Baton Rouge Louisiana News
Baton Rouge is a vibrant city! Here is some of the latest news:
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana State Police has launched an internal investigation after multiple cadets were injured during tactical training last week.
A state police spokesperson confirmed Monday afternoon that the agency has temporarily halted tactics training while the incident is investigated further. While LSP admits minor injuries are not uncommon during that portion of training, it says the injuries this time around were enough to "raise concern."
You can read the full statement from Louisiana State Police below.
“The Louisiana State Police has initiated an administrative investigation with regards to physical injuries sustained by several State Police cadets during last week’s defensive tactics (DT) training. DT is a highly physical training bloc consisting of handcuffing, use of the expandable baton, pressure points, physical strikes, blocking and grappling techniques. Although injuries are not uncommon during this training phase, the injuries reported last week were enough to raise our concern. This prompted an immediate review by the senior command staff. Based on information learned during the initial review, defensive tactics training has been temporarily suspended and Internal Affairs has been tasked with conducting an investigation. In the interim, Cadet Class 99 will continue with other training activities.”
BATON ROUGE - Governor John Bel Edwards' campaign released new information Monday from polling that they've been doing that show the incumbent governor easily sailing to victory in the runoff against Baton Rouge Businessman Eddie Rispone on Nov. 16.
However, those who are watching the election said there are plenty of factors at play here, and the road to victory may not be so easy.
"If he has to run this without Washington as with Mary Landrieu, remember they gave up on her, packed their bags and went back," Pollster Bernie Pinsonat said. "If that happens to John Bel Edwards, remember he had an abortion vote that upset democrats in Washington, so are they going to flood into the state and save a democrat? Without their help it will be insurmountable."
Edwards has touted his successes over the past four years as governor as a reason why he should be re-elected.
"We turned a two billion-dollar deficit into a surplus," Edwards said on election night. "I can say 450,000 have health insurance through Medicaid expansion. I'm happy to remind you we gave teachers their first pay raise."
Those watching the election said with the climate in our state, beating Washington D.C. forces may not be easy.
"He ran on this, 'I inherited a budget deficit,'" Radio host Moon Griffon said. "He voted on six of eight of Bobby Jindal's budgets. That's not an inheritance. Inheritance is when my aunt died, I got $25,000. My truck note and a house note I signed for it. He voted for six of the eight budgets. If there was a budget deficit, he voted for it. What happens is he's been putting stuff out there and people are starting to see it. Can he win? Absolutely. Anything can happen in five weeks."
Rispone believes a vote for him instead of a career politician will move the state forward. Rispone spent Monday working the phones and fundraising. As money pours in from out of state, funding should not be a problem for him.
Throughout the election, the Edwards campaign has claimed Rispone is "phony." They say he's hired foreign workers instead of people in Louisiana. Rispone claims he won't change Medicaid expansion, but Edwards said there's no certainty on that which could leave thousands without health insurance.
"You hit the reset button," LSU Professor Bob Mann said. "You're only running against one republican in the state but are running against the entire establishment in the state. A majority of people voted against you."
BATON ROUGE - City-Parish Chief Administrative Officer Darryl Gissel says city hall has been inundated with calls and emails after the voters approved the new City of St. George.
"People are saying, can we annex ourselves into the city. This isn't what we want. They are concerned about what will happen. Again the mayor is saying just stay calm, we're still the same city we were on Friday."
On election night, Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome said the city was preparing for a financial hit.
"I did instruct my team to prepare two budgets, a continuation budget, and one with a 20-percent cut. We will certainly revisit those issues in the days to come," Mayor Broome said.
Even though the city-parish expects to operate with less, the CAO doesn't see any lay-offs right now.
"We're trying to ensure city workers that there's nothing imminent that's going to happen," Gissel said.
The mayor-president and St. George leaders will meet on Friday and discuss the best way to move forward.
Governor John Bel Edwards will also meet with St. George backers about appointing an interim mayor and city council for the new city.
