Criminals need to be punished

Much as I admire Mr. Priggee’s ability as a cartoonist, I would advise him to refrain from showing his absolute ignorance of some issues. His recent cartoon showing the NRA throws reality out of balance by insinuating it is the reason for the loss of lives of our law officers.

If we would get rid of such obstacles of injustice such as the ACLU

(All Criminals Love Us), and start punishing criminals instead of persecuting the innocent, rest assured crime would all but disappear. Singapore has no crime. Why? Because they take a common-sense approach, while we prefer to pay over $3 trillion a year rather than take any real action, and let criminal lawyers (an appropriate title), find a legitimate reason for their existence.
