Lots of news over at NolaAgainstCrime. The one about the anti-gay beating was disturbing. The NOLA-wide boycott idea has merit.
NOPD Officer speaks out at Jordan's office (video). The DA's office pressured him to decline to press charges.
It seems that Maitri's campaign is finally starting to see results.
Midura has come out calling on Jordan's resignation. Hopefully, she's the first of a mass of calls for his resignation. If any local pol is reading this blog, I have this advice: you don't want to be Johnnie-Come-Lately on this one.
Nagin pokes his head out of his spider hole. Is Vitter in there with you?
Did anyone else listen to Garland Robinette today?!?!? That was the greatest show he's done since the "get off your ass" show! He kicked ass and took names. 'It's not about race anymore. It might have been in the past, but that's not the case right now. People are dying on the streets. Everyone is in fear of your lives. No more studies, no more promises, Jordan has got to go right now. Call up every politician in the city (and then he proceeds to give out names, numbers, and emails) and demand they publicly add their names to the call for his ouster. Nothing less than that is acceptable.' The mood was angry as hell and even if I didn't come close on that quote, I hope I conveyed the mood.
If you haven't already, please write your council member and ask them to add their voice to the calls for Jordan's resignation.
UPDATE- Here are recordings of the Garland Robinette Show today:
Do yourself a favor and listen to them.
PLEASE, I'M BEGGING YOU, LISTEN TO THE GARLAND SHOW
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! JORDAN MUST GO NOW! WE SHALL STORM THE BASTILLE IF NEED BE, BUT HE MUST GO NOW!
Jordan's Response to Midura. Utter bullshit, as if I even need to say it.
UPDATE 5- Jordan, Pack Your Shit and Get the Hell Out of Here!
UPDATE 6- Big roundup on calls for his resignation at The Chicory. Thanks, Varg.
