It seems like it's being used as a way to make a statement preceding your suicide. The suicide of a perpetrator doesn't seem to be the result of his or her being trapped and cornered at the end of a rampage. It seems instead to be a part of the "plan." If the suicide part doesn't work ... Fine. The killer can enjoy the notoriety. Guns didn't get the publicity and worship in the Fifties. We always thought there might be a gun tucked away in a neighbor's lamp table drawer, but didn't imagine guns as anything other than cops' weapons, Ww2 service revolvers, and hunting rifles locked in a gun cabinet in the den. These days, they're the center of many unstable and/or unhappy people's fantasy lives. The whole business of public killings has wormed its way into our "idea-ation" -- kill a bunch, "Rambo style," make your statement, then kill yourself. We haven't seen the end of it.

Connolly's prowess goes back to his Siena days ... last century ... class of 1966, I believe. I've been seeing his scratch scores on the Gazette sports page for many, many years and my jaw has been dropping since at least ... well, some time late in the last century. Great golfer and a great human being. Best wishes for continued success!

Elected law enforcement officers are elected to enforce the law. They are not elected to show up at rallies in uniform to protest laws or to urge ignoring them. Early in his first term, President Clinton (not my favorite president) got the message of insubordination across quite clearly to a high ranking American military office in Europe who made disparaging remarks about Clinton's qualifications as commander-in-chief. It is not within the average citizen's power to impeach or remove from office an elected law enforcement figure who supports breaking a law, but it is within our power to recognize his behavior as reprehensible, disgraceful, and a clear violation of his oath of office. The word "treason" is too strong because his behavior is not on an international stage ... nonetheless, there is some validity in applying it to Lorey's behavior.
