Jose Guerena

This is not a political blog, but if President Obama saw fit to comment on the Cambridge Police Department's handling of the Henry Louis Gates case, even going so far as to hold a conciliatory "Beer Summit" in his backyard in order to put the matter to rest, then he had damn well better address this story soon:

Iraq War Veteran, Jose Guerena, Killed by Arizona SWAT Team

If there's even a shred of truth to the increasingly detailed stories that are emerging around this tragedy, then it is absolutely shameful.  And I speak as a staunch supporter of the law and law enforcement personnel; and a former member of our county police department's advisory board.  Shameful.

Please spare a thought and/or prayer for Jose Guerena's widow and two young children this Memorial Day weekend.
