Some of the pastors spoke critically of the sheriff, including Leonard Lucas of Light City Church, who said he supported Gusman during each of his campaigns. Lucas apologized for not speaking out sooner and for “ignoring the cries” of those behind bars in New Orleans.
“Marlin is our friend, but he treats us like he is our enemy,” Lucas said in an interview. “Our people are suffering, and we need some help. Marlin is not the man to help us. He’s proven to not be the leader we voted in.”
One of the pastors present refused to identify himself or comment on his attendance at the news conference.
