Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Governor’s law enforcement committee asks the age-old question: Who watches the watchers?
The call for a special prosecutor sends up red flags for me. Removing police prosecutions from local control adds a layer of insulation shields the special prosecutor from local oversight. We already have a system of locally elected County Attorneys that has withstood the test of time. Hennepin and Ramsey counties are politically deep blue so anybody elected County Attorney basically will be elected by Democrats, the party of the people, defenders of the downtrodden. If local prosecutors are racist, it’s because the Democrats who elected them are racist in which case your problem is not with the local prosecutors, it’s with the DFL party and its voters. Appoint more apparatchiks won’t change the racist attitudes of the appointers.
But it will add another office full of bureaucrats with AFSCME and MAPE memberships donating dues to the DFL.
If the DFL could find a way to sell the pelts of police abuse victims for political donations, they’d do it.

The other day, you took time off from measuring the drapes in the Governor’s office to Demsplain how you plan to end atrocities like the Las Vegas shooting:
Representative Walz: I realize you’re talking to your DFLer base, and they’re not long on logic, much less less knowledge on this issue, but perhaps you, or one of them, could tell me: how would “background checks” have prevented a shooting by a person with no criminal background that anyone seems to be aware of?
I’ll be inviting Rep Walz onto the Northern Alliance Radio Network this Saturday to discuss this.
But let’s focus for a moment on the statement “Let me be clear: Iv’e ot the credibility to bring gun owners to the table in St. Paul to get this done”.
Rob Doar from MNGOC had the most accurate response so far:
Pandering, you say?
Why, yes – pandering is the word:
With that photo, you are as “credible” with gun owners as David Duke would be as an emissary to Black Lives Matter.
