Unmasking the badge gang

And here the police are always saying that if you’re not doing anything wrong, you’ve got nothing to hide:

Dozens of anti-gang police officers across the city are quitting their assignments over a requirement to reveal personal financial information under strict anti-corruption rules, The Associated Press has learned. Gang units in some of the city’s most violent neighborhoods are being left with multiple vacancies, with officers choosing instead to work regular patrol shifts, Assistant Chief Earl Paysinger said Monday.

That might be an interesting way to end the drug war. Simply impose the same anti-corruption rules on the DEA, the ATF, and the associated divisions of the big city police departments.
