Bleeding Hearts = Bleeding Victims

Last year, I wrote:

The police could sweep the city and arrest every single piece-of-shit criminal lowlife therein, but if a sympathetic, bleeding heart judge is gonna send them back out on the streets with a gentle slap on the wrist, it won't do dick to lower the violent crime rate or improve the quality of life for the people of Boston.

From Michelle McPhee in today's Boston Herald:

Want to know why teenagers are brazenly carrying guns - and using them - on Boston streets?

Ask Roxbury District Court Judge R. Peter Anderson, who just this week released on bail a teenager witnesses identified as the gunman who opened fire outside the crowded Breezeway barroom on Blue Hill Avenue Sunday night.

The bail for that suspect, who was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after he allegedly shot a 20-year-old man in the back:

A measly $250.

That’s despite the fact that the suspect, Lyndon Scott, 18, was already out on bail in connection with an assault and battery case on which he was busted in Roxbury earlier this year, prosecutors said.

Yet, according to the heroes of the "progressive" anti-gun movement, like Tom Menino and John Rosenthal, the gang-related violence plaguing the streets of America's inner-cities is the fault of other states' less restrictive firearms laws and the millions of law-abiding gun owners who have joined the NRA to help preserve the right to bear arms of all Americans.

Now, I don't want to condone violence on this site, but if any of you should bump into Menino or Rosenthal on the street today, and find yourself overcome with the desire to kick them square in the nuts, I could be talked into looking the other way for a minute or two.

Every second they spend trying to restrict the rights of law-abiding Americans is a second that could be spent trying to figure out ways to keep violent offenders off the street.

At least, we know where their priorities lie.

And this year's winner in the "World's Biggest Non-Surprise" competition:

Anderson was appointed to the bench in 1990, when he was 47 and a resident of Newton. At that time, he was the director of the Greater Boston Legal Services Program.

Four years earlier, the Governor’s Council rejected Anderson as a judicial nominee, but confirmed him after then Gov. Michael S. Dukakis resubmitted his name for a judgeship.

The Dukakis Doctrine continues to bear fruit on the streets of Massachusetts to this very day. Such a proud legacy he left behind, indeed.

And, since we're already in nut-kicking mode, feel free to do the same to anyone who tries to tell you that Mitt Romney was the worst governor the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has ever had.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go put on my rapid-fire, .50-caliber, Saturday Night Special, sniper assault pistol and run some errands.
