Police Brutality

One of the finer moments of the New Orleans Police Department. The men and women of NOPD have been stressed and stretched that they are taking out their frustrations on people that irritate them. I watched the video but here's the link for the story.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051011/..._taped_beating

This is one of the uncommon occurences that some had video taped police brutality. Police brutality occurs in every large city on this planet except that it usually isn't taped as evidence against the department. These guys don't represent everyone on the force but there are quite a few of these guys in every police force.

Re: Police Brutality

they should keep those officers on the force, give them desk/**** jobs and attach their wages till his award is paid off. Give them a little reminder every month of what they did.

Re: Police Brutality

I've heard some interesting stories about the NOPD from current (?) residents... not pretty.

There is an attorney that filed a class action lawsuit against the city of New Orleans. After he returned from Baton Rouge, he was promptly arrested for "public intoxication" and had a mishap with the stairs downtown.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Re: Police Brutality

I just watched the video of the incident. They bloodied up the guy pretty good, and none of the cops seemed to be hurt.

Re: Police Brutality

I think in TX, you are allowed to fight back against the cops if they are just kicking your ass,and if your life is in danger, you are able to use deadly force against them.

If that is true, kudos to Texas! Of course, who is gonna win that battle in a "court of law"? That said, Texas will still always be besmirched by the fact that GWB hails from there. Come and get me Mo Noyz and BDA! I must say, I DO like their history of lethal injections.

If true that is awesome. I wonder if that is the case in Florida as well?
I too have heard about how corrupt the New Orleans police department
was. I heard that something like 65% of the people who left New Orleans
do not want to go back because of how corrupt the city was. The cops
were supposedly as bad as the gangs.

Now that would be smart. Pull a gun on 4 cops that are kicking your ass.

And then there's this asshole...

In Texas no less.

Dude, you don't mess with the cops in Texas. They don't hesitate to execute down there.

Im just saying that would be the last resort option.. if your life was in danger from the police, you might as well use deadly force back.. your about to die anyways, you should always fight all the way if your life is in danger.

If you don't kill a cop, you might (probably IMO) live through the beating and be able to go on living a normal life.

If you kill a cop, you're almost surely going to end up on death row. And in TX, they keep the death chamber warmed up...

as well he shouldn't....I'd sue the fuggin pants off the dept. too....The guy wasn't drunk, wasn't resisting and was minding his own business....then to have four corrupt, punk-ass cops jump on him???.....ridiculous....but, he'll probably get screwed over in court though b/c I'm sure some of the judges are "in bed" with the cops as well....

Re: Police Brutality

I'm in total agreement with you he should get paid.

Not because I think he deserves "to get rich" so much (though he certainly deserves some substantial cash) but because "money talks", it's the best way to send a message to cops that doing this is NOT OK.

The trial will be interesting.

Well, not that "money talks", that's the only means of compensation for a victim in this country. We don't normally trade first-born children or even herds of camels too often. Suffering is something impossible to negate so a dollar figure goes on it as well as everything else.

This would be a civil suit against the department, right? I doubt those particular cops will be paying anything of the award. To get a message to them (specifically) some other administrative reprimand would probably be necessary.

Sperm donor. Maybe.
