Pending Drug Cases In Jeopardy Because Of Arrest of Narcs

Marion Co. Prosecutor Carl Brizzi tells the Star's Vic Ryckaert that he is worried about the fate of pending drug cases after the recent arrests of four narcotics officers for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department on a variety of criminal charges. “These officers were in this court several weeks ago testifying against defendants,” Prosecutor Carl Brizzi said after the hearing. “Now they are defendants.” "The arrests have damaged more than a dozen other pending cases and could lead to successful appeals for convicted drugs dealers who may have been sent to prison based on testimony from one of the tainted officers," Brizzi said. “Every other man and woman on the force is tarnished by this,” Brizzi said. “Every single case these officers were on becomes less strong.”

Good move on the part of the Peterson/Anderson administrations.
They were both in charge when these officers were hired.
I guess when your buddies need a job where they can abuse their powers, you should give them one.
Am I the only one that noticed Frank Anderson got the phone call at home regardin the bank robbery/shooting suspect? Doesn't Frank have an unlisted number? Guess one of his friends was involved.

Too bad he isn't worried about people wrongfully convicted by lying officers. Instead he will not allow his deputies dismiss when they are convinced the police aren't telling the truth.

No one likes or will defend rogue cops. I think that Brizzi probably has bigger things to worry about instead of what might happen, if and when or could happen........
