Fear Not! Obama's Prosecutors Are on the Job

Recently, a little-reported yet extraordinary decision was rendered by a U.S. appeals court. The meager media mention given the case was laced with levity due to its subject matter. But it was anything but funny, for it shed immense light on the prosecutorial priorities of the Obama administration and on liberal values regarding crime.

President Obama frequently has been criticized for not enforcing the law. Attorney General Holder has been likewise criticized.

Well, we can take comfort. Obama's judges and prosecutors are on the job.

Yes, it is true that on November 5, 2009, Nidal Hasan was captured red-handed in the act of committing multiple murders, leaving absolutely no doubt about his guilt. And yes, it took nearly four years to commence his trial, with a prospect of many more years' delay yet to come.

And yes, we are unlikely to see the Obama administration prosecute any of its own appointees involved in numerous serious scandals.

However, the conscientious diligence of Obama appointees cannot be doubted. Just ask Robert S. Strong. On May 24, 2011, this 50-year-old, as a result of taking 13 medications for heart and kidney problems, had a sudden attack of uncontrollable diarrhea in the Portland, Maine federal courthouse. In trying to clean himself, he left a mess on the floor of a small bathroom that was cleaned by personnel paid to -- clean bathrooms.

Nevertheless, within three days -- three days! -- Strong was charged with three separate offenses: willfully damaging federal property, creating a nuisance, and creating a hazard. With a speed rarely, if ever, seen in cases involving premeditated brutality, this prematurely sick man was tried, convicted 113 days after the incident, and sentenced to seven days in jail for a "crime" committed 18 months after the massacre by Hasan.

Nothing like a quick investigation, indictment and conviction. I wonder if the investigations of Fast & Furious, Benghazi and the IRS will ever meet the criteria of importance related to the heinous crime committed by Mr. Robert Strong?
