The HBO documentary Katrina Babies highlights how childhood trauma can manifest as violence. Brooke Thorington talks to a psychiatrist about it.
Cut 1 (34) “…I’m Brooke Thorington.”
Citizens have begun an effort to recall New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, but can they succeed in cutting her term in office short? Kevin Gallagher reports…:
Cut 2 (31) “….I’m Kevin Gallagher.”
LSU fans will have to wait a few more days to find out who will start at quarterback when the Tigers face Florida State in the Superdome Sunday. Kevin Gallagher has that story…:
Cut 3 (32) “…I’m Kevin Gallagher.”
The HBO Documentary Katrina Babies tells the story of how the trauma children experienced was never addressed and its relationship to the uptick in crime. LSU Health New Orleans Professor of Psychiatry Dr. Rahn Bailey says tragic events like hurricanes and the pandemic can affect children later in life, and it’s often ignored.
Cut 4 (07) “…our fears.”
Bailey says the common response from children, teens, and even adults after traumatic events are “I’m good,” or “I’m alright.” He says it’s only when you dig and ask that second or third question that you’re able to get that individual to possibly open up.
Cut 5 (06) “…emotional difficulty.”
In the absence of discipline, safety, security, and a home life where children can be children, Bailey says childhood trauma is later visible when they act out even as adults.
Cut 6 (10) “…reckoning on us.”
Bailey says to seek professional help if you believe your child or someone you know is showing signs of trouble. He says proper mental health does work.
New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell is now the subject of a recall petition; filed last week with the Secretary of State’s office. To get a recall on a ballot, organizers will need to collect legitimate signatures from 20-percent of Orleans Parish registered voters within six months; about 53-thousand people. UNO political science professor Ed Chernevak says that could be pretty difficult…:
Cut 7 (10) “…not registered voters.”
Historically in Louisiana, recall petitions have met with little success. Chervenak says he gives the effort to recall Mayor Cantrell about a 3-out-of-5 chance of success. He says citizen morale in the Crescent City HAS been very low…:
Cut 8 (10) “…how successful they can be?”
Often a recall effort can serve as a wake-up call to a public official; triggering a change in policy or behavior. Does Chervernak think that could happen with Mayor Cantrell…?
Cut 9 (09) “…path that she’s on.”
Petitioners have six months to collect the 53-thousand signatures needed to put a recall on a New Orleans ballot. They’ll also need a few thousand extras, to offset any disqualified names.
Monroe police officers were called out to Carroll High and the middle school yesterday morning because two 14 years old students had handguns in their possession. Sargent Mike Fendall says school resource officers reacted quickly to ensure everyone was safe.
Cut 10 (12) “…shortly thereafter.”
Fendall says luckily the school’s resource officers weren’t alone in reporting this incident to Monroe Law Enforcement
Cut 11 (07) “…both cases.”
The reasoning behind both incidents is unknown, however, no one was harmed. Fendall says they are looking to see how the teens got the guns…
Cut 12 (11) “..at this time.”
Up until this week, the tropics have been pretty calm but now there are at least three disturbances the forecasters are watching. And while none pose an immediate threat to Louisiana, state climatologist Barry Keim says after two very active seasons back-to-back, this season feels a bit off, especially for late August.
Cut 13 (10) “…this point.”
Keim says traditionally this is the time of year when we see the major storms in the Atlantic and hopefully, we’ll remain fortunate and escape any major activity in the gulf for the next six weeks…
Cut 14 (10) “…strong ones.”
With Labor Day coming up many people have plans for the three-day weekend and Keim says so far so good tropics-wise.
Cut 15 (07) “…plans.”
LSU Coach Brian Kelly has named a starting quarterback, but he’s not releasing the information publicly. Kelly wants to keep Florida State guessing, will they see Jayden Daniels or Garrett Nussmeier. The first-year coach says there’s not much difference between the two, so he looks at as 1A and 1B and not first string and second string…
Cut 16 (16) ” ….itself”
As far as other positions on offense, Kelly expects seven to eight receivers to play and there’s a lot of versatility…
Cut 17 (25) “..keep guys fresh”
Kelly has announced his starting offensive line, the tackles are Will Campbell and Cam Wire, guards Miles Frazier and Anthony Bradford and the center is Garrett Dellinger…
Cut 18 (18)“…his technique”
It’s cutdown day in the NFL as all 32 teams have to get their active roster down to 53 by 3 PM central time. Coach Dennis Allen it’s one of the toughest days of the season…
Cut 19 (19) “…tough business part”
Looks like rookie tackle Trevor Penning will start the season on injured reserve. Allen says Penning is expected to miss several weeks.
Cut 20 (12) “ …toe injury”
