NOAA Didn’t Preserve Two of Everything

J0437388 NOAA's Top Cop Ousted.

Spoliation knocks off another one.  Dale J. Jones was director of law enforcement at NOAA, aka the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  There were allegations of impropriety.  An Inspector General was appointed to look into it.  Fully aware of this – and while the investigation was underway – Jones ordered the shredding of pertinent documents.  Obviously, the most disturbing part of this story is that he was the nation's chief of police for the oceans.
