California Attorney General: Chief of Energy Company Should Be Jailed, Raped NewsMax.com Friday, June 8, 2001 The growing impression that the once-proud Democratic Party has fallen into the hands of socialist thugs got a boost from California Attorney General Bill Lockyer when he told reporters he would like to see Enron Chairman Kenneth Lay locked in a cell and raped by another inmate. "I would love to personally escort Lay to an 8-by-10 cell that he could share with a tattooed dude who says, 'Hi, my name is Spike, honey,' " Lockyer said at a news conference. Lockyer’s incredible comment was in line with Gov. Gray Davis’ attempts to blame California’s energy crisis on oil companies and other energy producers instead of the state’s self-destructive policies that prevented the building of electricity-producing facilities and banned construction of nuclear power plants. The outrageous comment shocked the Cato Institute’s Tom G. Palmer, who said Lockyer should be "removed from his office of public trust." Writing in Wednesday’s Los Angeles Times, Palmer charged that Locker, "as the chief law enforcement officer of the largest state in the nation, … not only has admitted that rape is a regular feature of the state's prison system, but also that he considers rape a part of the punishment he can inflict on others … and because he has publicly stated that he would like to personally arrange the rape of a Texas businessman who has not even been charged with any illegal behavior. "Lockyer's remarks reveal him to be an authoritarian thug, someone wholly unsuited to holding an office of public trust," Palmer wrote, adding that "Lockyer’s comments indicate that he thinks that "rape is an appropriate part of the system of punishments he administers." "Should it matter that Lay is a businessman?” he asked. "Imagine the outcry if the head of Enron were female. What would Lockyer's fellow Democrats have said to that?" Palmer charged that Lockyer and Davis "seem to think that the best way to keep the lights on is to threaten electricity producers with brute force, rather than to offer to pay competitive rates in competitive markets. "Are energy producers to blame for California's energy problems? No. Bad policies, including rigid controls on retail prices of electricity, are the cause of the problem, not the people who generate energy. Scapegoating producers and threatening them with violence is an old ploy of authoritarians. Californians should not stand for it." Palmer concluded by disagreeing with a spokesman for Lay who said that Lockyer's comments did not merit a response. "The spokesman is wrong," Palmer said. "Lockyer's remarks merit public disgrace and removal from office. After all, rape is not a form of legal justice in America – is it?" A product that might interest you: Have an Opinion About This?

I've read it already. Good article. The problem is that those who can boot him, think like him. Fanatics stick together. Their faith in what they believe will always defy logic, reason and any attempt at common sense.

The cities on the coast should fall into the sea. I wish Chicago would fall into the lake.

Not a chance. The Democrats are REAL tight here in Calif. It will just be swept under the rug and ignored. No big deal.

Looks like some of you freedom lovers are closet thought police. Your "outrage" sounds strangely familiar.

uncle buck, thought police is one thing, this is another. Instead of admitting the real fault of this, this crud is blaming everyone else and advocating violence towards someone who disagrees. Sound familiar? This is the way the anti's and liberals in general have been acting for years. If a Republican or Libertarian had said this, there would be a huge uproar. It's about hypocrisy, not thought control!

If I were you all I would call the cops on him...oh wait a minute...he is in charge of the cops! A word to the out of state electricity providers: SHUT IT DOWN, SHUT IT ALL DOWN UNTIL LOCKYER IS EITHER REMOVED FROM OFFICE OR RESIGNS. And it would do some good depriving starbucks from the goatee heads.
