Well, it’s been about 9 months since I first posted about Shreveport mayor Cedric Glover’s infamous “your rights are suspended” comments. The situation was covered by KTBS channel 3 when Cedric Glover tried to say his comments were “left to interpretation” – even though the full context of the audio and a transcript were posted. I even posted the police car video as proof of exactly what happened. Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk Magazine, KTBS, and even Moon Griffon also covered the story.
It’s taken on a life of it’s own. Just this week, the Shreveport Times ran a letter to the editor concerning the story. Much of the website traffic generated is now coming in from email links. That means that it is beyond the blogosphere and will now circulate indefinitely.
The cool thing is that as of right now, this site ranks #1 in Google for the search term “cedric glover” – that is awesome and just goes to prove that relevant content is king. It ranks #5 for if you search for “shreveport mayor”
Any candidate running in the 2010 Shreveport Mayoral race should just simply play sound bites of “your rights are suspended” over and over. I will gladly provide the audio with no restrictions – and I’m quite sure Robert Baillio would have no problem as well.
Is this bad publicity for Shreveport? Some would say so, but I would suggest it actually bringing to light some of the bad policies in place at the core of Shreveport’s government. Again, I would rather have the information out in the open where citizens can make informed decisions.
