In a Facebook video posted on Monday night, an NOPD officer is seen holding a man down with his knee, taser in hand, on the corner of Frenchmen and Chartres — a hotspot for outdoor brass band sets. 


Despite stubbornly high crime rates, the New Orleans Police Department is getting high marks from residents. The New Orleans Crime Coalition survey shows 64 percent of residents are satisfied with department efforts.
