A controversial New Orleans Police Department policy of releasing the criminal records of crime victims ended after The Lens' pointed out inconsistencies in the application of the practice. When a father of two died trying to stop another woman's carjacking, the department praised him as a Good Samaritan and highlighted his years of volunteering for their office, but didn't mention his criminal record. After we searched his background, we published that he had a history of arrests for marijuana possession and LSD distribution that spanned as far back as the '80s. Shortly after our story, the department ended the policy.
