Well there are the two recent stories about the ridiculous attempt to shove this Bruce McKay Highway bill down the throats of people in the North Country. Note that none -- I repeat NONE -- of the sponsors are even from North Country. Last year that lying, deceitful sponsor Martha McLeod tried to run the same game, ignoring her constituents and dealing behind the back of the Franconia Recovery and Reconciliation Committee. Her bill failed and she failed to win her Senate bid, thank goodness she is OUT OF OFFICE.
I issued my comments in this post and in this post that will be going out this weekend to the sponsors involved, including Robert Letourneau, with whom I wrestled over Martha's attempt last year. Run a word search for his name on this blog and see what you get. The text of the bill is in the comments. Bruce McKay did not "die in the line of duty," he died on a frolic and detour, during a dereliction of his pursuit and OC spray directives fueled out of unlawful antipathy for all things Miller and Kenney, such as the time he tried to give Bode a speeding ticket based on hearsay.
For you folks writing your lawmakers you can cite to these fifteen (15) points of light that constitute Bruce McKay's real legacy in the North Country. Senator Robert Letourneau is well aware of ALL OF THIS but he went right on ahead and sponsored this bill yet again. Query will he and the others, driven by deals with the Chiefs of Police try this every year? If they do, they will meet the same resistance every year, you better believe THAT.
As noted in this video, Bruce McKay was lucky to have lived as long as he did, when the locals told me
"If it hadn't have been Liko Kenney it would have been someone else."
Want more? Watch him OC Spray Sarah as he violated her Due Process rights. And don't forget the OC Spray at Profile that sent an innocent girl to the hospital, read my interview with Ryan Hartford about that right here.
Now I do know a few things about sponsorship of reasonable legislation: Senator Bruce Tarr (R-Mass) just filed "Robert Taylor's law" 2 weeks ago, the bill I conceived in honour of a kind and gentle man who should not have died in an uninspected building with questionable egress from his apartment in Gloucester, Massachusetts last year. I am a co-sponsor of that legislation, yah.
