  1. it looks like he did not get a felony conviction until after Marvin got elected. I would say he does his job pretty well.

  2. Good point, it wasn't my intention to criticize the DA or anyone else. I really believe the first offender automatic pardons should be changed so that there is some review process before they are issued.

  3. marvin has this guy Mondello in the hot checks department for his office...larry thompson, the bank truck heist guy that stormed greenacres subdivision and shot at police, (suspected of various murders as well) actually OWNED a business with this Mondello...thompson even made a call to his friend (mondello) during the crime (check court records.)

    keep in mind this garret character with the school board "Air Repair" incident had just left prison for a murder of a guy that won money at a local casino...he reportedly beats up his girlfriend, marvin lets the guy go for "lack of evidence" then issues some letter to jackson saying to quit running his mouth saying he has friends in the DA's office, according to ktbs.

    sounds like to me we have some bad apples in the da's office, starting at the very top

  4. Being relativelew to this state, I would like to know, are the Judges appointed or elected ?, if it's elected, maybe it's time to remove some.....infavor of more conservative judges who will keep these low lifes locked up ?....I have noticed a lot of insider crimes in this state, I recently saw two criminal judges jailed for crimes, I am wondering why so many in law enforcement are getting into trouble ? just a thought

  5. Good question. Keep in mind there are various players involved.
    1. The legislature-which defines the sentencing of these criminals.
    2. D.A. Office-Whether or not they are prosecuted or allowed to "plea bargain".
    3. Judges-Sentencing along the parameters of the conviction.

    All of these folks are elected in Louisiana.


Rules of the road:
1. No personal attacks or insults.
2. No accustory statements about wrongdoing or criminal acts against anyone.
3. Say all you want about the pros and cons concerning the candidates and the issues, or the general subject of the blog post, just follow Rule #1 and Rule #2.
