Juan Guerra a Little Crazy Part 2

The Houston Chronicle is following the story of the Willacy County DA who indicted Vice President Dick Cheney and Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez along with a state senator and a district judge. I posted the original story and did a little online research. From what I read I asked if these were the actions of a mentally balanced individual. This morning, the chronicle has a follow up story and the question still stands. A hearing to quash the indictments was held this week. It was originally held Wednesday, but DA Guerra didn't bother to show up. Why the judge allowed him to get away with that I don't understand. However, DA Guerra really showed his imbalance according to the article;

"... Guerra pounded the table and accused Banales of giving the defendants special treatment in allowing motions to quash the indictments to be heard before the defendants were arraigned.

"Now all of a sudden there is urgency!" Guerra shouted at Banales. "Eighteen months you kept me indicted through the election!"

To me, Guerra contradicts himself with this statement, showing that this whole crusade of his is personal. He lost the democratic primaries last month and is trying not to go gently into that good night. Remember originally Guerra said he didn't indict the Vice President, the grand jury did? Someone needs to remind him that the grand jury indicted him not the judge.

"What came out today was the mental state of the prosecutor was exposed to the court," said Tony Canales, co-counsel representing private prison company The GEO Group. But that talk only incited Guerra, who said he's heard himself called "loco" before."

How about "loco que una rata sh**house!"
