NOPD cop suspended for not breaking up Canal St brawl


Why would a cop just let a fight go on like this? Anybody?

quote:

A New Orleans police officer has been suspended after an incendiary YouTube video surfaced showing the policeman standing by while a group engages in a violent brawl on Canal Street downtown.

Cortez Hankton was suspended without pay, said his attorney Ray Burkart III. He is accused of neglecting duty.

Police have not commented on the widely circulated video. Superintendent Ronal Serpas is expected to comment on the suspension at a 2:30 news conference Wednesday.

The video, which was posted on September 8, shows Hankton standing by while two women and one man throw punches at each other on a Canal Street sidewalk.

I've been gone from NO for a long time. Are you saying this is par for the course now for the NOPD? If so, why did they suspend him?

I would think the NOPD doing things they are not supposed to do is pretty par for the course.

Very likely not that far out of the ordinary. NOPD are by and large a bunch of thugs themselves.

Video went viral. A lot of light on this one.

Their rep was bad even when I lied there, but it was more on the other side of the ledger, ie they were overly violent, not overly passive.

That thought crossed my mind. They may have had no alternative once the video went viral.

They were probably overly passive in this instance because, uh, well, um, I don't think I'm allowed to say.

Oh I agree.

A real mystery wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in a riddle.
