Another News Dump: BPD Discipline

So now, roughly five years after an FBI informant began taping Boston police officers regularly partying with "known drug dealers" and prostitutes; some four years after Roberto Pulido was caught on tape talking about supplying illegal steroids to other officers; three years after federal agents submitted affadavits claming that Pulido was paying off his department superiors to keep the "Boom-Boom Room" parties hushed up; nearly two years since an agent testified that two other BPD officers were running illegal after-hours parties; barely 16 months after Commissioner Ed Davis told me that soon "the cancer that was growing within the Boston Police Department will be removed"; and by strange coincidence on a stormy Thursday afternoon leading into a three-day holiday weekend, Davis announced the conclusion of the internal investigation, with 11 officers receiving reprimands or suspensions. The federal criminal investigation is technically still open, but sources tell me, that no further criminal charges are likely.

I'm sure I'll have more to say about this later.
