Tonight on the SCOOT show…Bob Mitchell is sitting in. As always—lots of interesting topics: Do you use Ambien or any other sleep med to doze off at night? Did you suffer any side effects like memory loss? A judge ruled that former federal prosecutor Sal Perricone may no longer practice law in federal court in Baton Rouge, because of his infamous on line comments. Perricone appealed the ban, saying he can't remember his infamous online comments, partly because he was taking the sleeping-aid drug Ambien. Does Sal Perricone have a case…or should he be held accountable for his actions, no matter what the circumstances? If you were negligent or did something illegal while taking Ambien or any other drug, would you company give you a pass? PLUS: What would it take for you to become a member of the New Orleans Police department? Why do you think New Orleans has such a hard time recruiting people to join the NOPD? Do you think cops have an easy job? Do you think police officers have the same respect now as compared when you were growing up?

Big bomb belt dollar in progress but why making it by -- they'll. Have. You know that attitude that it. I found -- I've found out that four police officers. They're damned if they do their damned if they don't you know if if they tried to break up -- in the try to break up. Up fighters something. And they use too much force then they get accused of using excessive force of they don't use enough force and the person gets away are harmed someone else than they didn't do enough so.

Yes and I heard about the polian that you with the boat to take refuge to New Orleans and -- -- did your living room right it was a little. Of living. He. Mine -- mound again Ambien and the last four years of life. And she just like you -- she would take it. And then she would like you know go to sleep like fifteen minutes -- one night don't commotion here apartment complex. And you know the next decade calendar about it actually see it coming to live enrollment and we we released into -- -- not a windows look at what's going on. And should and believe me she thought outline. Well too bluntly about a couple months later we saw being -- On the man. He talked about how he took it and be -- it went to sleep and hotel room one night. Didn't he will company and I went out and piles of Internet. And he called the ambience of that Iraq. Believe me. Yeah it it it you know I don't take it anymore but you know little wolf. And it can make you -- to make the eight to. Yeah and -- fortunately. You know the sad part is she stopped taking it. She she had no experience which he woke up been. And she had different clothes on the and -- well yeah. I thought I would like to but look she stopped. That because of and then a couple of months later he died and I think it's because she she could deplete the. I let's -- my wife to exit and has no problems with the Devoe zero. The only -- right. -- that the problem with it's so strong you know so. But it you know there are so many stories of people doing things. Like getting getting in a car and -- and going someplace and picking up fast food and coming back home and don't you remember taking the trip. Yeah it's only everyone could like went 101000 -- and Internet after taking it that would be a good thing. But of course if you do something illegal. Like us -- Puerto defeatism and illegal you can't blame it on the Ambien use. -- in the palace. Good. Defense.

