NOTE: I orginally posted a picture of Schuyler Marvin and Mike Craig at a Craig fundraiser. It seemed to upset some people that I posted the picture, so I took it down. I only posted it to prove a point, and I believe the objections prove that point more eloquently than the picture itself.
Judge Dewey Burchett is no stranger to attacks from the good old boys. When he was City Attorney of Bossier City he was instrumental in uncovering and correcting problems in the Police Department.
When it came out that some in the department were using interrogation tactics that were nothing short of torture, the good old boys tried to cover it up. You know the syndrome, pretend it’s not there and maybe it will go away. What the people don’t know won’t hurt them.
Dewey Burchett enlisted the aid of the FBI and cleaned up the problem. This did not endear him to the good old boys and the machine politicians.
He was not elected judge with the help of a political machine. He has never been a part of that sort of thing, but has instead held office by virtue of his character on and off the bench.
Now the good old boys are back. The District Attorney, born into a politically influential family, is supporting Judge Burchett’s opponent, an assistant DA. The boys are on the attack.
Let them bring it on. Judge Burchett told me not long ago “I was a fighter pilot, I’m not afraid of anything.”
I believe him.
Give this long consideration, forget all the political rhetoric and look at the facts:
Degree in Government from LSU.
Served as a fighter pilot in the US Air Force from 1962 – 1967.
After service, got his law degree from LSU.
Served as City Attorney of Bossier City.
Served as District Judge for the last 20 years.
Give it your consideration and then give your continued support to Dewey Burchett.
