Yea if that olde boy would have kept his mouth shut and made a professional statement nobody would have never known that he was in fact a BIGOT.
At some point in reading his statement he sounded a bit denfensive. You think maybe he was pissed because his quick suicide conclusion was not accepted. Makes me wonder if he was in on it too?

How much of a BIGOT do you have to be to become the corner of WESTLAKE, LA. I Can't believe that this man seems to think that the Black Community is that STUPID. I think that because he can come and try to tell that Family such a DUMB ASS STATEMENT "HE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A SUSPECT". These people should get their own autopsy done and then GET the DUMBASS FIRED, AND PUT IN JAIL FOR BEING AND ASSORY TO MURDER. PLEASE FIGHT TO GET HIS ASS CARGED

PEOPLE WHO COMMIT SUICIDE DON'T SHOOT THEM SELF IN THE CHEST. THEY USUALLY SHOOT THEM SELF IN THE HEAD.
I am mystified as to why you think people only kill themselves by shooting themselves in the head. If you can provide statistics to support this, then I'll believe it. Otherwise, I'll not mention the neighbor I had who shot himself in the mouth---with a 22 caliber (he actually bled to death before the ambulance could get there) and the others who take pills, hang themselves, cut themselves...face it, taking your own life makes no sense---that is why we cannot understand it.

it is not a race thing wrote:
First off, I live here in Calcasieu Parish. I voted for the Sheriff last election, and plan to do it again next election. I too have read all the news stories related to this incident. I have complete faith in the Sheriff and the Coroner. I trust they are doing everything they can to get to the bottom of this case. Although it may not initially look like a suicide, I believe that if Mr. Washington’s family continues to dig, I think they will eventually end up with egg on their face. Despite everyone’s ravings about the wonderful man he is, everyone has skeletons in his closet. I just hope and pray that the family doesn’t regret their decision to call in the New Black Panthers, and every other organization to spin this whole sad occurrence into a “racist conspiracy”. Please let the man rest in peace before the Police find something you wish they hadn’t.
EXACTLY!! I believe that at this point, if State Police findings indicate he did indeed take his life, people will be squealing because they WANT to believe that it was murder. That makes the whole situation easier to understand. I also hope that Mr. Washington's name is not tarnished by what they may find. That would be truly sad.

Ok. First I have to say, all this black, white stuff has to stop... You people don't know anything besides hear say and what you are reading in the paper. Mr. Washington was indeed a very good person, and would have made an Awesome Mayor, but was apparently troubled by something, the autospy proved that he had not eaten in 3 days prior to his death, now for someone to not eat in 3 days that would raise a "RED flag" The CPSO is getting all the blame for this, and thats not right... I've lived hear all my life and I wouldn't change that for the world!

OK, the State Police Report is out now. Read it! It is a shame that this could not be accepted for what it was, a depressed man with problems who took a permanent solution to temporary problems. Now all is known and it is without question! Very sorry to hear it. Seems like this man was liked by all who knew him!
