, prompting Hosli to tell them, "You've got your own demons to live with. I'm not going to judge you." Mayor Ray Nagin, when asked why nearly 60 percent of the force was going to be relaxing in Sin City rather than searching for survivors, responded: "New Orleans is a party town. Get over it."
