BR Union of Police: Serious doubts about City Hall supporting BRPD


“Activist” Arthur “Silky Slim” Reed didn’t help Mayor Broome’s relationship with BRPD much.  His remarks that Gavin Long brought “justice” to BR by killing 3 cops, and wounding 3 more didn’t sit well with the rank and file cops, or their union.  Knowing that he was appointed to a special advisory board on police matters by the mayor, and was given a contract to be a “street counselor” in the BRAVE program made it even worse.  Union President Bryan Taylor minced no words about Silky or The Mayor on AM Baton Rouge.
