    Report blasts new Orleans Police

    New Orleans police officers have engaged in unconstitutional conduct and violated federal laws in their use of excessive force; illegal stops, searches and arrests; racial and ethnic profiling; and mistreatment of gays, according to a scathing Justice Department report released Thursday.

    The report, culminating a 10-month investigation by the department’s Civil Rights Division, says New Orleans police regularly used excessive force as retaliation but were not held accountable; deployed canines that were “uncontrollable;” lacked training programs on alternatives to force; regularly harassed gays and lesbians, and failed to investigate sexual assaults and domestic violence.

    I just read this, and I have to say that I have met a number of cops from Louisiana, and they are as well trained and professional as cops from anywhere else. Once again the media is painting with a wide brush, focusing on the actions of a vast minority. I don't know how many cops N.O. employs, but I'd be willing to bet that there is a much higher percentage of good, honest, hard-working cops than there is "bad" cops.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Deputy Attorney General James Cole, who attended the news conference, noted that some New Orleans police officers “come to work each and every day dedicated to the vital role they play in protecting and serving the citizens of this wonderful City.


    That is a start, at least he acknowledges that some of the officers are good. I expect the Chief to be let go and either a new one appointed or the Justice Department taking over the department till it can be "righted" in their eyes.

    NOPD can't catch a break. With the city being run by Democrats I wonder why the department they run is so poorly managed? That's surprising since everything else New Orleans does is managed so well. Oh wait.

    Once again, all the good that agency does is tarred and over shadowed by a few idiots.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    the justice dept is saying the same crap about other agencies also. Seattle PD for example. I think it is just a way to force local agencies to comply with what they want via consent decrees.

    Mitch Landrieu names Nashville Police Chief Ronal Serpas as New Orleans' top cop

    Published: Thursday, May 06, 2010, 11:30 AM Updated: Thursday, May 06, 2010, 7:03 PM

    Ronal Serpas, who served as second-in-command to New Orleans Police Chief Richard Pennington

    Now this guy came in with a head full of steam. I think the total of arrests were 9 quick fast and in a hurry. I don't know what happened to make him move on but I can imagine.

    Pennington grew up in Gary, Indiana. He began his career in law enforcement in 1968 as a police officer in Washington, D.C., where he was eventually promoted to Assistant Chief. In 1994, he was hired as police chief in New Orleans, and was credited with major improvements in what had been a poorly-regarded and corruption-ridden police department. In fact, conditions in the department were so bad before Pennington arrived, the U.S. Justice Department was threatening to move in & take over the city's law enforcement.
