At Least She Wasn’t Wearing a Powder Blue Shirt

Posted By on Thu, Jul 17, 2008 at 2:55 PM

Katy Reckdahl’s account in today’s T-P of a harrowing incident involving an unidentified, irate New Orleans policewoman brandishing a gun and hurling vulgarities outside a Treme daycare center — sending kids and parents scurrying for cover — is yet another example of how out-of-whack NOPD is these days. Read the story to get all the details, which Katy (a former Gambit Weekly writer) does a fabulous job of gathering and reporting. Hopefully, the story’s front-page treatment will put some pressure on NOPD brass to identify and discipline the offending officers — both the gun-waving  woman and the male investigating officer who swept the incident under the rug. The incident also provides further proof of why NOPD needs a civilian monitor. (See, Gambit commentaries here, here and here, just to name a few.)

    What’s needed is for someone to challenge the legality of Act 859, and the State Police Retirement System board is the logical party. Problem is, the board is dominated by Jindal appointees.
