U.S. Attorney Jim Letten, center, listens during a news conference in New Orleans, Thursday, March 17, 2011, that was held to announce the findings of a U.S. Department of Justice report into the New Orleans Police Department that was requested by New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu when he entered office. Pictured with Letten are Assistant Attorneys General Thomas Perez, left, and Roy Austin. New Orleans police officers have often used deadly force without justification, repeatedly made unconstitutional arrests and engaged in racial profiling, the Justice Department said Thursday in a scathing report.
