Best Practice Makes Perfect

A collaboration with Domino developers about how to do it and how to get it right in Domino

Several months ago, a Shreveport, Louisiana police officer was caught on surveillance camera using a taser -- an occasionally deadly weapon -- on a citizen who was just standing there. So far from acting in any sort of threatening manner, the victim of this assault was talking on his cell phone, apparently not aware of the presence of the officer. See the details here. One might expect the response of the Shreveport police department to this blatant and unprovoked assault might be to promptly dismiss the officer and institute criminal proceedings for assault. Not in Louisiana. The officer was suspended for 45 days without pay and as best I can determine, is still working for the Shreveport police.

In case you want to communicate with the city officials of Shreveport, this page contains link to the various city departments, and this page, contact links for the mayor and city council.
