8-12 Scoot Show Bob Mitchell, 10pm Ambien

Aug 13, 2014|

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?

Point seven religion of people but it -- have had Ambien experiences. And would what would it take for you to become a member of the New Orleans Police Department or any police department. Do you think that police just have an impossible job I'm Bob Mitchell and dispute -- WW. If that -- of course that was. Mrs. doubtfire. Robin Williams and were kind of honoring Robin Williams the night and taking your calls on your favorite. Robin Williams -- the taller or shorter interview whatever but don't Erik -- thanks for calling WW well tonight are you. -- -- -- Yeah there we go -- right our. And a CU or an attorney for of the New Orleans Police Department. Obama certainly. It's okay. Don't want and a former white in the one does it -- -- typical professional TD to hire. -- Well I think the problem they're -- is pretty much well publicized. And ten person that. Or look at on the important points out just certainly. Do. Research. On the topic and it worked for me and -- -- seated problems here. Think they have to take off and that when that -- -- salaries. I think that what would ultimately. Make citizen does it bait -- they look at that just hours of the neighboring. Areas in ranger series -- a mystery that has -- southern region and it realize that they can make more money. Be treated better be better equipped and better trained and. I think as a what you look like that it's pretty simple -- -- So what is it going to take is that is that the mayor is that the police treat this the City Council what needs to give. The the mayor and the police treat more money. -- -- yeah it's it's. -- that more money it's it's money that that spent wisely. What that the council. Chief of police and the mayor has to make it real. Real commitment to make an -- BB. What date they would they say the best equip the best trained in the best paid. Department and the and continued you can say what actually due to an end and take steps in that direction at all. I'm confused is there a residency laws not. There residency La is. It is there it's call it is his. Ouster that Kabul on. The job. Have to live here officers that -- -- better audit out already are. A case of the if if if if I want to be a police levels we're -- And I would have to live in -- world right. You can apply without being an all results are believed that you have to become. And six months of being -- yet to establish is that good or bad. While it is bad in there and that that it's fluctuated. Many arms administered. -- interpretations of a lot but it's it's not good because. You know many people that that it look at the job look at the cost of living in a long look at that you know what what. On that stick out not inspire children without announcement by north as opposed -- -- can -- A neighboring parish and school systems. That crime here believe that bilateral level of about sixty. What does does the current -- jail for a rookie. They start 34 while that's terrible. ER yeah it is at hand and the the opportunity. It is is it's getting better by. It's your laboratory -- that you can get promoted and should -- promote stand. That -- here to. I was out our job for seventeen years. And my first ten years on the job. Let -- take the shark just wants. And that it still took. Over three years. They promote from that list. And this thing about the tattoos. That seems a little childish to me. -- -- -- -- -- -- They have changed it to two a little bit. Out so stupid. They I would I would look at it like this today. Especially in in some of those tough neighborhoods and where you have some of these gangs where they all have tattoos. I'd want my police officers to have tattoos does then they could be just as big as the bad ass as the gang members of the way I would look at that. While -- what you want to please go to church. And end up not that that CNET. By an exposed to 10% on the professional and comes. Action from from the way to conduct themselves. And these men and women on street and let us say that. That the that the person you interact with that thing though. A police option get out of the passengers comparable characters and please get the outside -- just give it free and clear -- And -- know. Which officer. Test. And it doesn't have anything to do it -- it has to do how to present so. And so what is it going to take. And how soon -- this. The situation -- turn around thirtieth or do you think that we're we're a long way off before we concede this department rise to where it should be. You know a -- -- that question before I think it's. It's a simple answer that's a difficult. Task and I that they might not be able turned around but it. And it can be turned around -- taking politics out of the department. And it's that simple. But. I don't think any politician ever ever let that could name but -- power to. The cheap bleacher. -- You know I lived in them out of the New Orleans east of the war of Katrina and a I'm built a very beautiful home. I was I was very very happy. This was probably. Seven years so before Katrina. And no one afternoon I had Mumbai. At 530 in the afternoon while I wasn't home. Stolen from from my garage and a Wynton