  1. Here are the 8 reports of police misconduct tracked for Saturday, September 8 to Monday September 10, 2012:
    • New York, New York: An officer [Paul Pizzuto] was fired for ticketing dead people. He says he did it to meet the NYPD’s supposedly non-existent monthly quotas.
    • Collingdale, Pennsylvania: An officer [Meghan Kelly Hurrelbrinck] was suspended after she was arrested for an alleged DUI.
    • Baton Rouge, Louisiana: Two officers [Derek Jason Burns, "accused of forging signatures on several misdemeanor summons without the individuals having knowledge of such act"; Mitchell Duncan, accused of breaking in to a woman's home - and assaulting her while he was on the clock] were arrested in one week. The chief [Dewayne White] has expressed his disappointment saying, “This agency shouldn’t be judged by the actions of one officer. We’re not going to sweep things under the rug, we’re going to take the appropriate action. If that means arresting and terminating an officer for those offenses, than so be it.”
    • Chicago, Illinois: An off-duty officer [Joseph Frugoli] who crashed into a disabled car and killed two men pleaded guilty to a DUI. He was found walking away from the crash when he was apprehended. When taken to the hospital, his blood-alcohol level was about triple the legal amount. Previously, the officer has been involved in two other serious wrecks.
    • Update: Little Rock, Arkansas: Officer John Hastings has been charged with manslaughter in the death of a 15-year-old boy. The autopsy indicates that the boy’s head was turned to the right, looking over his shoulder when he was shot in the head.
    • Collin County, Texas: A sergeant [Paul Figueroa]was arrested and accused of family violence assault, a misdemeanor. He is on administrative leave while the investigation continues.
