"That's how we rock in O-P-P, baby” a man shouts as an inmate snorts substances up his nose.
The point of the video appeared to be to expose the conditions at the jail, show people exactly what was going on inside.
It was one of three videos shown in court this morning as part of the federal lawsuit over Orleans Parish Prison conditions.
The origin of the videos is unclear. And in court, the men in the video, and those behind its production, were never named.
Nonetheless, some information was gleaned from courtroom testimony. For example, the videos were found just days ago, subpoenaed as part of a grand jury probe into the sheriff's office. They were taken from inside a safe belonging to Sheriff Gusman's office.
