Seems to fun never stops in New Orleans. Currently a federal court is investigating Parish Prison (city jail) and deciding whether to put it into receivership. The City is balking at the cost it would incure. Meanwhile, a 4-yr-old video shows appalling conditions almost unimaginable–inmates shooting up heroin, playing with loaded gun, drinking beer–all while supposedly being guarded. The Southern Poverty Law Center and the Dept. of Justice have brought a class-action lawsuit against the sheriff. <drumroll> The City says the sheriff’s actions shouldn’t cost N.O. in the consent decree. Right.
