You know those New Orleans cops caught looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina?

Well, according to a New Orleans police spokesman, they weren’t looting. They were, well, let’s let him explain:

Police spokesman Marlon Defillo said police are looking into the possibility that up to 12 officers were involved in misconduct.

The Police Department has 1,750 officers.

He rejected the use of the term “looting” but said authorities were investigating “the possibility of appropriation of non-essential items during the height of Katrina, from businesses.”

Snort.
