    July 24 2012 will go down in the history of The USA just as momenteous as May 17,1954 and January 22,1973. For you who are not aware of these dates these were Brown vs BOE Topeka Kansas and Roe vs Wade.Todays take over of a local PD however corrupt is unpresidented and will affect us far nore then either of the above happenings. Remember "I'm from the Federal Government and I am here to help". Talk about the fox guarding the hen-house. Make your blood boil? Well I should say. I remember the bumper strippers of the 50's and 60's SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL POLICE. I didn't pay much attention then. But I'm beggining to see the light.
    Justice Dept/Eric Holder take control of New Orleans PD.

    Granted, this was a result of the Bush administration:
    And granted, I understand the reasoning behind this; similar to the events in Mississippi in the 60's, policemen who were corrupt and the federal government had to step in to protect citizens.

    But how did this get by Governor Jindal? How does the state government simply get bypassed? Was there some type of coordination involved? Or did the republican governor get blind-sided by the mayor of New Orleans?

    The NOLA police department was corrupt during Katrina.

    Our former Police Chief, Ronal Serpas, left Nashville to go to NOLA about 2010. When he left, there were mixed reviews about his departure.

    From what I read, he is wanting the help from DOJ.

    Next, I hope Eric Holder focuses on Chicago.

    From what I have read it looks like the city of New Orleans has agreed to this overhaul. If they agree to it, how can it be wrong? Does that city not have the right to ask for federal help in sorting out their corrupt police department?

    I don't feel compelled to post links since none were given in the OP.
