re: NOPD cop suspended for not breaking up Canal St fight (video in link)(Posted by jbgleason on 9/18/13 at 4:03 pm to Cecil D Diesel)
Back in the day, 80's early 90's, any BS in the Quarter earned you a righteous night stick party from the NOPD. My advice to out of town friends was to run from any altercation because NOPD would beat you just for being nearby. Hell, when I was a kid the NOPD carried sawed-off cypress knees on duty as clubs. But you know what, there wasn't violent crime, fights or shootings down there either.
Now the police are worried about getting sued for excessive force and crime is out of control. That being said, the OT is a tough place for the Po Po. If that guy had waded in swinging, everyone here would be all TPOS PIG on the guy.
