Big Easy Come; Big Easy Go : Serpas Goes Back Where He Came From

Nashville police chief ,Ronal Serpas, a former high-ranking NOPD officer who now heads the police department in Nashville, Tenn., the next superintendent of the New Orleans Police Department.  Serpas came toNashville five years ago. He decentralized the command structure and disbanded the skilled homocide unit. It has recently come to light that the Nashville police departments improvements may in fact be due to an administrative trick of marking unsolved cases as administrativly closed.

Was this how things were done in crime riddled New Orleans at the time of Serpas' departure for Nashville five years ago? Is New Orleans getting a "pig in a poke" with Serpas? Only time will tell. One thing is for sure. Nashville reporters may not find as colorful a replacement to write about. Serpas' sons repeted DUI violations were all that talk for months. But then again, DUI's must be very common in the Big Easy.

What do you think?
