Police Horse Poppin’ on Bourbon Street: Video

Dip, baby, dip / slide and move your hips
—Glen David Andrews, Lil’ Rascals Brass Band’s “Knock with Me, Rock with Me”

The latest local video making the viral rounds on social media? A mounted crowd-control police officer (a regular sight in the French Quarter) showing off his horse-riding skills by commanding his steed to shake, side-step, and back it up (not a regular sight in the French Quarter) to the sounds of TBC Brass Band at their usual spot at the foot of Bourbon Street.

Just watch…

    Of course, some troll out there is bound to look at this and say, “no wonder the crime is so bad. the cops are dancing instead of paying attention and fighting crime.” My hope, though, is that this kind of image can spread the message that our police force is present and visible on Bourbon Street and other hot spots around the city and that the NOPD is active, involved, and just as interested in facilitating the party as they are keeping it safe and enjoyable for everyone involved.
