I sympathize with Mark Shurtleff's outrage over the way he claims a recent search warrant was served on his home and family. I would like to remind him that during the eight years he was the state's top law enforcement officer such searches were increasingly common and a number were conducted not only on suspected criminals but on the wrong people and some were far more violent than his family experienced.
Further problems included an unlawful shooting, the slow walking of investigations and the lack of punishment for offending officers, not to mention an officer citing arguably innocent people for the life-changing offense of DUI.
When he could have done something about these, Shurtleff apparently didn't. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
