Many of these issues were raised in the wake of last week’s revelations that a key piece of evidence in the criminal trial of an Indianapolis police officer accused of running down a trio of motorcyclists and killing one with his patrol car in August of 2010 may have been mishandled.

On April 16, IMPD Sgt. Doug Huestis, the lead investigator in the David Bisard case, confirmed that a vial of the officer’s blood, tagged for examination for the presence of alcohol, had been left unrefrigerated for six months in an auxiliary IMPD property room.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said that evidence may be so degraded it will be useless in the trial.

Isn't that just something? For 6 months.

Ballard continues to fail. I wonder how many of the miscreants within IMPD responsible for this miscarriage of justice will be promoted?

What a lousy lead investigator.
I guess IMPD's definition of investigator differs from that of Webtser's Dictionary.

Re:Straub

Straub Must Go. We will not tolerate being spoken to in a condescending tone by an east-coast outsider. We will not have it! It hurts our feelings.

Re: Bisard

We will do everything in our power and means (even if we must look stupid) to ensure that this brother will be exonerated. It's all about US!
