Louisiana U.S. Senator David Vitter Reacts to Connecticut School Shootings, Mark McCabe Arrest [INTERVIEW]

david vitter

Louisiana U.S. Senator David Vitter was a guest on KEEL Morning News today. Among the topics we discussed was the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

Vitter said that like everyone else, he’s having a hard time wrapping his head around the whole incident. He explained how he’s handling the situation with his own kids.

“First of all, we haven’t dwelled on the story,” he said. “We’ve talked about it and said there’s real evil in the world, and there are some just crazy crazy people, and some things are just beyond explanation or understanding.”

He also talked about a bizarre turn of events for Mark McCabe, who was recently released from a South Sudan prison. Now, the Slidell, Louisiana man’s been arrested — accused of taking illegal kickbacks in Afghanistan in exchange for giving subcontractors work.

Vitter said he believes our justice system will work that out one way or the other.

“That’s a whole lot different than being detained without probable cause, without any evidence, by south Sudanese security thugs and being thrown in a hellatious prison, denied heart medication, being beaten up,” he said.
