D.A. Who indicted Cheney Melts Down

You really cannot make this up.

Excitable Andrew’s favorite D.A. seems a bit excitable himself.  During a hearing before the supervising judge, Willacy County District Attorney Juan Angel Guerrapounded his fist and shouted at the judge Friday during a routine hearing” when the judge allowed motions to quash.  Apparently, the D.A. wanted Cheney and Gonzales in a perp walk and was upset when the judge didn’t order an arraignment.  Much screaming ensued and the judge called a recess to consult with the state Supreme Court, most likely about how to deal with an obstreperous D.A.  Given that he told the D.A. not to go anywhere, I expect the D.A. will be lucky to sleep at home tonight.

Fact not reported in the previous press items: the D.A. failed re-election, partly due to his own indictments.

    So they can just stall for time, wait for this guy to leave office, and then toss this pile of crap into the circular file…

    This guy really is a piece of work… Is he related to Jack Thompson, by chance?

  2. I’m glad you’re keeping up with this case. It’s fascinating the twists and turns small town justice can take. Stories like this show how powerful and important it is to take voting seriously, no matter where we live.
