America’s Toughest Cop is Back with a Challenge
Last year in this space, I posted a story about St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Lt. Clay Higgins, of Louisiana (The Greatest Crimestoppers Video Ever). I predicted at the time that Lt. Higgins was well on his way to becoming famous because of the way he looks, the way he talks, and more importantly, what his message is.
Lt. Higgins delivers the weekly Crimestoppers report for local viewers in Lebeau, Louisiana, but folks from all over the world have gone to YouTube for a look at a guy some have called "R. Lee Ermy's calmer son."
They seem to be having a problem with gang activity in Lt. Higgins area, and as you may have already guessed, he's not taking the problem lying down:
It may be surprising (maybe not), but the comments section on this video is almost universally supportive of the efforts of Higgins, the officers backing him up, and the town leaders standing in unison with him.
If you like the video above, here are a couple more of Lt. Higgins greatest hits:
Just like in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, if you have information that can help solve a crime, you can call Rockford Crimestoppers at (815) 963-7867, or toll-free at 1-888-769-STOP.
Look at me when I'm talking to you, son.
