On Tuesday (9.29), New Orleans Inspector General Ed Quatrevaux publicly released an intense letter demanding that the Ethics Review Board fire Independent Police Monitor Susan Hutson for "ethical misconduct and unprofessional conduct.” At 11p.m. on Wednesday (9.30) night, Hutson fired back with a letter of her own.
