OK, it’s really a very simple story. It’s commonly called “The Free State of Bossier” story. Harken back to the days of yesteryear. And, you get to see a portion of it as it played out in the video of a Louisiana State Police traffic stop of a suspected driver under the influence. (VIEW VIDEO HERE!) The story goes like this:
Bossier Parish Police Juror Henry Meachum is arrested by Louisiana State Police on a charge of driving under the influence. Bossier-Webster District Attorney Schuyler Marvin calls upon Louisiana Attorney General Charles Fory to prosecute the case, in an effort to avoid the appearance of evil. However in reality they send in Asst. Attorney General Clifford Strider to squash the DWI for Marvin.
Despite all the evidence mounted against Meachum in this video and after admitting to being under the influence of painkillers and mixed drinks after a night of partying, Strider squashes the DWI and merely charges Meachum with reckless operation. Strider is the same prosecutor Marvin used to squash the DWI of his investigator Buddy Mondello’s daughter Brandi Mondello Dunn. Strider is also the same prosecutor that assisted Marvin as co-prosecutor when at the murder trial of Charles Rodgers Pilkinton and on the third day of trial they allowed him to plead to negligent homicide after Pilkinton shot his estranged wife’s male friend in the head while he was sitting in a car parked in her driveway. Pilkinton is the father-in-law of Marvin’s best friend’s brother. For the full details on this story, check out the details in the June 1, 2012 issue of The Inquisitor.
And for those of you who still believe in the Tooth Fairy, Bossier Parish runs a “real tight ship!” As long as you play ball their way…
