July 11, 2106--Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, Dallas . . .

There are no adequate words.

Five Dallas policemen massacred, Alton Sterling shot by police in Baton Rouge, and, streamed live on Facebook, there was the murder by a policeman of Philandro Castile in Falcon Heights, MN.

All in less than a week.

Even our eloquent president could not find anything truly meaningful to say other than express hurt and outrage.

But someone not directly involved managed to find a way to chime in--William Johnson, executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations. The national association for police labor unions.

On Fox News (where else) he said that there is "a war on cops" and that the Obama administration was to blame for what he labelled "appeasement" of those who attack the police.

I suppose in America even he is entitled to his rancid opinion.

But while he is assigning responsibility, he forget to assign blame to the shooters in Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, and to too many other places to mention.

To the best of my knowledge in all these cases the shooters were policemen who, it might be said, are appeased by Johnson's organization.

William Johnson
