I like the fact that he's:
1. Telling us that our city's law enforcement departments are incompetent. He's definitely not mincing words here. There's no "things are looking up" bullshit going on here. He's telling us the truth about just how fucked up the D.A.'s office was when he came in. I, for one, appreciate the candor.
2. He seems to be taking responsibility for the office. That alone is a revolutionary notion in New Orleans city government....an elected leader who actually steps up to the plate and takes responsibility for their job/department.
I think the D.A.'s office should be the top priority for our city for as long as it takes to get it running right. The solution to our crime problem is contingent on successful convictions...we have to get this right in order to make progress.
My lawyer once stated, "If you want to get away with murder in this country....come to New Orleans....its a cakewalk here." That's a pretty sad perspective, but true nonetheless.
