Sunday Morning Shows

Every Sunday morning I record as many of the news shows that I can. Priority is given to "Fox News Sunday" and I record the other shows as best I can. On ABC's "This Week" Sam Donaldson interviewed Portland, Ore., police chief Mark Kroeker on his department's refusal to cooperate with the FBI's request to interview certain individuals. Kroeker referred to various Oregon statutes which forbid police interviewing people who are not suspected of crimes. Kroeker referred to the Portland city attorney's opinion that these interviews were illegal under Oregon law, and so his hands were tied and he could do nothing. "We follow the law in Oregon," Kroeker said. Well, there's some debate about that. Donaldson dropped the ball by not challenging Kroeker with the opinion by Oregon's top law-enforcement officer, Attorney General Hardy Myers, that such interviews are, in fact, legal. Maybe Chief Kroeker should follow the legal opinions of the attorney general in determining what is and what is not allowed.
