Today in NOLA: 5.27.15


Today, check out the myriad of movies and music in the city. Indywood presents Miami Connection and Irma Thomas rocks YLC Wednesdays at the Square.  Then later this evening, catch New Orleans’ own bands, Treme Brass Band and Tin Men. On this day in history, Henry Shreve and his men began the creation of Shreveport (1836), and two regiments of former slaves freed by the Emancipation Proclamation made six unsuccessful charges on the Confederate fortifications at Port Hudson, LA (1863). But now for more on today:


NOPD: Hip to be Square


It takes the LA (that's Los Angeles, not Louisiana) Times to tell us about a major shift in NOPD policy. Apparently, in the 6th Preinct's squad room, there is a picture of a giant red square. Writer, Richard Fausset, reports that the square symbolizes the NOPD's new policy of "not arresting squares" or minor offenders. Good job to Fausset, but, hey, what does that mean? Can we pee on the street?
