Two former New Orleans police officers and a New Orleans firefighter were rejected for jobs in the Dallas Police Department because of allegations they deserted their jobs during Hurricane Katrina.

I personally have no problem with these officers being fired. Although I would consider their leaving their posts and walking off the jobs as them quitting...can you "fire" someone after they've quit?

And while, IMO, they have the right to quit their jobs, I'm glad that Dallas didn't hire them. These are definately not the type of people who should be cops.

Looks like the Liberal Elite of Exisle have finally managed to silence the last remaining Conservative voice on the board.

I'm glad of it; puts a blot on their records.  

I heard tell of one former NOPD officer trying to get a job in nearby
Baton Rouge, but they flatly turned him down b/c he bolted from his
post in a time of crisis.  

I wouldn't want him either.

Good for NOPD.  Now, they need to do more--like clear out the corruption within the department.
