Yeah, this little news item is not going to play well. There are plenty of places where stuff like this happens. But nowhere does it fit into the local narrative better than right here in New Orleans. No matter what you hear or where you live, behavior like this should not be acceptable to any professional organization.
Police work is hard enough without folks publicly undermining the instituion. My sympathy goes out to all the hard working law enforcement officers who do the right thing, act as professionals, work crappy shifts and have to deal with all the bad things society throws at them - and then have to deal with the public backlash and broken trust because of things like this.
