    Louisiana is a toilet?

    Good thing I'm moving out west.
    Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop.

    All this anti-cop stuff.

    The NOPD is still under a Federal Consent Decree. That is where that policy came from. Some officers have defied the policy and paid a heavy price for it. Others have figured out that you can simply follow the car without your lights on and feel it out for a period of time before requesting permission for a 10-28, or you pretend that you are not giving chase and call it in as a 20I after the perps vehicle crashes.

    I know a Detective from the 7th District who did get permission for a 10-28 last Thursday to chase a carjacker all the way to Kenner. After spotting the vehicle, giving chase, and working with Kenner and JPSO to take this piece of garbage off the street for good, my friend was written up for “driving against traffic” instead of getting a commendation. He told me that he would do again and again! I am very proud of him.

    I agree that lawlessness leads to anarchy. And I agree there must not be any law enforcement in NOLA. I don’t think that any of that other stuff applies to NOLA though.
    Apparently chasing someone violating a traffic law is more important than grand theft auto. Pretty sure they’ll pursue you further than one block for failing to use a signal or running a red light. Apparently the truck thief was obeying all traffic laws. Now, just apply all that logic and try to imagine what a cesspool NOLA is gonna be in a couple more years… yup.
    Doesn’t play well with TROLLS...

    I'm speaking on a national level, but, where the nation goes so go the states. This is I'm afraid going to get much worse! We have a totally corrupt and illegitimate federal government, the courts are out of control, local district attorneys aren't enforcing the law, thefts and looting are not being prosecuted, man I could go on and on.

    All of this with the out of control illegal immigration on the southern border and not to mention a corrupt FBI. What I'm seeing scares the hell out of me!

    Inviting that federal oversight was the worst thing Mitch Landrieu did while in office. It may have been coming down the pipe on it's own at some point, but they should have let it go the natural course and tried to work on improvement within to avert as much of it as possible. We helped SO chase a fresh stolen into NOLA early one morning, ended with a crash on Hayne at Bullard or Crowder, perp had two firearms he'd been toting around when he took the vehicle (it was one of those 'started the car but went back inside for something forgotten' incidents). NOPD, LSP, Levee District also showed up when done. NOPD said "we don't even chase for that," refused to do the crash so I think the Levee District guy piped up to work it, and said they weren't booking the guy into OPP, so the SO deputies talked the EMS crew that had the guy in the back to transport him back across the lake to SMH for his clearance before booking.

    That is a very lazy opinion. All you see on the news is the bad events from New Orleans, so you seem to believe that the ENTIRE CITY is bad place to be. Tonight is just another peaceful quiet night in my Mid-City neighborhood. I avoid Downtown on the weekends as much as possible these days. Uptown and Mid-City have many nice places to go for locals, so I spend most of my time there. With the exception of my Marine Corps service, I have lived in Orleans Parish all my life and have yet to be the victim of a carjacking or 64G.
    Do you believe the media when they tell you that owning an AR-15 is bad and that only criminals use them?
    Your opinion of New Orleans seems to reflect that of the Liberal media.

    my opinion on New Orleans, and yes I strongly feel that New Orleans is a shithole, is based after working on Bourbon on/off for several years bartending (robbed twice while at work), having friends with NOPD and hearing the stories of "their day at work", PARTIALLY on the media, and generally just driving around. Yes there are a few isolated blocks of the city that aren't horrible, and a couple that are nice. But generally, speaking, That city in my opinion needs to wash away into the gulf. I felt safer overseas.
    If you are so proud of where you're from that you fly your flag everywhere, please go back there. Your flag offends me! American lives Matter!

    Lived and worked down there for three years, I stopped counting after the tenth heroine addict tried pulling a screwdriver or sharp butterknife or some shit on me. I have no intention of ever returning to hot chicago, they deserve everything they vote for overwhelmingly.

    I am sorry to hear that you were robbed on Bourbon st. You and your NOPD friends have seen the worst that ANY metropolitan area has to offer. That will happen if you spend your time in the WORST parts of any major city or if you work long enough for a metro PD. You become jaded and move to a rural area either before or after retirement(I have family and friends who retired from NOPD and moved to rural parts of Mississippi, Kansas, and Texas.). You might feel differently if you had not worked on the worst street in the city(I hate Bourbon St.)
    The truth is that ONE STREET does not define an entire city. I do not see my hometown of New Orleans as a *shit hole* because I do not go to the parts of New Orleans that are bad. I spend my time in the many good parts of the city or parts of Jefferson Parish( there are bad parts of Jefferson that I stay away from.) In any case, I enjoy the nice parts of the city too much to sell my $500,000 house and buy a cheap one in the country. I will also continue to stand my ground by voting against the Democrats.

    You are free to hold on to your hatred and blame the entire city for what happened to you. That is your choice. Cabella’s has a nice little aquarium that is very therapeutic(I visit it every time I go there on the way to BR.) Enjoy!

    I know a former Chicago transit cop who moved here and joined NOPD right before Katrina. He is having a much easier time working in New Orleans than in Chicago.
