Why Would Atlanta Police Chief George Turner Punish The Reckless Officers Who Raided The Eagle?

Even though at least two of the three undercover Atlanta police officers who entered The Eagle before the raid to conduct surveillance were getting hammered while on the job, Chief George Turner has no plans to discipline any of the cops involved in the botched raid that left the city on the hook for a $1+ million lawsuit settlement and a public apology from Mayor Kasim Reed. And why would he? It’s not like the department’s LGBT Advisory Group recommended he do exactly that. Oh, wait.

    Good on them for getting some compensation from that craziness.

    Hmmm… It seems the linked article suggests he is simply not taking action yet; because the case is under an on going review.

    “Atlanta police Chief George Turner brushed off a request from his own LGBT advisory group to take action against officers involved in the botched raid of the Eagle, saying taking action now would interfere with an ongoing internal probe into the incident.”

    I don’t know the specifics, but it would seem if there is an ongoing investigation; it makes sense that he is waiting before leveling punishments…
