Demands center on allegations of racial profiling by the NOPD
The president of the New Orleans branch of the NAACP says the organization will soon present a list of demands to Mayor Mitch Landrieu, including one calling for immediate disciplinary action against any supervisor who might suggest that racial profiling be used by police officers.
Danatus King, a guest on the Denny Schaffer Show Tuesday, says the organization is also calling on the city to abandon its efforts to rescind the NOPD consent decree with the Justice Department.
And King believes a lawsuit over racial profiling is "imminent".
Talk of a possible lawsuit and the list of demands comes after the Landrieu administration and the NAACP held separate community meetings Monday night to discuss alllegations of racial profiling by the NOPD.
King said he decided not to attend the mayor's meeting because the agenda was different from what the NAACP had requested.
"He unilaterally scheduled the meeting, and it was an agenda that was totally different from what we had talked about," King said.
