Re: “Flame War

Shame on every member of the Parish Council, and Mr. Broussard's administration, including the over-paid and uneducated asbestos attorney, Mr. Landry. Mr. Landry needs to return to his "self proclaimed" asbestos litigation and leave the firemen alone. How on earth can he lay his head down at nighttime knowing he is making false attacks at these life saving hero's? The actions on behalf of the Parish are PURE RETALIATION, they can deny it all they want, they know the truth. This fight began 3 weeks AFTER the Firemen had a vote of "no confidence" against Mr. Bonano, Director of Homeland Security and over the Fire Department, as well as interim Fire Supt Dave Saunders. Mr. Bonano possesses no qualifications to be in this position and does not possess any level of fire/life saving skills as compared to these hero's of our Parish. And Mr. Saunders qualifications? He has none. While in the Fire Department, he never made it past the position of Lieutenant. Mr. Saunders was never even put in a position to run one single Fire Station, and now he is over an entire department? Mr. Saunders has done everything to direct his employee's to do illegal and immoral things to not paying time owed to Firemen, and this is the man the Broussard administration trusts? This fight began over safety issues. Safety issues that the Firemen continued to bring forward to Mr. Broussard's administration that were blatantly and repeatedly denied. These safety issues range from not having the air packs (talk about life safety equipment) tested all the way to communication equipment. Doesn't anyone remember 9/11? Doesn't anyone remember how many Firemen died in 9/11 because of faulty safety equipment? I ask everyone, how many of you, after 25 plus years of performing life saving jobs would stand quiet, on the side, and let their beloved fire department ruined by incompentent administration? As far as the drug testing "squabble" goes, shame on every member of the Parish Administration who is trying to mis-lead the public stating the Firemen are fighting being drug tested. thse firemen have been drug tested since the early 90's. These firemen are asking that when they disclose a medication they take be directed to a Doctor, one that can make an educated guess as to how/if it will impair the fireman, as well as ensure the confidentiality of these firemen? Mr. Broussard, and Parish Council members, do the right thing. Leave these men alone. Leave their families alone Stop exploiting the true hero's of this parish. Stop wasting tax-payers dollars on this mud-slinging campaign to ruin their reputation. Haven't you already ruined their lives enough by posting their Social Security numbers "by accident" on the World Wide Web, and then didn't give them any identitity theft protection? When each of you're judgement day is upon you, may each of you be judged by how you chose to turn the truth around and waste tax payers dollars by saying false things about our hero's.