chased the guy. And I've I really wanted to live there and I -- one of the one of the things to be good. And we had of a block beating and they had some officers there. And I remember walking up to this a black police officer and -- you know something. A set I really have faith that this area is gonna come back it was going to be good little companies that. Have you lost your mind. He said I'm getting out here as soon as I possibly can. -- of this police department is in in in terrible shape and he said -- -- of this whole area is gonna go down and I didn't wanna believing but he was right. Well you know -- has two perspectives. Your sentences. In your and it could -- an inner inner workings of the police department. -- would which would sort of on that were approximately say you know that politicians. And and if that police didn't know any different and he didn't what part of the everyday -- -- of politics -- the city. It I would agree with it would work. -- hope that that what you are saying. What we watched it coming. The troops. But we see are we you know we know the police know. -- -- -- -- -- city to get compact car. God -- you know she knows what -- dot com back. It's about what to do. They can be done professionally can be done lately. It can be done within the confines of the consent decree does is to let the money. And what I think should be the source first priority in such. Public safety. And and that's simply not the case and they just for me the option was to -- Yes it distribute at -- and the police department that flush with money and endorse a great job. And don't need that extra money. Well that's great I don't think you'd find many citizens. That agreement. Erica appreciate your -- and I think they'll sure led to the show. Now again on this just you know believe it or not these police. -- the want to stay. They they want teaching. But but -- the -- start of the come. That the more wish you just got that green oppressed. It does seem to me that by the average person on the street. They really don't the police officers do not get the respect they deserve -- I would not wanna be a police officer. You know like we have this situation in Saint Louis. We don't know what's happened I'm I'm sure that we will find out what's happened. But like I I saw a sign that someone put Saint Louis and it said. The only good police officer of the only good opposite did cop and I mean people talk disrespect to -- to the police officers. There's there's just I mean. Society in general does not seem. The the honor and respect cops. Unconscious I think that your vocal minority but I think. I think what you have is again. Politics and I'll go back to a police officer Robert recently. That was confirmed with a deadly force situation where you know. Potentially is either. He -- surrogates got trapped in the little unfortunately you know he killed and fortunately there's you know some lobbying power and the police department. Basically -- on the sidelines. And defend and wouldn't come forth and say you know what he'd get retraining -- did he get exposed to. Alternately you know it took six months until that this child abuse case. But I think the department can do -- in need moved quickly to right and me to come forward and say that he's right and what if he's wrong. They need how important it. Have you heard anything about them the investigation in Saint Louis on on on what the facts are what the but. I know -- immediately hear the news out you know disrespect but that's. I don't think that is as our -- and. Well of the sides are so far apart mean one says that. He tried to taken to the policeman's weapon -- -- -- -- shot the other sides that he was walking on the street in the stands up. And the police just on the net so that's yeah. And in the most. You know. Not knowing anybody involved the most readable. I don't know of any any police does that destroy around there's certain people brought date like just because it's really. Discussion at. Well. You know that the -- have to be shown. And I'll just served it up. All right Gary thank you for -- into that okay. All right we have lines open 260187866890. It's seven it. -- people that had the what we'd like to call the Ambien experience of the an Ambien as well those drugs of some people connected. And it makes them see and do crazy things like this year. A text message I was on Ambien. And in the corner of my I saw a run. With moos. Antlers that was too freaky. I stopped taking Phillip you've had those one resident Ambien experience share a story with us that 26018. Levity. And NFL officials say they intend to call even more penalties this season. Is that good for the game -- -- purport to what the player to go at it a little bit more on Bob Mitchell and -- do this W don't know I'm Bob Mitchell and for us do tonight. We have some earlier problems that the phones but those of -- -- -- -- one opponent and take part of the show 26 Euro one late 786689. Point seven you can text -- and it's seventy -- avenue looking. For people and well liked to refer to as an Ambien. Experience I mean if you know if you know anyone who's -- Ambien. And had something crazy happened to -- give us a column let us know. Some people or explore and some some people you know I mean with me I can't take -- -- to take it. With them with no problem. 