A sampling of public opinion from Drew Broach’s piece at NOLA.com on Aaron Broussard’s last performance before heading to the federal penitentiary at Butner North Carolina:
Is it just me or does anyone buy this or feel sorry for Broussard? I do not feel sorry for him. He, most likely, has been violating the law for a great deal longer than what he was caught doing. Even now when I travel, I still get asked about/laughed at because of this man crying on national television in a pathetic attempt to cover his backside because the drainage pumps were not staffed and the telling of that “tragic” story that turned out not to be true. I always wanted to ask him why they did not place the pump operators in the same location as the JPSO Deputies that stayed during Katrina. The scorn and national ridicule that he brought upon himself was self-inflicted and deserved, it is just unfortunate that the citizens of Jefferson Parish had to pay the price for his actions along with his lack of actions.
I had to watch my 80 year old mother sit on a mold covered sofa under her carport in Metairie, as my family and I carried everything she owned, evrything she acquired in 80 years get stacked up in front of her house in a big stinky pile of trash. I heard her ask me on every item I piled on that stack. ” Can we safe that, Can we save that?” All because of the stupidity of Aaron Broussard and his assinine Master of Disaster, Maestrie’s, secission to send the only onew who knew how to turn on the pumps to Mt Herman Louisiana. All of these Louisiana knuckleheads who stress forgivness for corrupt politicians are the source of the problem. You have to make public servants, and that is SERVANTS, responisible to the public for their actions. Aaron Broussard was corrupt for 30 years. He is only sorry he got caught. Now I guess when he gets out some ass will offer him some money to come and talk to elementary students about his experiences, Like we so with another life long corrupt politician Edwin Edwards. Lets give him a job and put him on TV. Makes me want to puke. Let him preach to the inmates at Federal Prison for a few years and then, come out and try to make amends to the hundreds of elderly Louisiana citizens that he was indirectly, and in some cases directly reponsible, for shortening their lives. GODD RIDENCE
I am sorry I can’t be there in person to raise a glass when they slam the gate behind you
Rot in hell, AB
Your deserved misery will be very small in comparison to the misery you caused for the tens of thousands residents of JP whose lives were forever changed due to your poor decisions
Rot in hell, AB, while I rejoice
sad face looks like the stare my puppy does after a puppy makes a puppy p——-. aaron you should be on the cover in an orange prison jump suit like the common louisiana corrupt political criminal you are. It is a shame a poor black man arrested or any non politician has to do the walk of shame in the news. you get a a posed photo in the news with nice clean laundered suit. one of your suits or your italian hand knit sweater cost more money than amount that would send a poor man to jail for longer than you.
PS Aaron did you stash the money in canada with the boys at the lodge?
A reasonable question given the events that transpired since January 2010 IMHO.
Stay tuned. In part 3 Slabbed debuts its first internet video promo. 😉
