Brickbat: Sounds Like a Threat


Andrey Burmakin /

In Louisiana, law enforcement officers are in the habit of arresting those who say they are going to file a complaint against them. The charge they use is intimidation of a public official, a felony carrying up to five years in prison. Two different federal judges have found that law unconstitutional. But state Attorney General Jeff Landry defended the law in both cases and has appealed one of the cases to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
