Candid Interview with Former Louisiana Cop on No-Knock Raids
Last week, we traveled to Crowley, Louisiana to look deeper into the Theresa Richard story, who has been arrested twice in six months for recording cops in public, where we came across a former Crowley cop who granted us a very candid interview about how the department was conducting no-knock raids several times a week, finding very little drugs, but generating plenty of federal grants because of the raids.
I will be reporting more on that trip in the upcoming week, but I wanted to post the interview with Johnny Courville now because he provided good insight into police culture in general, not just in small-town Louisiana.
The culture is corrupt, but we knew that. But if we can give a voice to those cops who realize it’s corrupt, then maybe we can begin to change that culture.
