Meet Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich

Were that it were a happier occasion to introduce him to you, but in the aftermath of the recent school shooting at Freeman High School in Spokane, Washington, Sheriff Knezovich held a press conference where he spoke candidly and thoughtfully.  I don't agree with everything he said, but he seemed refreshingly honest and considered in his speaking, and spoke the truth on many things.  Perhaps someday he might consider running for a higher office.

It's a twenty two minute video, but there seemed to be value in most all of it, so I did not opt for edited versions.  Some of the answers to the press questions were particularly excellent.

Thanks for posting that. Listening to the Sheriff speak was like a return to sanity.

Calls to the media to be more conscious of their responsibility and role in maintaining the conditions for republican self-government have not yet worked. Still, it's worth saying.

I like seeing people rise to the occasion and speak like leaders in a time of crisis.
