Seattle's Top Cop Honored

Today at noon, CeaseFire, one of the most vehement anti-gun organizations in the country will honor Chief Gil Kerlikowske of the Seattle Police Department for his efforts in destroying the second amendment.

On January 3, 2005, it was reported that Chief Kerlikowske lost his Glock 26 when a thief broke into his unmarked Crown Victoria and stole it. Oops. The pistol has not been recovered.

"I don't have exact details as to where the gun was in the car, but I can tell you that it was secured in the car," said Seattle Police spokesman Sean Whitcomb. "It wouldn't have been available to anyone just wandering by." Police said the thief probably would not have known the Crown Vic was a police car, or that a firearm was inside. So, in other words, a Chief of Police's incompetence became a criminal's good fortune. CeaseFire has chosen to honor the Chief.

"Friday at noon, Washington CeaseFire is going to honor Chief Kerlikowske for his efforts to restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners, when he can't even keep track of his own firearm," said Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms Chairman Alan Gottlieb. "More than a year ago, the chief's personal 9mm Glock was stolen from his city-owned car, while it was parked on a Seattle street, while he and his wife were shopping. Such negligence should not be rewarded." Gottlieb noted that CCRKBA's $1,000 reward for the recovery of Kerlikowske's pistol still stands.

We are known by the company we keep.

Side-note:
Chief Gil Kerlikowske and Wayne LaPierre, CEO and executive vice president of the National Rifle Association discuss the sunsetting of the AWB Sept. 9, 2004.

"We know that people will buy them [high capacity handguns] and that unfortunately they will get stolen from their homes and out of their cars. And they are going to proliferate on our streets."
Chief Gil Kerlikowske, Seattle Police Department

How's that for a self fulfilling prophecy?

Why is this cooper a "bad" cop?

The last copper you profiled was a "good" guy. Some citizen was "fighting" with him and a cripple shot the "perp" in the head to save the "good" cop.

Not to mention all the "good" cops in New Orleans during huricane Katrina confiscating firearms from peasants. Those cops were "good" were they not?

Is there really anyone that doesn't know that a late modle white Crown Victoria is a cop car? Especially since Ford has pretty much had the cop car market to itself since '96.

This guy is or should be the poster boy for whats wrong with policing in America. He's just another example of a well educated,well meaning leftist Chief of Police who have NO clue as to what goes on in the real world. He sits in his office in the ivory tower and makes decisons that impact our lives when in reality he has no expertise to do so. Get used to it ladies and gentlemen, he represents what future Chiefs will be about and is EXACTLY the kind of Chief that the politicians want.
