I am a candidate for Attorney General and have been critical of Dr. Pou’s handling of the Dr. Pou case. But I do the same thing. You should know about this before you decide to vote for me as you need to know all the facts. Please study State v. Judge Patricia Hedges in which I utterly decimate the public reputations of 5 innocent human beings before being forced to dismiss the case because I had no evidence. I admitted that I operated from “a presumption of guilt”. You might also view the Dead Pelican website in which the audio… Read more »

I was working in a hospital on the Mississippi Gulf Coast during Katrina. The conditions in the hospital were terrible during and after the storm, we too had families of employees taking shelter, on top of having patients. No fresh water, no sewer, limited food, and no way of understanding the magnitude of the storm. Decisions had to be made in a split second at times, and sometimes people whom you would normally look to for decisions were unable to make them. For anyone that did not go through this storm and live through what medical personnel and citizens had… Read more »

And so you see I told you all the truth about Anna and the results of the Grand Jury before it ever happened. And now I will tell you all also another truth though I suspect many of you will not want to hear, but the truth is nevertheless the truth: there where others whom Anna also killed. Look to the bodies recovered from the hospital chapel and you will have your answer also.

Dear Val: Anna is also my friend and I promised her I would not talk about the things we have talked about. I wish I could tell you more, but I made a promise and I am therefore bound to keep it. What I can tell you is this: Foti was not rhe principle in the original investigation. Instead Jullie Cullen, Director of the Criminal Division of the Attorney Generals Office spearheaded the original investigation. What I can tell you is this: the case against Anna will not go further than the Grand Jury. There will be no court case… Read more »

First of all I am an MD and I did go through Katrina and I do know Anna Pou. But trying to be objective and somewhat logical here no one is allowed or justified to “play God” and decide when another’s life should end. However, we are bound to reduce suffering whenever possible. It is completely bogus to say that you cannot give versed and morpine together– we do it all the time in ICU or the OR etc. Therefore, Foti doesn’t know what he is talking about. We are usually able to monitor those patients but in this case… Read more »

Stephen! You stated that “it logically follows that most people would have done the same in her position.” Can I ask you a question? Do you know what Dr.Pou did? You also state that “she came to a decision.” Do you know what that decision was and why she made it? You stated that “she could not simply sit and watch those patients go through days of agony.” So do you know what she did? Stephan, I understand that your remarks are well intentioned, as I think most of the comments have been, but with all due and sincere respect,… Read more »

Bill… That is ridiculous. This country is by no means becoming a nation that considers murder an act of compassion “under certain circumstances”. This is a nation of rational individuals who understand what that hospital was like after Katrina. One of you said that “this is not a story about a city called New Orleans or about a storm called Katrina or a hospital named Memorial.” In a place with the wretched smell of human excrement and the 110 degree heat, and the sound of gunshots that became routine, and the moans of agony coming from every room, to say… Read more »

What I sincerely do not understand and perhaps someone could kindly explain in gentle terms, is how we have become or are in the process of becoming a nation of individuals who in their hearts have come to understand that the killing of others under certain circumstances, is considered an act of “mercy” and “compassion.” And in writing this I am reminded of some ancient and wise words that went something like this: “And some of you they will kill and in killing you they will think they are doing a good thing.” How in the world have we come… Read more »

JJ: You obviously have no idea who Foti is. He is firmly entrenched as part of the Jefferson and Edwards N.O. machine. He has a history littered with hit and runs, a separate drunk driving accident that nearly killed three people (and attempting to avoid reponsibility because the cop wrote the wrong date on the booking form), suits for gender discrimination against him, leaving the scene of an accident in an unrelated incident, not to mention the blatant humiliation of three medical heroes after Katrina in an attempt to cover up for his own shameful performance.

There was a comment posted on this site on april 15, 2007 credited to me. I learned of the posting today in court through a colleague. I did not post anything on this site. Whoever did so in my name will be sued if I learn of his identity.

Amen Bill D!! Better to have someone who supports upholding the law than a young, inexperienced, questionable candidate who already has legal troubles that are “dirty” at best and promises to not uphold the law when it is applied to certain individuals. That would put Louisiana on the “bizarre” map for sure.

I agree with Johnathen. The killing of humans is never OK. Are all the liberals always so overly emotional, “outraged” and irrational? And if some of them are docs? then… YIKES!

Any alternative to one of the most pathetic political opportunists and criminals in our state’s history is relevant to the discussions on this blog. This is even more true when you consider that the targets of Foti are medical professionals whom he has used as pawns and humiliated. Foti has destroyed the lives of these brave women for political gain and to distract from his own cowardly performance during and after Katrina. Any thoughtful discussion of an alternative to a politican who persecutes medical heroes for political gain is highly appropriate for this site. Time and time again throughout his… Read more »

I agree with JY – Go argue politics somewhere else. This board should not be used to promote some sleezy candidate.There are political boards just for that purpose.
