Another "Rodney King" Cop Beating - in New Orleans!?

Saturday night, and we find the French Quarter in post-Katrina recovery. People have begun to get their lives, and their houses, back in order again. Bourbon Street has welcomed back its patrons, and outside a nearby bar, a 64-year-old black man gets pummeled by two white police officers for resisting arrest, while a third assaults an AP News producer....and it's all on tape. Several punches to the back of the head as he is dragged down to the gutter, bleeding from the arm.

The three officers identified in the incident are subjects of an immediate criminal investigation, according to the chief spokesman for the New Orleans Police Department Capt. Marlon Defillo, on Sunday. He termed this incident "troubling," and said that the three will be suspended and arrested for battery (which they just were tonight).

This comes after the resignation last month of black Police Superintendent, Eddie Compass, and fantastic allegations of intentional genocide against black neighborhoods by the government (courtesy of Louis Farrakhan).

Obviously, emotions are still running high in Sin City - and no doubt the licquor is flowing freer than ever. Reportedly, Officers have slept in their cars and worked double and tripple shifts in the hurricane's wake. Many also lost their homes and were separated from (and/or lost) members of their families.

But these policemen REALLY should have known better. This is just the sort of thing that keeps the racial hate-mongers like Jackson and Sharpton on our televisions and in their limos and mansions.

The video itself is rather damning, as it clearly shows several seconds of the beating - but time and additional evidence will tell. For now, these men are getting what they seem to deserve with their suspensions and arrests.

And while I do believe that there is still racism in America against blacks, times have changed dramatically since the days of Rosa Parks - and even Rodney King. I am hoping that we can ALL put this racial nonense behind us at some point in this lifetime, and that the tragic mishandling (at all levels) of emergency services in New Orleans will motivate us to do better with the security of our homeland in the very, very near future.
