Baton Rouge cops go rogue during St. Patrick's Day parade 0

By Carlos Miller

Baton Rouge police officers used their horses to trample over people, their Tasers to shock people and their badges to intimidate people from asking simple questions during Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.

And when one college student tried to photograph the melee, he was threatened with arrest, according to a student journalist who wrote about the incident for the Louisiana State University newspaper.

“I’m going to tell you one thing,” the cop said: Get that camera out of here. And that’s all I’m gonna say.”

Hopefully, we’ll hear more details about this story.
