NOLA police superintendent discusses new agreement to clean up the department

Attorney General Eric Holder announced an unprecedented agreement designed to clean up the infamously corrupt police department in New Orleans yesterday.

Among more than 100 new requirements, the police department must now issue detailed reports each time police force is used videotape all interviews with suspects to make sure that no threats of harm are made.

Ronal Serpas, New Orleans police superintendent, joins Starting Point this morning to respond to the agreement and to explain what steps the department is taking to reform its ways.
