Little did I know our police chief was paranoid schizophrenic.
Police Superintendent Warren Riley lashes out at critics
Riley's recent comments came in a wide-ranging interview in which the chief, who has said he will leave office in May when Mayor Ray Nagin's term ends, blasted his critics. He decried the local media, some politicians, business leaders and a "shadow government" -- all of whom, he said, have joined forces to make him and Nagin appear incompetent.
"There are certainly people in city government and leadership positions who are incompetent, who are blatantly racists, who have done everything they could to make this administration fail,"
Riley said. Riley said that unnamed "powerful" people have launched a campaign to downplay his and Nagin's successes as city leaders.
Let me help him out with the names of those "unnamed powerful people" who have promoted the failures of this administration....Ray Nagin and Warren Riley....those are the people who have done the most damage to the reputations of Ray Nagin and Warren Riley.
A "shadow government"? Well, if they do exist they really suck at what they do man, cause they allowed Nagin to run this city into the ground for the past 8 years.
The shadow Mr. Riley is afraid of is his own.
I wonder if he's mistaking them for the shadow government that got Nagin elected in the first place....you know, all the white republicans Nagin fed contracts to over the past 8 years. Is that who we're talking about here?
It's truly amazing that these guys can't take responsibility for anything. Now all of their failures are the result of some mysterious white cabal? And Stacy Head is the High Priestess? And Riley is conveniently the one spouting this rhetoric now, at the end of his tenure and in the final weeks before an election?
This is pathetic.
There is a conspiracy but it's not the one Riley is prophesying. The call on WBOK was obviously a plant....and it was poorly orchestrated at that.
I think Riley needs to produce this email or resign....that simple.
Oh, and if he does produce an email, he needs to explain how he got it, where he got it and be prepared to prove the email hasn't been altered. Which means the source (Head) and the recipient(s) all have matching data, as well as every node in between....maybe we can get another LTC investigation or tap Sunblock...wherever they disappeared to.
more to come...
