Life of a Bossier City Police Officer: Scratched, Hit, Bit, Cursed and Fired

This is a true story.

I always wanted to use this line, ‘the names have been changed to protect the innocent’ so we’ll call our policeman Officer John Doe.

Last week Officer Doe’s boss gave him a pink slip telling him we don’t need him anymore because we can’t afford him.

This week the officer was

  • Scratched
  • Hit
  • Bit
  • Pepper Sprayed
  • Cursed
  • Almost hit by a car

Oh, and he helped put a child pornographer out of business.

Think the politicians need to find a better way? Think you can find a few minutes today to make your presence known to them? Think you can let the policemen and firemen know that they are appreciated and that you will back them up?

City Council Meeting

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

3:00pm - 5:00pm

620 Benton Rd


  1. People can talk about supporting the police all day long, today we'll find out how many really do.

  2. That's exactly how I feel too! I will be there!
    Jim you did forget the best part of the officer's week. Being told by his supervisors not to attend the meeting or speak out about the situation.

  3. You're right, muzzled too. Sad commentary.

  4. I wouldn't want them there either, I would be forced to look at them.

    Recall Lo Walker

  6. Lo Walker should be recalled and a full audit of the books by an independent agent should be done to determine where all the money has gone. Someone suggested this yesterday and I agree totally.

    Also, is bossier city equipment being used to enhance property owned by any of our so called leaders.

  7. This is exactly how it is for the life of a Bossier City Police Officer.

    My husband is one of those officers on the list and just two days ago he came home from his shift muddy and with a bloody hand. He had pulled someone over and found them with a warrant. When he approached the guy about the warrant, the guy ran. My husband ran after him and when he was able to get to the guy, the guy fought him and was resisting. My husband had to call for back up as he risked his own safety to get a criminal off of the streets. He is holding his head up everyday that he puts his uniform on and continuing to do his job, despite what the mayor has done to him with the lack of appreciation.
