Day 789: Looked Over Jordan And What Did I See

The City Stupidity Meter is now permanently stuck at 11.

New Orleans District Attorney Eddie Jordan Harbored Fugitive And Let Said Suspect Leave

The 20-year-old man stopped by Jordan’s house minutes after he allegedly fled after an armed robbery outside a nearby Shell gas station. He arrived at Jordan’s house on foot, having run away after the robbery victim rammed his sport utility vehicle into the car carrying the suspect, police documents said.

Investigators later also connected the suspect, Elton Phillips, to an eastern New Orleans robbery and shooting by two gunmen, who critically wounded a police officer and shot the officer’s wife in the foot after breaking into their home late at night.

This is the interesting bit:

… investigators had difficulty interviewing Jordan, according to documents. Those reports indicate investigators repeatedly called Jordan’s cell phone over the course of three days, but he failed to answer and his voice mail was full. At one point, investigators went to Jordan’s home and rang the doorbell for 10 minutes, but no one came to the door.

At this point, it’s hard to tell who is dumber – the kid for running to the DA’s house or the DA for clamming up when he should be most cooperative and forthcoming.  It is obvious Jordan will plead ignorance of the kid’s wrongdoing prior to arriving at his house, and gets out of any culpability.  After forcing the city to pay $3.7 million in damages for his foibles, the only honorable course of action for this DA would be immediate resignation.  Like that’s going to happen.

    Yes, this guy is one of my exceptions to the name-calling rule. He’s an incompentent unprofessional egomaniac who mocks the pain and struggle of an entire city. I want him out NOW.

    It’s extremely sad when the bums can’t see how low they’ve gone and at least have the good manners to resign. Every politico these days seems to want to drag everybody through an excruciating process of “innocent until proven guilty to the bitter end”, meaning more time, money, and wasted breath. It’s as though they all know how much time and money it takes to bring them to justice in the courts and they are just daring the public to play that game of chicken. What am I saying…they probably DO know this, which is a good part of the problem.