260187866890870. We're also looking about why do you think the New Orleans Police Department is having such a tough time. Getting officers to go to work for -- and what would it take for you. To become a member of the penalty and he and -- also aware -- were Rio remembering Robin Williams of the opinion -- a favorite movie -- -- comment you wanna. Make about is that it's a brutally really. A it's a sense that loss you know and and it shows you it shows you one thing that. When you even that some on this Lafley and then having a good time on the outside and seems. A great life but it doesn't mean that they are not suffering from deep depression -- -- hung himself you know. How hardest. They haven't to the toxicology. Report yet that's that's that's a couple weeks I just can't imagine. It unless you were really really really drawn you can you can you can just hang yourself you know not. Not not not fight for your life. That's the Bob had a bad experience -- Ambien. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- sure it's a clapper for phone calls over. Text messages here on my wife caught her. Only there while on Ambien woke up the next morning and solve -- here in the laboratory in did know what happen. Well now. Let's at 02 remote remote or you to night. Well I had to laugh when he -- ambient. It's not on our experience yeah. Should anything happen. That could be very serious. And Syria are. It makes you it makes you wonder why they aren't. Bigger warning labels on it -- -- while on cigarettes -- -- -- label on this and Julia. But in -- here here we are I've been on the air since 8 o'clock it would they have tons of stories. And tons of text message like this this lady that I just read -- Her own hair and didn't even remember it happened. Well my experience that I remember it was current. And one of them died from brownie and or -- I don't or some kind of thing and I lit her. So you know when I'm by. Or something I'll remember how many I've bought. The air travel -- -- to edit. And I go to bed -- night. I wake up the next morning. And all the ground -- yeah I -- right now. And for me thank god like in life threatening or anything significantly injure. But I didn't have a part of my intro mean. After the storm should -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and -- the next morning her out and out or weighted Carla I currently our bodies simple outlook. He's in the door he accomplished -- someplace else. He had no recollection and literally at that time and I were down. And -- is and it. A record level until. Well you know right mind you know my entry in our area -- some other. And they -- on -- thank god they weren't quite threatening. I had a a friend who was married. When he said that. He and his wife would dip into -- huge fights. Because. In wake up in the morning. And they would be either a bowl. Of of ice cream that'd been finished or bad cookies and a glass of milk. And she would say. You got up the middle like -- I didn't need that you -- that these are again at these again these flights the cuts. At that time people didn't realize that Ambien can actually do this ambient. Ambien can wipe your memory and -- and it's it it it is crazy. I mean I took report -- often offers over -- on a did not take it any. Anymore but hold them -- for one night win. My wife and spent the night. Watching TV and having dinner in -- and really good time. And you know the next morning she said. We really had a good time last night about often what do we do. You know we had don't you remember we -- we had a romantic dinner we watched that movie. Worries that the -- night together no we didn't. Yes. You know remote and it looked I don't know -- that might come on. You're trying to kidney here you'd YouTube you -- in my late entries that no and that's and said you've got to step taken that's. Well in that case in which favorable. Now I don't remember -- -- -- have been -- -- I don't remember you know in areas in -- it's not trade. But yet you know you don't -- big doctors prescribe it you don't see big OO warning labels on it. It. That's right and that. That I remembered it might help and the one like French. After Katrina. Right same here same with the list xmas I'm seventy years -- took some -- one night I was running around the apartment complex -- All. That my parents are on Ambien can convince them to. To get off of memory loss. Mood swings and short term. And member who's driving me to drink nuts you know. But it is it it it it is amazing and when you put the people and and you say I mean like the first time wiped out my memory. I thought I want to play and relieved that you you can should know. No problem and you the truth O. And a group and not didn't remember a thing nothing. Well. We would be leery and very much concerned. About any kind of medication. That it. -- side effects. Symptoms. Of the disease quality. Because at some point here now. Kind of like Miller and getting better yeah. Good point. -- appreciative -- in. Anything else wanna add to show. You gonna take an Ambien and go to bed right. No I'm actually gonna I do -- something analysts say toilets that are. Eat healthy. Exercise.
