-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23,1987-1 1 urger backs Bork for court WASHINGTON (AP) — Former phief Justice Warren E. Burger, fcppearing on behalf of Supreme Court minee Robert H. Bork, told the .riate Judiciary Committee today he as never seen a confirmation hearing 'with more hype and more lisinformation." Burger, in an unusual appearance for j former justice, said he initially had no plans to testify for Bork. ' But he added that "when the opposi lion mounted, I sent a message that I »"ould be available." "I have watched these processes •since I was a student in law school. I •don't think there has ever been one with Itnore hype and more disinformation •than what I have observed in recent [days," Burger said. I '. He said that some previous nominees I who were rejected turned out to be lijualified, and the country realized it I later. He specifically mentioned Clc- I mem Haynesworth, a nominee of Presi- I dent Nixon, who also named Burger to I (he court. The white-haired Burger also said that positions taken by nominees earlier in their careers are no guide to what ! they would do on the court. On Tuesday, the committee heard [ from legal scholars both praising and criticizing Bork and from a prominent author and an artist who said Bork's elevation to the Supreme Court would ! jeopardize their freedom to write and paint what they please. Writer William Styron and artist Robert Rauschenbcrg joined a score of Teens shot in head witnesses appearing for or against Bork on Tuesday. Their pleas for artistic freedom gave the Senate Judiciary Committee a brief respite from the legal scholars, including Bork, who have dominated the week-old hearings thus far. Styron and Rauschenbcrg were followed by representatives of the nation's police officers. They testified Bork would be good for law enforcement' because he supports the death penalty and would not let criminals free on a technicality. More opponents and supporters of Bork were due to testify today. Also supporting Bork on Tuesday was Carla Hills, secretary of housing and urban development in the Ford administration. She said Bork's opponents "used highly selective quotations and skewed tabulations of his opinions to brand him anti-labor, anti-First Amendment, anti-feminist, and in particular, anti-the social objective of the writer." The anti-Bork forces had their own legal expert, Harvard professor Laurence Tribe, who said none of the 103 past and present justices shares Bork's "fundamentally narrow view of liberty."

The anti-Bork forces had their own legal expert, Harvard professor Laurence Tribe, who said none of the 105 past and present justices shares Bork's "fundamentally narrow view of liberty." Styron has published five novels, including "Sophie's Choice" and "The Confessions of Nat Turner," which won a Pulitzer Prize. He appeared as a member of the executive board of PEN American Center, an organization of poets, playwrights, essayists, editors, novelists and translators. The author cited Bork's 1971 article in which he said only political speech deserved constitutional protection. Bork told the committee last week he long ago abandoned that view and now believes many types of speech should be protected. The author said he was disturbed that Bork did not address himself, in a record five days of testimony, "to the existence of, or necessity. for, First Amendment protection for.-an undefined category of non-obscene speech, which some might see as provocative." Parolee Suspected kidnapper shot LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who bolted from police seeking to question him in the kidnap-slaying of a 14-year-old girl and the wounding of her friend was himself in critical condition today after being shot' by an officer. Roland Norman Comtois, 57, was shot twice Tuesday after scaling a barbed wire- topped wall and sprinting away from officers investigating the weekend abduction, said police spokesman Lt. Dan Cookc. He was in critical condition at County- USC Medical Center after surgery, Officer Jim Farris said today. "He will be booked on murder charges as soon as he's physically able to be booked," said Officer Mike Schwchr. "There's no question he will be booked." Meanwhile, authorities continued to search for a woman they say lured the two girls into a motor home in the affluent San Fernando Valley suburb of Chatsworth. The girls were walking from one of their homes to another near midnight Friday when the woman approached them and said the motor home had engine trouble. They were lured inside, kidnapped, then shot about an hour later and left for dead in an abandoned car in a remote canyon. Police have refused to say if they were molested, or to speculate publicly on a motive. The 13-year-old girl who survived the attack has identified Comtois from a photo, said Lt. William Hall of the Los Angeles Police Department's officer- involved shooting team. Authorities also said he resembled a composite drawing of the killer, and that his small motor home was similar to the one the girl described. Killed was Wendy Masuhara of Chatsworth. The 13-year-old, whose name has been withheld by police to protect her, remains under guard in an undisclosed hospital with wounds in her hand and neck. Comtois was approached Tuesday by two officers sent to a neighborhood near Dodger Stadium known as Elysian Valley Tuesday to check a report ofa motor home and man matching descriptions circulated, Farris said. Comtois bolted, scaled a 12-foot-tall, barbed wire-topped wall with the help of some metal drums and ran along the top of the concrete culvert that holds the Los Angeles River, he said. "Officer (Daniel) Labrada climbed the same 12-foot wall and became entangled in the barbed wire," Farris said. "Officer Labrada, fearing that the suspect would make good his escape, became involved in an officer-involved shooting," he said, meaning he shot the running man. Comtois collapsed and rolled down the concrete slope toward the river, and was taken into custody. California law allows officers to shoot to stop a fleeing felony suspect. drivers ORLAND (AP) — A parolee is in jail for allegedly impersonating a California Highway Patrol officer, stopping motorists and lecturing them about driving too fast. Anthony Gaylen Robbins, 27, of Orlarid, used a small, revolving red light mounted on his dashboard to pull over drivers on Interstate 5 said CHP Sgt. Jerry Jones in a report published Wednesday. Robbins didn't wear a uniform telling motorists he was off duty or working undercover, and sometimes carried a 3-foot-long billy club, Jones said. Jones said Robbins, who was on parole for assault with a deadly weapon, let the drivers go after lee luring them. He told them: 'You're going too fast; slow it .down.'/' Five drivers, stopped last Wed nesday and Thursday on northbound 1-5 • between Willows and Orland, became suspicious and called the CHP because the impersonator "just seemed unprofessional" Jones said. Robbins was arrested Monday on suspicion of impersonating a police office and other, unrelated charges, including grand theft and receiving stolen property.
