Gregoire calls killer's field trip 'unfathomable' (Barf Alert!)

SEATTLE -- Gov. Chris Gregoire said it is "unfathomable" that an insane killer who spent three days on the run was taken on a field trip to a county fair. Phillip Arnold Paul was returned to Eastern State Hospital on Monday, one day after he was captured on a rural road during a manhunt involving dozens of law enforcement officers.

"I cannot understand why anybody would be taken on an outing, with the history of this individual, to a family day at a county fair," Gregoire said on Tuesday. "The fact that that happened, yes, is embarrassing to me and to the state. It's a wake-up call."

She would not speculate on what disciplinary action, if any, would be taken against those involved, but said all options are on the table.

You're a real cool breeze Haywire! You're shocked by this? You've known all along that departments like DHS is a disaster! TAKE A HIKE!

Didn’t Grigore steal the last election or last two election? She/he whatever it is knows all about criminal behavior.

Why the barf alert when the gov is spot on? Why in the heck would anyone think it was a good idea to take a guy like that on a field trip?

Shackle him to a board at the county fair. Cover him with balloons. Provide the fair goers with poison darts and let the the games begin!

It is like a pilot safely bailing out and saying as he lets his plane crash into a elementary school that he is embarrassed.

He was in a hospital, not a prison. Trying to rehabilitate a criminal with doctors calling the shots will result in situations like this happening while they try and re-socialize him to a life outside of the hospital.

Either give people like this a life sentence so rehabilitation isn’t necessary or bring back the lobotomy if he can never be trusted around people.

Why?? Because The governor is a democrat and it’s her party that runs the state and her party that thinks it’s only fair a criminal like this POS should be taken out for an outing. Basically, anything that happens until her regime, is HER fault.

Ah! Yours is a generic condemnation of liberalism as personified by Gregoire. All liberals attempts as social engineering are doomed to failure. DHS should be eliminated as should the Departments of Energy and Education (and a bunch of others).

True... much like those who should have been holding Acorn to responsibility, the policy is see-no-evil till the poop strikes the propeller in an embarrassing way that might actually cost votes.

Should she quit... or should she stay there as the face of the jackass party all the better to remind voters to try the GOP next time?

The doctors are likely the least part of it. The social worker hive carries much more clout. Even the non partisan National Alliance for the Mentally Ill recently lamented how cuckoo the Washington state system is. It’s impossible to get an acute sufferer from mental illness into a hospital there unless a bee from the social worker hive gives her blessing. All this was done in the name of civil rights but what actually happens is that street people languish without treatment until something horrible like a murder happens.

I agree this is gratuitous barf. Sometimes it seems we like to wallow in barf.

Is there an election coming up out there? Maybe ACORN needed to get him to the polls.

I went to a Seattle Mariners/New York Yankees game in Seattle with family and afterwards there were police cars all over the place. This was why:

The guy that stabbed him was a mental patient that had been released by some judge....

Chrissie probably would have approved these field trips had she been asked. "Oh, yes, the inmates should be allowed to interact with nature and their fellow human beings! It will help rehabilitate them."

(She looks like Hillary's little sister.)

“Hart said Ho has a history of violence and mental illness, and that his mental condition causes him to be extremely afraid and suspicious when he is not taking medication.”

And he was walking around in downtown Seattle?

Gregoire got elected over Dino Rossi with the help of ACORN. Rossi beat her twice in recounts but thanks to dead people voting three times and other crappola, she won. That’s when the recounting stopped. The FBI should have investigated but did not.

Starting with a long boring lecture by Mike Dukakis on the perils of furlows and killers. (granted, any speech by Mike Dukakis is long and boring)

Fraudoire stole the first one, back in ‘04, after losing on election night and the first recount, it took until the second “recount” to manufacture enough fraudulent votes to enshrine Fraudoire in an unbeatable position. That was proved in the “rematch” of ‘08, which was, as expected, a laugher in favor of the Fraud. Once a ‘Rat gets in, it is very hard to dig out.

My guess is that Fraudoire will appoint a "Blue Ribbon Commission" to "study" the problem and make "recommendations". Maybe Fraudoire can dig up Sam Reed to do another term as Fraudoire's Commissar.

Because she’s condemning a problem she and her cronies created through their policies and political beliefs regarding crime and punishment.
