DA Cannizzaro on truth serum

Via AZ

You definitely gotta check this out.

It's video of our District Attorney getting all candid in an official capacity. He calls out the NOPD and his own office, tells the truth about how effed up our criminal justice system is right now.

Riley thinks he's being called out. And he is to some degree but Cannizzaro is really just criticizing the whole system (including his own office). It's a contrast between a guy who refuses to take any criticism seriously and another who isn't afraid to criticize himself.

Yes indeed it is. He doesn't at all "go after" Riley. He tells the truth.

When did Jefferson Parish officials become that concerned with the well being of citizens in Orleans to ask our DA to attend a crime forum? I don't disagree with anything he said but why is he explaining himself to the suburbs.

I must have been out of town when the regional care and cooperation started.

He also said he has a city that does not "respect" the D.A.'s office or the judicial system. Isn't that pandering to his white Jefferson parish audience, or do folks in the blancosphere not respect the D.A.'s office and Judicial system?

I don't think there are many people of any color with much faith in the criminal justice system.

he said "respect," not faith. He said he lived in a city where people did not "respect" the D.A.'s office and the judicial system. Am I wrong, please post the "faith" quote. If I am right, then it was pandering to racists who think that all blacks are lawless.
