Dallas sheetrock blame rolls uphill, finally

While Grits enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday, Dallas PD finally held supervisors accountable for the shameful operation of their narcotics division in the so-called "sheetrock" scandal, where innocent Latino dayworkers were set up with fake drugs by bad cops and sleazy confidential informants. The Dallas Observer has the story. Via Talk Left.

Meanwhile, Vice Squad has the story of another bad cop in Dallas, this time a transit officer who'd rather extort sex from prostitutes than bust them.
