    New Orleans LEO killed with own weapon during struggle...

    http://www.clarionledger.com/apps/pb.../NEWS/80128023

    NEW ORLEANS — A man wanted for questioning in a rape overpowered a police officer who was trying to handcuff him and then shot her to death with her own weapon, police Superintendent Warren Riley said.

    The officer’s identity was being withheld pending notification of her family.

    It happened around 10 a.m. Monday in a parking lot near a busy intersection in the crime-plagued Central City neighborhood.

    The officer was pursuing a man who was wanted for questioning in a rape. She stopped him and began questioning him, Riley said.

    Riley said the man was sitting down when the officer reached out to handcuff him, he pushed her away and the two struggled for several minutes.

    During the struggle the officer was able to use her radio to call for backup but the man, described by Riley as being “twice her size,” grabbed her weapon and shot her multiple times, Riley said.

    After shooting the woman, the man did not flee, Sgt. Joe Narcisse said. The suspect was apprehended by police.

    Riley said the police have several witnesses to the shooting. The parking lot is located outside of a food store, laundromat and Urban Avenue clothing store in Central City. The struggle, however, took place behind the police officer’s vehicle, which may have shielded the violence from many who were at the busy intersection, he said.

    Damn, the year is not starting out too well. This is the ultimate in our profession. But, to be overpowered is very tragic. RIP Officer! Your loss will be avenged.

    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    Rest Easy Sister.
    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    Man indicted in NOPD officer's killing

    by Gwen Filosa, The Times-Picayune Thursday February 14, 2008, 12:57 PM


    STAFF FILE PHOTO BY TED JACKSONNOPD homocide detectives Anthony Caprera and Joseph Catalanotto walk Bernel Johnson, 44 from Orleans Parish lockup.
    An Orleans Parish grand jury today indicted Bernel P. Johnson for the first-degree murder of New Orleans Police Officer Nicola Cotton, who was gunned down Jan. 28 in Central City after trying to detain Johnson, who has a history of mental illness.
    Johnson, 44, has been described by his family as a paranoid schizophrenic. He remains in jail without any chance for bond -- the legal standard for anyone accused of capital murder.
    Johnson's case hasn't yet been allotted to a section of Orleans Parish Criminal District Court.
    First-degree murder carries either life in prison or lethal injection upon conviction. Johnson, known among the homeless community in New Orleans before his arrest, appeared in court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing, during which he repeatedly asked a judge for military lawyers.
    Cotton, 24, was killed with her own service weapon, a .40-caliber Glock handgun, which police say Johnson wrested from her when she tried to handcuff him in a parking lot off Earhart Boulevard.
    Security cameras from a nearby business captured the confrontation, police and prosecutors say. This week, Johnson's defense lawyers were denied early access to the tape by Magistrate Judge Gerard Hansen. Orleans Parish prosecutors said the defense team is entitled to the tape only after an indictment is issued.
    Johnson hasn't yet had the chance to enter a plea to the indictment, but his defense lawyers appear poised to launch an insanity defense.
    An Orleans Parish jury hasn't sent a convicted killer to death row since 1997, when Phillip Anthony was condemned for the triple killing at the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen in the French Quarter.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    This saddens my heart.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
