Why defend McCabe but blast city police?

No doubt The Baltimore Sun’s editorial board room is a gun-free zone because editorial-wise there is a lot of shooting yourselves in the foot. What is the difference between Andrew McCabe and the Baltimore City Police Department? Most likely, it is about politics, and not actual events (“McCabe firing: Witness intimidation?” March 19).

If President Donald Trump fired Mr. McCabe, the nation would be the first to know, but as I have in my real life, President Trump got stuck dealing with swampland all too much. You learn to relax, observe and understand what not to step on when crossing a swamp. Luckily like me, only our friends are able to laugh at our failure and it doesn’t cost us money. To me, Mr. McCabe talks like a criminal who says he got stuck into things and blames everyone else. Yet what is known publicly doesn’t add up to a few mistakes, but missteps in regards to feeling others are fools.

The FBI’s version of internal affairs recommended his firing, and it went up the chain, so he was fired. Providing false information, not being honest about the sources he used, a bad track record and also not being honest with what he actually knew to governing authorities. It’s a shame he wasn’t wearing a body camera. If Mr. McCabe had been a Baltimore police officer, you would be saying that the allegations require immediate action to remove him from dealing with the public and any case he was involved with would be dropped despite the detriment to Baltimore’s citizens who are victimized by him.

Well folks, this is regarding our nation.
