 sometimes you have to wonder if they're really this stupid as this mayor tells you this crap;

U.S.A. – -( “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 desk.

True to form, McBride straddles the issue, offering a tepid “Statement Affirming Support of Wauwatosa Police Department” on the one hand while issuing  a virtue-oozing “Racial Justice and Equity” statement to mollify those inclined to exploit what Rep. James Sensenbrenner called “deteriorating security” in his letter to the mayor offering to help “restore law and order.” more........
