How's that for a double standard?

I can't believe I forgot to make this comparison this morning.

"Father" Michael "Snuffy" Pfleger publicly threatens, on TV, in front of hundreds of witnesses, to "snuff out" not only a lawful businessman, but lawmakers with whom he disagrees, as well. What is the police response?

Riverdale police called the rally “peaceful” and said no investigation was warranted.
In contrast, when people send FAXes containing nary a threatening word to Commissar Senator Dan Kotowski, expressing displeasure with his unconstitutional agenda of civilian disarmament, a state police investigation (and intimidation campaign?) is immediately launched.

Ah--the naive fantasy of "equal protection under the law."

Yeah, but, see, Pfleger thought "snuff" meant to "expose." Because Catholic priests never hear the word "snuff" in context (Catholics are the ones who don't use candles, right?)

Seriously, I can't wait to read the FAXes. Maybe I'll look like a fool and Kotowski will be totally vindicated . . . . but I doubt it.
