What is the deal with the "show of force" police presence and the blocked off streets in N'awlins tonight?
Good lord,,thats most nights,,,lol
a truck of kangaroos flipped over there all over its a mess
Maybe they're afraid of vampires.
In the groove
They must have seen what the Toronto police did last week and figured they'd get in on the fun.
RT What is the deal with the "show of force" police presence and the blocked off streets in N'awlins tonight?
perhaps #BP is extending its control
it's something the police do for holidays and special events. You get used to it.
It's the premier of Real World: New Orleans, maybe? ;)
LB, even more importantly, whatchu drinking in NOLA? Sazerac perhaps?
that's there for any big event here in town...the Police force is in a state of transition too....new admin.
didn't you hear? Kunta is in town. Security is tight.
Um . . . it's the 4th of July weekend, and pyrotechnics bring out the rowdiest pyro maniacs.
a lot of Feds in town as well due to oil spill activity
Mississauga,ON aka Toronto
we just had the G-8 and G-20 here, the same type of deal, I think it's something in the air
Not sure...but it doesn't sound good....handle yourself carefully and stay cool man.
that's every year at essence! You have 50k moving at once!
That is normal for large events.
hooker and drug crackdown plus a plethora of African americans in one place is making them nervous about the public saftety
One man shot in Algiers, one fake cop arrested elsewhere.
if someone especially you gets hurt or robbed there its their ass.
have a good time....and if you can make it back sometime during football season you'll see another kind of party
don't u know it's illegal to have fun past 8pm there? /scarcasm govt is afraid it will be overthrown by angry mobs + brassbands
I think some of the Twilight stars are there... maybe Janet Jackson too.
Mostly so people don't drive through the Quarter.
Pineville, LA, USA
That's exactly why I rarely make the drive to NO and when I do, I handle my business and leave. :(
, its part of BP's new plan to scare off the oil with authority figures.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
It's possible they want to dissuade a civil disturbance. Having insufficient data, that's all I can think of.
There's a new police chief in town. Could be "new police chief syndrome".
Maybe they're leftovers from the G20 in Toronto?
you should have seen Toronto last weekend for the G20!
dnt act like u dnt knw y.....just n case yall cnt handle da xcitmnt!
i don't know what good luck have fun friends
comedy, literacy, originality
maybe they're going to start bottom of map US, to work their way up. South to north sweep?ok Admit Odd.I.am. not Will.i.am
Eat some gumbo and beignets for me while you're there!
....If you find out what happened Lavar, please post so we can know too! Thanks! Viki B
When you combine heat, over 100k people and open container laws you get a police presence. At least you get great food too!
