A pleasant surprise

I was rolling around the Net this afternoon checking blogs when I noticed that Mark, a blogger who kindly refers readers to me, has found a true unicorn:

A blog written by a Chicago cop who believes in law-abiding citizen carry of firearms, documents the criminal and the crooked among his co-workers, and both chronicles and decries the rampant corruption and incompetence of the leadership of that city. It's very well written, to boot. Here's part of their commentary on the Richard Mell debacle:

"We are of the opinion that registration is a pretext to confiscation at some point. Daley has no business in our homes, our papers or our possessions."

How very, very refreshing.

The officer has a monumental job in front of them, but I salute their taking on this most important of tasks, and it shows that even among Boss Daley's shock troops there are at least some good, service-oriented cops (to borrow my friend Joel's phrase) who wish to help their fellow citizens instead of rule them.
