 this post will illustrate just how stupid those in charge can be;

“Guns have no place in shopping malls or other places in which crowds of people gather. Mayfair has a strict no-gun policy,” Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis R. McBride declared Saturday in a statement about Friday’s Mayfair Mall shootings when eight people were injured. “If the shooter had complied with that policy, no one would have been hurt yesterday.”

If only violent criminals would behave themselves! If only wishes came true!

Such “thinking” is worse than childish, it’s delusional. Not that McBride believes it. He’s just following an M.O. that’s allowed him to fool enough of the people enough of the time to gain political power in an area with a critical mass of useful idiots: Telling them what they want to hear.

That’s why he prattles on about Wauwatosa being “a safe and vibrant community.” McBride is trying to keep a lid on things and appease police who have proven inadequate at protecting the city, and the black community protesting an officer shooting and killing one of its own. Disregard that the circumstances of the shooting make it appear justified, although it being the third fatality for this particular officer in five years should raise more than eyebrows, and more than excuses about why the buck doesn’t stop at his more........
