Rose-Colored Stupidity

Brian Nichols, the accused rapist who murdered a judge and two other people yesterday at a Fulton County courtroom and who is still at large, apparently was being escorted–without handcuffs–by a lone female deputy when he went on his deadly rampage. Whatever else this case represents, it’s hard to resist the conclusion that political correctness combined with general stupidity played a role. The attorney for Nichols said, “Even the larger deputies I don’t think would be any match for Brian Nichols.” Those who insist a woman can do any job a man can do are ignoring physical reality and shouldn’t complain when big, burly thugs like Nichols refuse to go along with their rose-colored version of reality.
