ProFootballTalkThe authorities in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana initially did not arrest Ronald Gasser, the 54-year-old man who shot and killed former NFL running back Joe McKnight last week. Gasser has since been arrested for manslaughter.

Sheriff Newell Normand, whose press conference from Friday seemed unreasonably defensive and unnecessarily combative, took it to the next level on Tuesday, complaining about the criticism his department has absorbed by pounding on the podium on multiple occasions and quoting from profanity-laden messages directed to elected officials who supported law enforcement’s desire to take a deliberate approach to the investigation of the shooting.

MSNBC quickly cut away from the press conference once Normand began reading the comments, which contained a variety of words not appropriate for broadcast.

This case was all over the place already with Gasser being arrested, released and arrested again and now the sheriff in charge seems to have lost his mind.

Normand read some of the worst words in the English language out loud during a press conference about something else. They just re-arrested they man accused of murdering McKnight and instead of focusing solely on that Normand gets super defensive and starts going rogue and dropping the n-word seemingly out of nowhere.

Here is MSNBC cutting away from the live broadcast.

Yes, it’s a shame if Normand and other officials are getting threats and being criticized, but maybe get the manslaughter issue settled first and then take on the haters.
