Troopers scold police chief for pulling people over http://www.wbrz.com/news/troopers-scold-police-chief-for-pulling-people-over/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/troopers-scold-police-chief-for-pulling-people-over/ Thats Just Wrong Wed, 9 Feb 2011 10:13:43 AM Russell Jones Troopers scold police chief for pulling people over

CROWLEY – Melissa Guerrero was driving in Acadia Parish the day after Thanksgiving when she saw blue lights in her back mirror and pulled over.  But the vehicle with the lights, an unmarked white SUV, just kept going.

So she followed it, calling 911 and telling dispatchers what she saw during the next 30 minutes.

“We almost wrecked ‘cause we were scared, we thought it was a cop,” she said in the 911 recording, “And then he’s just pulling these people over and then just takes off… He's just crazy. I don't know what he's doing but that is just crazy.”

Louisiana State Police troopers pulled over the SUV and discovered the driver was Addis Police Chief Ricky Anderson, who was 70 miles from Addis and well outside his jurisdiction.

A dashboard camera recorded Anderson’s explanation to the troopers.

“There was a vehicle in and out at 90 miles an hour and I flashed my blue lights at him to slow him down,” Anderson told them.

He explained he was on his way home after visiting family in Lake Charles, and had turned his lights on to slow down other drivers he thought were going too fast.

“I wasn't stopping him, all I did was flash my lights on and off to let him know there was a cop behind him, and if he wouldn't slow down, I was calling you,” he told the troopers in the recording.

Anderson also admitted that he was going over the speed limit as well, doing about 80 miles per hour and moving people over from the left passing lane.

“He just pulled another person with the lights,” Guerrero said in her 911 call.

“He just pulled another one over?” asked the dispatcher,

“Yeah, but he's moving pretty fast and they can move to the right…they think it’s an emergency,” Guerror said.

Troopers scolded Anderson for his actions after stopping him, telling him he overstepped his authority.

“You need to call us,” the trooper said.

“And I would have but he slowed down,” said Anderson.

“You shouldn’t do that,” said the trooper.

When asked to comment about his actions, Anderson told News 2 that the story was “bogus” and hinted he may withhold information and developments about an unsolved murder from last summer if the story was aired.

Troopers advised Guerrero to file a complaint with the Attorney General’s office over the incident.

A Medicaid patient is caught in a “Catch 22” over his medication.

He says his doctor has a blanket policy of not prescribing certain drugs. He's tried to change doctors, but that's where the problem lies.

The patient is an ex-convict with a gripe you may not have sympathy for. New 2’s lets you decide if that's just wrong.

Smoking treated incense produces, the same high as marijuana and is completely legal.

But, the incense contains the same psycho-active ingredient as the real thing.

Authorities know about it but are powerless to prosecute, and that's just wrong.

After this year, getting to the International Space Station means hitching a ride on a Russian rocket.

When the U.S. shuttle fleet is retired at the end of the year, Russian rockets will be the only ones flying into outer space.

It could have an impact on jobs from Louisiana to the Kennedy Space Center.

One man from Zachary says, “That's just wrong.”

Sex offenders living in subsidized housing on tax payer's dime http://www.wbrz.com/news/sex-offenders-living-in-subsidized-housing-on-tax-payers-dime/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/sex-offenders-living-in-subsidized-housing-on-tax-payers-dime/ Thats Just Wrong Thu, 24 Sep 2009 9:04:34 PM Michael Marsh Sex offenders living in subsidized housing on tax payer's dime

News 2 has found a loop-hole in the federal law banning sex offenders from living in subsidized housing that you pay for.

It's because of the Federal Privacy Law.  If sex offenders, their spouses, or anyone else lies on their application about being in a household for Section 8 housing, the East Baton Rouge Parish Housing Authority and the public have a hard time finding out. 

The housing authority researches names on the State Sex Offender Registry to see what addresses are used by offenders.  If they find an offender living in a Section 8 property, they ask the offender to leave.  The problem is that Section 8 housing addresses are kept secret from the public because of the Federal Privacy Law. The law was passed to protect families from the stigma of subsidized housing.

The News 2 investigation found one offender, Daytrend Moses, who was convicted of rape and living in a Section 8 apartment. He's now back in prison. The housing authority cannot confirm our finding because of the privacy law.

Because the list of Section 8 housing is secret, there is no way the public can find out if an offender is living in subsidized housing at their expense.  The State Sex Offender Registry lists addresses but not the nature of the properties.
