Massachusetts, You Say?

Some (R) candidate for President used to be Governor of Massachusetts.

McKay is the young father who, seeing a local druggie breaking into his truck and stealing the tools he uses to pay the bills, confronted him, subdued him and held him for the police. When the police arrived, they found the bad guy had a knife, a billy club and — thanks to the unarmed McKay — a broken jaw.

Instead of thanking McKay for helping get an armed criminal off the streets, Swampscott officials charged him with a felony. As a Swampscott police spokesman said at the time, “We don’t urge anybody to fight back. We want them to call us.”

OK, then.

There's a bit more to the story, which is significant, at Paco's place.

The cops were stupid. There are stupid cops in every locale. So what has any of this got to do with Romney?
