Who the hell is Scott Knight, anyway? Evidently, he's the Chief of Police of a little town, Chaska, MN, and he got trotted out for the Congressional Hearings.
Over the years I've worked small towns and I've gotten a lot of good information from small town cops. However, listening to Chief Knight last night on CSpan, I've never heard worst testimony from a sitting police chief. A little Googling shows me that Chief Knight is the firearms chairman of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and they've issued a press release supporting President Obama's over-reach.
He's wrong on almost ever level, and he's evidently a trained supporter that can be trotted out for supporting administration proposals. I'd love to sit down for an hour with him and talk to him about his proposals.
Oh, and while I'm at it, Chief Knight, I really loved your uniform. Evidently, the Chief of a small town needs four stars on his shoulder. That's the first indication that you have an ego problem. You've promoted yourself to Frigadier Greneral and you're trying to impose your short-sighted vision on the rest of the world, hoping that the stars on your jacket lend you credence. They don't. They only make you look pathetic.
