In a euphemism-heavy Post story on the "personal difficulties" imposed on the Prince William police chief charged with enforcing the "crackdown on illegal immigrants" (otherwise known as a nativist backlash which makes us all fondly recall great moments as 'Mericans, such as the anti-Guinea laws of a bygone era) the reporter noted, in the lead, that the police chief was forced to seek solace from his immigrant head-busting day job... in a blue grass show.
Then said chief returned to his job, "Struggling to maintain the simple, honored traditions of police work..." enforcing a law which requires police to check the legal status of any criminal suspect, whether arrested or not, if "There is reason to think suspect may be in the country unlawfully."
Sure, cynics may think that means the lil' music lover's job is to target brown, beige or tan "suspects" who wander our streets uncharged - yet - with any crime. But these cynics MUST be forgetting the criminal wave of pretty pink Serbs and Croats presumably clogging the shit out of the streets of Prince William County.
Hope Lucinda Williams made him feel better. If not, then maybe he was comforted by all the other police chiefs who, and I really am quoting from the damn story, "Whispered in his ear that they liked the way he was handling illegal immigration enforcement."
I guess they would speak up, but people might take it the wrong way.
