Police Chief Pulls an "Obama" -- Wants to be Judge, Jury, and Executioner

• by William N. Grigg (Lew Rockwell blog)

Jason Ellis of Bardstown, Kentucky was fatally shot in the early morning hours of May 25 in what appeared to be an ambush. Ellis was a former professional baseball player who became a K-9 officer with the local police department. Of infinitely greater importance, this young man was a husband and father to two young sons.

In reacting to the murder of Jason Ellis, Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin, a 25-year veteran of federal and local law enforcement, spoke of revenge, rather than justice:

“I can assure you we won’t give up on this person or persons until we either have them in custody or in the front sight of one of our weapons. I certainly hope the latter is the case.”
