this is a example of how far we haven't come as a people and human race. and the police should have known better unless they know more than indicating. what was the rush to get the truck back. and whats the harm of checking every finger print.its the mayor for goodness sake.

This whole incident sicken me. I worked with Wash for 15 of his 30+ years. There is/was no finer a human being that i've ever known. He was always upbeat and happy. Very much a leader not a boss but a true leader. I am also ashamed of the handling of the investigation, I hope I never have to depend on the coroner or the sheriff of Calcaseiu Parish. We will all miss Wash.

Since you knew the man, do what you can to help his family get this murder solved. I am afraid more people will be murdered before this is over. To all that took part ;WATCH OUT!
