I was cleaning out my email inbox and I came across this message from July 24, 2012 where the Office of the Mayor engages in much happy talk about the city’s consent decree with the feds agreeing to overhaul the woeful New Orleans Police Department:

consent decree

Now, of course, Landrieu is trying to weasel out of this agreement. I just wanted to remind people that the mayor actually was quite pleased with the decree back when he signed it.
