CHP Officers Fired for Actions in New Orleans

The California Highway Patrol said it plans to fire two officers after an internal investigation. Unfortunately, it is not for brutally bodyslamming little old women and stealing their property. It is for shooting alligators while they were working jackbooting in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina.

The investigation determined the officers shot and killed at least one alligator and failed to report the firing of their weapons, as required by CHP policy, according to Fran Clader, a spokeswoman at CHP headquarters in Sacramento, CA. Clader says the officers also broke Louisiana law when they killed the alligator. Clader called the incident an embarrassment to the department.

No comment was given regarding the CHP treating law abiding New Orleans citizens like dirt, stealing their property, forcibly removing them from their homes, and loading them onto trucks to be processed and shipped out of state against their will. I suppose violations of the US Constitution are not an embarrassment to the California Highway Patrol.

Since when does the Constitution mean anything in California?

It's against some hippie's rights to physically remove them from land they're tresspassing on to protest something or another, but it's totally fine to physically remove people from their own home who have committed no crime.

Gotta love double standards.

Who wants to bet that the lesson CHP learns is "Treat people as badly as you want, just leave the damn Gators alone."
