From City Business:

Police Superintendent Warren Riley and District Attorney Eddie Jordan apparently dislike each other so much they pull audacious stunts such as delaying reports and releasing guilty criminals to antagonize and embarrass each other. At least those are the excuses each man offered when asked last week by the City Council to explain their ineffectiveness.

The dysfunctional relationship is the antithesis of what is needed in New Orleans today. The feud between Jordan and Riley hurts all of us by reducing the city’s ability to fulfill its responsibility to combat crime.

Some of the problems such as coordinating the police reports and charging someone with a crime to avoid a 701 release are no-brainers that the NOPD and DA ought to be able to coordinate effectively.
