Louisiana: the We Hate N*****s State

This is hardly surprising, but last weekend some Louisiana cops repeatedly tased and pepper-sprayed two people, amid a tirade of profanity and N-bombs.

Why do we know about it? The recipients of the abuse were two actors on Oliver Stone's production of an anti-Bush movie, and the brutality occurred in front of a crowd at the film's wrap party. As reported by TMZ:
Local station KTBS reports and TMZ sources say [Jeffrey] Wright, who plays Colin Powell, was repeatedly tasered and pepper sprayed as he lay prone on his stomach in the street. We know witnesses heard the officers using extremely foul language, including the "N" word, directed at Wright.

Our sources say [Josh] Brolin was observed by witnesses attempting to make peace and standing still as he was repeatedly sprayed in the eyes by cops.
As much as I dislike pigs generally, the ones in the South really take it to another level. How you like those tax incentives now, Hollywood?
