    We are talking about the executive branch, its original and primary purpose is law enforcement, from enforcing EPA regs to Medicare fraud, to writing rules about how the law is to be carried out.

    The President did not need to announce a policy - or investigative unit or even specify the amount of work/money going into this crap (assuming that they are cowards politically - and they are inexcusably so), they can do it - - - and SHOULD be doing it on the sly.

    The FBI, the FTA, etc can establish inner units that are secret - the reason to keep them secret is so as not to tip off the bad guys.  So, its not only cowardness, its simply bad policy thought.

    If we spent 1% of what we spend on military drones flying over sand in another part of the world (where brown people live) so as to prevent 7 people from being killed - - we would be saving MORE American lives per dollar and do so w/o discriminating who gets investigated on skin color.

    Total Fail.  Total tragedy.  IF IF IF we are going to have insane gun laws, can we not at least police the demonstratably insane more effectively?

    My REC button is not working. I hate not recing comments/diaries - I feel so self-absorbed and I hate that people think that I am just following their comments. Tech is notified, but I am so embarrassed that I had to write this.

      4CasandChlo, you really hit the nail on the head with this one.

      Best question of the day this:

      "IF we are going to have insane gun laws, can we not at least police the demonstrably insane more effectively?"

      One I'd like to hear the President and his people answer.
