MSNBC Link to Looters (Police Included)
MSNBC ^ | 09/13/2005 | Martin Savage

Posted on 09/13/2005 9:24:01 AM PDT by steel_resolve

This is a hilarious vid clip of Martin Savage going into a WalMart and confronting various looters, which include a pair of female cops. He is deadpan hilarious.


TOPICS: News/Current Events; US: Louisiana
KEYWORDS: cops; katrina; kayak; looters; nopd
My favorite exchange:(paraphrase)
Lady Cop:"We're securing the store from looters."
Martin:"Really? Because I think I see some."

Martin:"Really? Because I think I see some."

have to agree with you. one of the funniest quotes to come out of katrina.

and the little pig cop continues to shop. last seen dropping her cruiser off in the parking lot of the astrodome.

Between that clip and the gun grab video with the elderly ladie it is safe to assume that NOPD shows the absolute worst of police actions.

The only difference between NOPD and the bad guys was one was wearing a uniform.

Accountability is called for or all LEO departments will get painted with the same brush.

Normally, I'd say "that's incredible - cops looting on camera."

But this is the New Orleans of Blank-O and Naggin.

Olberman is an idiot.

He was actually making excuses for the looters.

They were rent-a-cops. Never dedicated to "serve and protect". Hopefully, they will serve time. But I doubt it.

The minions of political correctness tell us that these are merely "undocumented shoppers".

What are they supposed to do? I mean there were no workers there to check them out. I blame Walmart!

The cop he was talking to was carrying a gun. Do
normal rent-a-cops carry guns?

Pretty ugly in there. Obviously many of the people caught
in there weren't going for emergency supplies. Plus the place was dry. What happened to the WHOLE city being flooded story?
Like I say, you really cannot trust the mainstream media
to get at the real whole complete story...Olberman
is starting to get me sick..."well I'm glad you have to
make that judgment...he says to Savage(sp?)...well maybe Mr. Olbermann should say that about all of his stories too.

I don't thin so - they had the NO Police crescent and guns...

I just got back this weekend from spending 8 days in New Orleans. Several guys from my PD went to assist NOPD and another local PD. Fortunately, all the Officers I met and worked with there were outstanding. Most of the ones who were weak of character, like the idiots in the video were already gone, leaving behind the ones who were strong in character. I hope the video is used in the conviction of those "police officers" someday. I will say that those guys at NOPD do have terrible leadership, the NOPD top administration is a joke, but there are some outstanding Officers in streets right now. The guys I met last week impressed me.

If y'all are talking about the one who body slammed the elderly lady, they were California Highway Patrol, not NOPD.

What was really finny was the look on the officer's face and the slumped down shoulders when she was confronter by the cameraman. She skulked away knowing she was busted, and was not one bit happy about being on camera in uniform committing a crime. Funniest thing I've ever seen

The ones that stayed behind did a tremendous job. I feel for them. They have to share the name NO cop with those that trashed the duty with which they swore to do.

In any large organization the top 10% of employees do about 50% of the work. When the bad cops left the good cops didn't have to prop them up anymore.

That was a great b*tch slap on the louse Olberman by Savage. Funny how the intellectually weak cannot even find contempt in policewomen stealing during a time when law and order is needed most. Very surprised this was even shown on MSNBC considering their track record.

IIRC those were two Gretna cops, both were arrested about a week later and were unable to bond out due to there being no bail bondsmen left in New Orleans.

Mrs. Lurkin was amused by one request for aid shortly after the storm passed through New Orleans: "Send plus size clothing".

NOBODY wants an I (heart) NO PD.

In fact I predict NO PD is going to be the subject of many jokes. NO PD "we don't just stop looting, we participate"

The little old lady was tackled by a member of the California Highway Patrol, he was accompanied by Louisiana State Police.

I think the NOPD was in Dallas with da Mayor of NOLA.

In many places, some do, and some don't. In Texas they can if they are licensed to do so. As I understand it, the ones who can carry get paid more than the ones who aren't. I know one Taco Cabana in San Antonio would have an unarmed rent a cop most nights, but weekend they would have an armed one. Friday and Saturday night, they'd have the guy that actually looked like a cop or retired military. The rest were fatter than me, and that took some doing then.