Weekday morning six to ten it's a good day to get started. On a WW I'll get to the -- that once likened it quick text message here. Bob in my opinion I would have to have zero common sense to be a police officer. In the new world were asking the question what would it take for use the become a police officer in New Orleans are our cup anywhere. And we're looking for people that I had or know someone who's had an ambient experience of doubled Bryan Bryan Howard you. I don't dwell on. Of Robin Williams now calls -- a huge fan of -- outlook and will stay and it goes something like that he didn't like bicentennial male I'm favorite. Are something that didn't really like it is but it. In when apparently come back to TV you were a year ago com -- I believe that the -- she called the angry one Mike. Greatly anarchic. And review to upgrade magazine's content now found out about this show. And it treat me a little bit -- in the European TP. Kate and now on the intact and we never known it. And I'll look back and Brad -- and imperial. Any -- -- -- -- its financial situation and coming he's basically in the going to be basically says -- -- at -- home in you. In the Villa and that book Alley and talk about you know how. He -- he beat him steady paycheck. And he called inaudible. Pretty much being blue period to divorces. And I read an article this morning it just came out apparently someone -- with them. He was talking about. How the oil money problems. He had lost 38 million dollar little -- English he's. To get -- or attending them imagine that much money. Well and the thing about it is -- California. If you do if you -- and years and whatever reason and opened the -- you -- -- -- -- It now or I'm never stopped. So he would basically be able through and -- show ended they canceled the one yeah I'm sure a lot to do that it. And that probably it is was saying that the pay -- he didn't wanna deal could could keep it keep up at all he probably gonna go to jail. -- -- A lot of she's got about three movies in the can that haven't come out yet. Price specifically the -- politics specifically. Name -- -- to some media more to do. I hated Williams really did not like doing sequels and that's just what is spending. And he would basically forced to take all the job needed more to do so funny and not the content killed and so yeah I mean nipple bit. And it it really celebrity's spyware program. They get a 130 mail article he merely with words. I mean he's paying out that -- an exorbitant monthly trading it. And he couldn't keep up on the EU city was 63 years old. You know what happened to a lot of people would show business or ticket today they excel become an irrelevant you know. You really haven't heard much from you know. Call for a while I mean part of that Pete beach. And I think you know when people go bankrupt or whatever Hollywood now and somebody -- Are very successful radio host that he would he was saying. You know it's like it's like that it's like a slap in the face and democratic our offense change. When you're the star -- And you go bankrupt. And it is. But I'll wrap everything up -- It is and it really is. That the family court can be that if somebody could not think that the big contributor. -- think he went -- and ain't a monopoly with a needle. -- a lot of mistakes but it. Thank and I think you know he knew he couldn't keep continue paying your bills and he gets -- themselves. That's a built -- go to analysis by Brian anything goes to Atlanta to show. About the police opposite a couple of retired police saw there was some problem and it's 35 plus years on the yeah. -- just retired not too long ago. A couple of years. Number and the circuit within a single come talk to these people become even Eddie. He doesn't know what he's going you're an idiot and I'm glad they got out naked. He think that's the main reason -- an obedient one they can hire people just. It all a a lot of times I look at a display. I know nothing about surplus on a melting them up the inside work until the police department. But here's why -- that if I wanted to be a police officer I think more on the first things I would do is I'm sure. Well let me let me back up I'm sure you don't -- I wanna be a police officer I'm sure there's someone you know on the force and you talk to them and then maybe you decide. So I would have to imagine if you decide you want the B a police officer and you start talking to a lot of people on the ports are different people that you know on the force. And none of them had anything good to say about it you can move someplace else. I have a lot of these retired police opposite that I spoken to political ads in a couple of years they tell -- all the same kind of terrible -- polluted. The paid not a -- debate it could be elk away. -- at the mean I think and -- they called it an honor I mean why would he could be a target OP -- run. When you can -- Somewhere named bill and even no matter. We'll look I've got to die on the next month calling from Georgia he's a former it'll -- -- booed at some scoop from him. Thank you Brian all right -- is that Anthony. -- I hear it or not you you were of -- member of the New Orleans Police Department how long ago. I was out of a member of the fifteen year I left the police department on the wall and and 2001. OK so why do you think LPD is having such a rough time. Hiring new officers and keeping them. Well first of all that I hired them. Wages if not competitive. I mean like right now I'm actually the Lebanon. Montgomery Alabama in the -- that he like -- -- -- police say is Morgan -- low. And I'm talking about a city a much smaller scale. Left crying everything else. Build opposite of it now with -- vehicles which is what now would ultimately it will be a bit ago -- go and get to ward Jeanne good mileage you'll using your gas. It in the police in addition to a -- And you know I I personally among these people that. I'd like the idea. Of police taking cars home because that way. I know on my daughter. We we live in saint Tammany parish in their a couple of police officers -- live in her subdivision. And it gives you a certain sense of of a comfort. And security does know that those police cars -- there. It would -- -- -- decline write me if I'm a criminal and I know they have believable glib and around here that government in the neighborhood. -- and every -- product boy he'd been. Oddly rigid religion and the police chief elections have been horrible. Hello yeah I'm listening. It's and horrible spot and Richard Pennington. It's really been is that really selection police chase in politics involved when an American and it. Who we want to beat the police chief. Not a problem. That is is they had. Is that the police chief -- is effective they don't have. Enough money to hire who they need to Holler. Well coming. If you're given perfectly salary which is what tended to I don't know what it was as in the in the third period when he was just so much -- And he's been on board those sensitive. But I. You know it's about this great country can -- -- they -- -- really wanna bring -- to an opportunity came with a sixty -- What about the salaries for the rank and file.

