Claiming the prevalence of high-level corruption in the IPD, Officer Chris Miller named two police chiefs, one former mayor, two municipalities, one district attorney, one union president and at least five Ithaca Police officers as defendants in his sprawling, $17-million federal discrimination lawsuit. The resulting legal battle has ensnared Marlon Byrd — a black IPD lieutenant — in allegations that he aided drug dealers, and threatens to destroy the reputations and careers of many others.

There are probably many towns where if the police officers forgot about the blue wall of silence, and started spilling all the dirt they had on each other, all hell would break loose. There is no reason to believe that police departments are any better than the rest of society, and they can get away with a lot more.

I lived in the village of Lansing from 1994-97. Ithaca definitely has way more than its fair share of lefty flakes, but I recall meeting a lot of nice people there.
