Patterico's Pontifications

PHONY MAHONY

Filed under: Crime — Patterico @ 6:17 pm

I attended the funeral of murdered LAPD Officer Ricardo Lizarraga today. It was very moving, and difficult to sit through. I felt I owed it to the men and women on the Los Angeles Police Department to show my respect.

I was a little amazed, however, to hear Cardinal Roger Mahony pontificating about how we need to work to fight crime in the city. He’s right, of course, but I couldn’t help but notice a large flashing sign over his head that said “HYPOCRITE!” when he urged citizens to help the police fight crime, by coming forward as witnesses — and by providing all relevant information that might help court cases against criminals.

Hey, Roger! Wouldn’t such information include the church records on pedophile priests? You know — the records that the District Attorney’s Office has subpoenaed from you, but which you have resisted turning over?

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

  1. Another relevant item: immigration status.

  2. Police are not allowed to use immigration status or inquire about it, while at the same time the streets are filled with illegal alien criminals.
