Selective Enforcement of City Ordinances

This city could have made hundreds of thousands of dollars if they had only issued citations and summons for ridiculous Mardi Gras parade behavior.

One of those links also represents the most rational, reasonable, well-behaved comments section on NOLA.com, ever. (At least, when I looked it over.)

But Jeffrey makes a fantastic point - no such leniency was demonstrated when the NOPD employed tasers, billy clubs, pepper spray, and arrests to take down the art kids in the Krewe of Eris for not having a parade permit.
