The department is "instigating" several of its officers for illegal steroid use? I could understand if they were investigating their officers, but I don't know why they would be encouraging it. Why does the story jump around? Start with steroids and end with steroids (without saying much) and the middle write about a theft. This is all around poor writing. Don't take this into a courtroom, rookie.

Bad for all of us.
