Violating the Marine Code of Ethics: Sen. Jim Shockley

by jhwygirl

John Cochran, of St. Regis had some pretty harsh words for Sen. Jim Shockley.

Both Cochran and Shockley served as Marines…and both are acquainted with each other through the American Legion.

Cochran went and did something that he’s never done before – and it was to honor another fellow Marine, Bob Baxter, the man who died while waiting for a court to clear the way for the death with dignity he so very much desired.

Cochran drove from St. Regis to Helena to testify before the Senate Judiciary committee on SB116, the bill from Rep. Greg Hinkle that would have prohibited physician-assisted suicide.

This bill was tabled in committee, and later died with a blast on the Senate floor.

Sen. Shockley is an attorney. Aren’t attorneys supposed to tell the truth? I guess that doesn’t apply when wearing a legislative hat. Must be written as some sort of exception to the Montana State Bar ethics code there. Same with the Marine “semper fidelis”/legislature thing.

Legislature trumps everything. That’s easier than Rock Paper Scissors.

    and john ends with this:

    Citizens should be able to trust the word of the people they elect to public office and I am deeply disappointed this man did not keep his world to me.
