Wow. Serpas goes on at length about why he can't improve the murder rate, and not one word about the role of building trust with a community that's terrified of NOPD (outside of two token officers tossed at the Latino and Vietnamese communities)? And a communty that's terrified with good reason, as we watch more officers go down for the violent crimes they've committed and covered up. Serpas, community policing and building community trust is increasingly standard practice across the country--didn't cross your mind as a good option for New Orleans?
And how does Serpas explain the dozens of arrests last week for minor charges (prostitution, traffic violations, other municipal), the same stuff he just said he wasn't going to be arresting for anymore? How's that for building trust?
And what's the deal with this awful new policy of releasing criminal records for victims who die of violent crimes?? Is dehumanizing victims the new trend in "groundbreaking" policing?
Gambit, where are the tough questions?? Serpas, just because you're not addressing the difficult issues doesn't mean we're not all thinking about them.
