A Crime Not a "Prank"

The Journal Sentinel editorial board buried the lede in their comment on the tire slashing charges. At the top they called the slashings an "election day prank." Only in the middle of the editorial do they label the crimes exactly what they were--voter supression.

The board also has lots of faith in E. Michael McCann. They write that he has a "well-earned reputation for honesty and dispassion." He also has a reputation for plea-bargaining. The Journal Sentinel editorial board is silent about reducing the charges.
