Karen Gadbois wins Ethics Award

We are so proud to have Karen in our neighborhood
and our city.

August 22, 2012
I thought I'd let you know that our own Ms. Gadbois has won a national ethics award for having the courage to write an incredibly unpopular story that revealed the police record of the Algiers Good Samaritan in January -- but also revealed an uneven NOPD policy on releasing the rap sheets of homicide victims. We take no glee in celebrating an award that stems from a terrible situation, in which a man was killed in front of his children while trying to prevent a neighbor from being victimized. But we are proud of making a difficult ethical decision that brought further attention to this practice of the NOPD.
We are able to produce stories like this thanks to your support.
