A veteran New Orleans police officer already facing a domestic battery charge is now accused of raping a woman June 30 after arresting her at gunpoint and taking her away in his squad car to a warehouse off Tchoupitoulas Street.

  1. Louisiana needs to enact legislation to address how domestic violence is handled when police officers are involved. Why was this man still working when he had attacked his wife months ago? Why wasn't he suspended without pay until the investigation was completed? Mostly, why was this man still allowed to carry a gun? This guy had all the necessary weapons and control to pull off a kidnapping and rape. His department should come under fire for enabling him to act dangerously, knowing his background. If you dangle a drug before the face of an addict, they will likely take the drug. If you give a weapon, cuff restraints and a badge to a batterer, he will use them to support his narcisistic behavior.
