Letter: Do politicians ever think?

Businessman taking notes and planning in a meeting

With the recent shooting by a radical left-wing terrorist from Illinois of Republican Steve Scalise and others, and with the rapid response by the Capitol police, who were able to rapidly prevent wholesale murder, one has to think back to recent history and the "Pig" painting (hate speech?) that was hung in the Capitol by another radical left-winger, Missouri Rep. William Lacy Clay who represents St. Louis, Mo. (1st District).

It makes one wonder if he has changed his tune in respect to the police and the very difficult job that they have to do on a daily basis, or if he is still a cop hater.

Or he is talking out of the other side of his mouth like a lot of politicians these days are known to do?
