Today\’s quote comes to us from Everett Mitchell, the Director of Community Relations for the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

Please sit down before reading it, and be sure not to be drinking anything you wouldn\’t want sprayed on your computer monitor.

Ok?  All settled in?  Then here it is:

“I just don\’t think that they should be prosecuting cases … for people who steal from Wal-Mart. I just don\’t think that, right?  I don\’t think [with] Target or all them other places, them big box stores that have insurance, they should be using justification, the fact that people steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police practices, right?”

In other words, a big box store that has insurance should not expect people to pay for the goods they walk out with.  I mean why should all them big-box stores use stealing as justification to start engaging in aggressive police practices, right? 

This is an employee of a UNIVERSITY????????????

I award Everett Mitchell Quote Of The Day honors for giving us a one-lesson course in how a complete idiot with absolutely no morality or common sense expresses himself. 

How proud UW – Madison must be to have a Director of Community Relations like him.

Just wondering, though:  does Mr. Mitchell think it is justifiable to police people who steal the school\’s lab equipment?    I mean some of them things come in big boxes, right?
