Houma Police Officer Cleared

HOUMA, La. (AP) - Houma Police Chief Todd Duplantis says the
U.S. Justice Department has cleared Houma Police in a
discrimination complaint.
The Courier of Houma reports that two black teenagers claimed
they were attacked in April 2007 while leaving a downtown Houma
club. Their mother filed a complaint with the Justice Department
claiming a Houma police officer discriminated against the two, who
were 13 and 16 at the time, by neglecting to investigate or make a
report on the incident.
The federal investigators said they found insufficient evidence
to demonstrate the officer intentionally discriminated against the
two teenagers.
