Kerlikowske’s Shame

President Obama has nominated Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske to be drug czar. This is more pathetic than appointing a man who can’t do his taxes as secretary of treasury.

Kerlikowske is not only a militant opponent of the second amendment and citizen’s right to defend themselves, his record shows that as a police Chief for Seattle he was unwilling to protect the people of the city. In 2001 during the Mardi Gas Riots, Chief Kerlikowske, instead of sending in police to put down the riots, cordoned off the area and did nothing while 70 of the people he is sworn to protect were sent to the hospital and one was killed.

The plain fact is that he doesn’t have the credibility to be sheriff of a one horse town never mind being a senior federal law enforcement officer. The war on drugs is enough of a farce already without putting a clown in charge of fighting it.
