Lawless in Louisiana


Public safety may not be as important as one would think in Louisiana. The southeastern U.S. state on the Gulf of Mexico has a history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures.

There is outrage while the more things seem to change in America, the more they appear to stay the same or get worse when it comes to enforcing the law, or not.

One day following an incident where a black man was killed in an officer-involved shooting, another black man was shot and killed by police during a traffic stop Wednesday in Falcon Heights, Minn.

Public safety authorities report that St. Anthony Police Officers were conducting a traffic stop when an officer fired at least one shot at Philando Castile in the car.

Mr. Castile was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment, where he was pronounced dead.
