U.S. Marshalls last week captured an escaped child rapist who was found hiding amidst Katrina contract workers. I've said it before. I don't mean to create hysteria, but we need to be aware of the additional danger that we may be exposing ourselves to, and our children to, when we allow contractors into the city who pay cash and don't investigate the backgrounds of the people they hire. It's the perfect place for violent criminals to hide out. Any wonder why drug activity is up? Have you been seeing, as have I, the open deals on the street. There's little fear of the criminal justice system.
I'll say once again, the negligent incompetence of the poseur who calls himself "sheriff," Marlin Gusman -- the right hand that washed Marc Morial's filthy left -- needs to be investigated and recalled. Despite his own claims of bravery, wading into floodwaters to perform rescues, his own deputies are saying, "that man didn't touch the water."
