Email from on Health Care Reform; My Response

Jul 16, 2009 by

Dear Sir:
 While I applaud your efforts towards unilateral health care reform, I suggest you take a closer look at what is happening in Louisiana, particularly New Orleans.
 Our Governor is closing the only juvenile health care facility in New Orleans, as junvenile violent crime skyrockets off the charts.
 Our Superintendent of Police, Warren Riley, is on an extended trip to Australia on ‘police business’ while almost a quarter of a million dollars in cash has been looted from Police Evidence under his supervision.
 Murder rates make us the Murder Capital of America, yet he is unable to keep track of his own evidence, or be aware that these things must reported to the state. He claims ignorance of the law, and no serious investigation is under way.
 5 NOPD officers conspired to dangerously beat a city RTA worker, only because he is Black, further conspiring to plant a stolen weapon on him and coerce a civilian in to filing a false report. The District Attorney’s daughter, also a N.O. Prosecutor, is dating one of these officers, was on the scene, and said nothing. Only the civilian came forward, causing formal charges to be filed against the NOPD officers in question.
 Mayor C. Ray Nagin has urged US citizens to commit fraud on their 2010 census reports, so that the City of New Orleans can “get more money” as a result of their false claims to living here. He, too is under federal investigation.
 Sir; I live in a city run by a corrupt and racist regime, looting the city coffers and even police evidence lockers, stealing city vehicles for their own personal use, and hiring each other under shallow corporate disguises to attain rich city contracts, that then go unfulfilled.
 When I see signs that this deplorable and feudal System by Regime is brought to a close, I will consider turning my attention to the problems of National Health Care you mention.
 Until that time, I put it to you that we have been excluded from The American Dream you hold in such high regard, and been left to founder like a small third world nation, tossed about on the whim and profit of racketeers. 
Best Regards,
Lord David
New Orleans
