    Democrat Pick For AG Too Busy

    For his Job?

    Remember that guy from Michigan who went around stabbing people?  That guy, Elias Abuelazam, has been arraigned on a charge of assault with intent to murder. And while he has only been charged for one attack, more charges can be expected. Abuelazam, to date, is accused of stabbing 13 people in Flint, 5 of those resulting in death. There is also 1 Ohio non-fatal stabbing, an additional 3 non-fatal attacks in Virginia, and an investigation into a probable link to a 2009 homicide stabbing in that same state.

    Last Thursday, Abuelazam was extradited from Atlanta to Michigan. The extradition process alone was drawn out and costly.

    The Virginia connection has problems however.  It seems while the Flint attacks were linked to the Virginia attacks, a full two weeks before the extradition process, there was no attempt to contact the Virginia officials by the Genesee prosecutor.  In fact, the prosecutor for Loundoun County in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Jim Plowman publicly criticized David Leyton for not returning his calls or messages. On one occasion, Plowman claims he asked to speak directly to David Leyton regarding the Abuelazam case.

    "You'd think they'd return my phone calls, especially since I have information that will help them,"

    Plowman described leaving a detailed message for an assistant prosecutor, asking to talk directly with Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton. It seems he is still waiting:
    "I know multi-jurisdictional cases are tough, but I should be able to get my counterpart on the phone."

    Indeed..  a little more below..

    So Mr David Leyton, the choice, the pick, the flag bearer for Democrat styled justice as AG, doesn't find it important enough to at least call Plowman about the Virginia attacks? What a sad implication of his care for the office of the prosecutor and the inability to communicate to effectively perform his current job.  

    I am sure however he could be forgiven for a minor slip such as this.. in a capitol case.. as he has a tight campaign schedule..  ..Right?

    I for one, ponder daily the priorities offered by those on the left, Liberals, in the progressive camp, social justice folks, yada yada..  I cannot yet place my finger on that point where there becomes such a complete disconnect and all common sense falls to the wayside.  This is the result of such thinking.

    I imagine if I had more information on this case, I would find there is even more mismanagement other than the obvious failure to communicate with one's peers.  Alternately, maybe I do not have enough information to implicate Leyton as failing in the responsibility he holds.

    But on its face, and given the safety of our communities that hang in the balance, it seems this is enough to point out a flaw in the management of such responsibility.
