Candid Interview with Former Louisiana Cop on No-Knock Raids

Last week, we traveled to Crowley, Louisiana to look deeper into the Theresa Richard story, who has  been arrested [__twice in six months__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/05/29/louisiana-police-arrest-pinac-reader-video-recording-public/) for [__recording cops in public,__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2013/12/06/louisiana-cops-arrest-woman-recording-inside-police-station-seize-camera-evidence/) where we came across a former Crowley cop who granted us a very candid interview about how the department was conducting no-knock raids several times a week, finding very little drugs, but generating plenty of federal grants because of the raids.

I will be reporting more on that trip in the upcoming week, but I wanted to post the interview with Johnny Courville now because he provided good insight into police culture in general, not just in small-town Louisiana.

The culture is corrupt, but we knew that. But if we can give a voice to those cops who realize it’s corrupt, then maybe we can begin to change that culture.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
