Cajun Cop: America Has A New John Wayne

Captain Clay Higgins of St. Landry Parish in Louisiana has a new nickname; they call him “Cajun John Wayne.”

The cop has gained national notoriety for his videos calling out criminals and thugs who are stirring up trouble in his community.

The latest video, targeting the “Gremlin” street gang, was nothing less than a challenge for the thugs to “come at” the cop.

While Americans may laugh at the video, including late night host Jimmy Fallon, the Gremlins are no laughing matter.

For nearly the last decade, members of the Gremlins have made a literal living off of terrorizing St. Landry and surrounding areas. They deal in guns and drugs like typical thugs but take it a step further with home invasions, shake downs and intimidation.
