Asshole Cops Need Jail Time

Look at this bs!

The cops accused of murdering Adolph Grimes were the same cops that brutalized the Crutchfield family earlier that night.

I hear NOPD horror story after NOPD horror story living in this city. I hate it. Enough is enough.

"I will have the biggest gang available to me. The NOPD."

- Rep. Austin Badon in a recent speech.

Oh how true those words are.

would love to have audio or video of that

Papa Bear said...

No audio or video, just 30 people (including 3 judge and 1 state rep candidates) who were there.

Everyone has a cop story here. And they wonder why they cannot get cooperation with witnesses for violent crimes.

my understanding is the cops know they fucked up. Grimes was alone and they came at him like a gang on the attack. how was he supposed to respond?

"Grimes was alone and they came at him like a gang on the attack."

That scenario seems increasingly plausible.

It doesn't look good at all.

What upsets me the most is public relations campaign to portray Grimes as a thug criminal.

The NOPD has every right to manage public relations if they believe people were jumping to unfair conclusions or convicting these cops of murder without a trial. This is not how it happened unfortunately. The NOPD PR machine was the one that made unfair frivolous inferences about the character of the victim before their investigation of the incident had begun.

There's no shame.

The NOPD can be cleaned up if my decent and well meaning white brothers and sisters step out in front of this and take the lead. I don't think it's out of line to say that the NOPD takes you guys complaints more seriously. Well, they don't really do enough to address yours either but at least the media will show up.

The NOPD is a horror show. Whoever raises their hands up to call them out better be ready for the heat they bring.

Just the other night, I said to someone, "Of course I don't trust the NOPD--I'm from here and I'm a woman, for fuck's sake." [OK, I just added "for fuck's sake" but it was in the subtext.] Some are good, and NOPD is good, generally and in comparison to other police departments of its size and with this population, with basic crowd control. Think Mardi Gras. Think Jazz Fest. Think Sugar Bowl and Halloween. Once it gets more complex than that, a youngish police force is out of its league. It takes sophistication to deal with people and 4x that to deal in a place like this with so much personal crime, drinking, [rightful] distrust of authority and Authority, gun ownership, poverty, drug use, corruption and oppression, and and and. The Grimes story is obvious in its omissions. Cops high on their own farts--I mean muscle and whatnot--got careless. The best thing to do for our communities is to find the truth as best as can be found quickly and punishment doled out. We the people need to see, for once, even if that "for once" is only perception, the system work for Us, not everyone who isn't or aspires to not be Us.
