SWS Thought Experiment: Sheriff Marlin Gusman
Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman is blamed for violence within the parish prison. Critics say it proves he's not fit for the position, despite a resume bursting with administrative accomplishment.
Is the NOPD superintendent blamed-and position endangered-for violence on the streets? Are each of the eight district ( precinct ) commanders blamed-and positions endangered-for crime in their areas? If so, they would already have been fired given New Orleans robust violence!
Odd how the only law enforcement official blamed for violence is the Orleans Parish Sheriff.
We reelected him to supervise a jail and programs attempting to manage career exporters of violence- a task made impossible by an army of naysayers who protest and file suit like a religious ritual.
None in critics ranks want to blame allegedly angelic inmates for violence in and out of custody- which incidentally isn't protested nor federally regulated. Try that Catch 22 on for size.
The inmates are free to do what they want and we in urban areas will pay for the Sheriff's potential defeat when these victorious prisoners are released!
I ask urban hostages to please consider that when you hear a strange sound in your house. No protestors nor lawyers will be available to help you. End of thought experiment... and perhaps your life.
