New Orleans Police Out of Control

The APTN tape shows an officer hitting the suspect, Davis, at least four times in the head Saturday night outside a French Quarter bar. Davis appeared to resist, twisting and flailing as he was dragged to the ground by four officers.

Another of the officers then kneed Davis and punched him twice. Davis was face-down on the sidewalk with blood streaming down his arm and into the gutter.

CNN for full story

I saw this video on the news and it was Rodney King all over again. That man was a retired school teacher who came back to see what his destroyed property looked like after the hurricanes. He was brutally beaten in the head with fists and once down on the ground was twisted into some sort of pretzel position. Finally due to the news cameras the beating stopped, then the police turned on the camera man. And they had the nerve to plead not guilty! Well at least, they have been suspended without pay. It is a tragedy this has happened again.

The only bad thing is that NOLA has no money left as there are no people there. He most likely has a very good law suit and deserves to be paid, but where will the money come from?

They seem to be just a criminal minded as the criminals they are supposed to keep watch over. Where did all the cars go? Why were they stealing all those cars and cadillacs?

However, the cars may have been taken before the hurricane even roared into town August 29, according to the president and general manager of the dealership, Doug Stead.

Stead said the cars included 88 new Cadillacs and Chevrolets, 40 used cars, 52 customers' cars and a restored 1970 El Camino and 1966 Impala.

"We put the loss on new cars at $3.7 million," Stead said. "The used cars ran another $900,000."

When reports first surfaced last month that officers may have taken the cars, New Orleans Police Superintendent Warren Riley said it was not considered looting because the officers patrolled in the cars.


Now tell me if I am wrong, but just because you are now patrolling in the cars does not make it correct. It is still stealing! It would be different MAYBE if the cars were still in New Orleans, but people are seeing the stolen cars being driven in Houston and Baton Rouge! Please!

Stead said he got calls from people telling him they had seen his cars in Baton Rouge, Houston and other cities with uniformed police officers driving them. He said people saw his cars parked outside a police precinct.
I guess since the police chief resigned there is nothing left as control or leadership for the few men who are still hanging on ..on the force. Eddie Compass Resigns.

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
