Donelon: Two Louisiana Dept. Insurance Commission Investigators Killed
Written by 

The Commissioner of the Louisiana Department of Insurance, Jim Donelon has released the following statement confirming a shooting and killing of two LDI Fraud Section investiators.

It is with deep sadness that I confirm that two Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) Fraud Section investigators were shot and killed today while attempting to collect case information from an agent in Ville Platte during the course of an investigation.  Rhett Jeansonne, has been an investigator with the Fraud Section since November of 2006.  Kim Sledge, an 11 year employee of LDI began her career in 2000 in the Health Division and later became an investigator with the Fraud Section.

I have personally spoken to members of both Ms. Sledge’s and Mr. Jeansonne’s families to express my sympathies over this tragic and unnecessary situation.  Employees at the Department have also been notified of the deaths of their coworkers and are being provided with grief counseling as requested.  My deepest sympathies go out to the loved ones of our two departed colleagues, in particular, the surviving spouses and children of these brave individuals.

Louisiana State Police are investigating the shootings and will provide the media with additional details as they become available.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