It got to let the -- -- that most -- -- upon decision -- That the base -- and everything the police opposite end. If you really badly. Outplayed this. Even with the problem of Dubai police and what if any would steal trade. At least 90% of the political duplicate it but we will be -- Is is. NL lead the let's say more dangerous than let's say saint Tammany parish. Or wherever and parish. I wouldn't say because if one of the things -- an Olympic being with the department is. You can count on you'll probably. Backing you that's one thing that was great for. You know and Edgar could you get an injury and you -- off and I mean they're coming out that would work people you'd have a new. -- police. Open.

That if we're hearing we're hearing two entirely different stores we're hearing one where the young man was trying to. Get the gun from the police officer and that's really gut shot. And the other side says he was walking on the street with the -- up in the air and was gunned down -- mean. Those are those are two diametrically opposed stories and I hope I hope that week. Have some type of a video papers -- of going to show exactly what happen. And those cute story full Paula. And one thing that people have to understand is that. Like them. When.

Take a break I'm Bob Mitchell in -- on WWL AM implement dot Bobbitt told. Back in upper scotus go to chart in basic -- -- -- I have can be on her radio -- RT you know Abraham and experience. I've had several -- nightmares. From what I can't let territory -- how important -- leaders in the worst place in the world. And it put me on Ambien and you -- -- severe sleep did disorders. One time it's seven load of laundry and it no matter no uniforms later privilege that. Once well Democrat was there boxer shorts in the order just -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It is. An Ambien and country needs children in -- nightmare. Army which. -- been -- an apple or no there. Did it is something else and but it doesn't have that effect on everybody. And -- teetering on -- that even worse. I mean he cannot really messes you -- Mean. What does it do just make you just Paisley. I -- that -- -- -- that magnifies the -- -- -- at the may be to some Ambien and left before section in a while. -- Well I think we've lost to -- If you need to call back OK let's go let's go to Mike in Slidell or you might. -- good. Thank for him call. Com partner at ambient look I thought I would call for. Another. Topic or -- show possibly. Thought. Is these people. Take chanting. Thank you can't fix what is that. The. Smoke volcanic reduction. By that that's caused some side effects to. Are a lot. I had people Trace of me virtualized they'll want to kill me. I was standing. In line.

That -- put all of this and that movement and it is gonna help. I'm listening to -- -- probably try to make sensible to Shane. One look at the bullet and then and I can help. I'll bet I'm actually a police officer because. They have come out with a bit of both the -- -- out and -- pull it. You know fruit. You let -- Well the police department. And I'd bet that -- it will. Be blacked out on. I'm Bob. If it wanted to step forward pop out there not there I think you should -- -- -- -- what you need. The important -- you act by the opening day. Does that make it open and people. You know yeah why -- wouldn't -- here that Bernard. Well I believe that the the current police chief foe wants to police levels are that he did go rise of through the ranks of the -- went to. To Nashville. As police chief and came back. I can't even in the police say either -- -- external. I didn't vote that the paperwork while they're -- they're billing. But I believe he was a police officer abrupt portrait became a bit. It was a police solve the before he came police chief. And then in the and in good -- -- -- but it may -- And what about the -- sport but now it was more unity. Just like in the Manila yeah if you don't -- -- coming in in the note there are. Up. Well I'm quite sure from humble -- -- remember them up above our current police chief serpent I think he comic came up through the ranks of what I'm trying to say. So I think he was he did he he did have. Experience as -- police probably did come up through the ranks and then finally be became qualified. To go to natural -- police chief and then he came back here. I think that's correct. Rick where where you where you're Robin Williams -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah all of it read about the big day. And we get. One out walk sit and look at it. Didn't beat them than me. On. And all that I don't remember that. What is wanted on. It was I agree with Rick I appreciate your -- and okay. -- Thank you so much to 601 late 7866.
