Wrong priorities


President Obama's Department of Justice recent criticism of the Seattle Police Department seems to reflect a new enthusiasm to go after those who are attempting to protect the public safety and enforce our laws dealing with illegal drugs, voter fraud and illegal immigration.

It's unfortunate they don't have the same zeal concerning those who are attempting to shut down ports, obstruct traffic, confiscate parks and generally raise havoc.
