DC Police Chief Encourages Taking Out Gunman As ‘Best Option’

Washington DC police chief Cathy Lanier is flipping the age-old advice given by law enforcement officers that recommends calling 911 and waiting for police response during an emergency. Because times have changed, she is recommending every one “take action” until police arrive.

      Police and armed forces on heightened alert… Yeah, sounds like the perfect time to knock over a bank.

    It’s almost like the bad guys know the population is trained to do squat.

    But she refuses to authorize any gun permits.

    A book written in 1999 was called “Call 911 and Die”. It detailed how long it takes the cops to respond, and how inept they were once they got there. Gun grabbers hated it, and still do.

    Can people take action if a Muslim student in high school brings in a BOMB ?
    Or should we just wait and see—because it might be a Hoax.

    With what you stupid twat? should they carry a rolled up newspaper? Issue the damn concealed carry permits and then you have a leg to stand on.

    Carrying guns in DC is hard to do.

    gosh, i love a good lookin’ woman in uniform ..

  • It’s annoying that she mentions guns specifically. After almost 10 years in DC, I can tell you that the majority of violent crimes there actually involve stabbings, hit and runs, and beatings. Gun crime is less common in the District.

    DC is very liberal so Lanier is actually just playing in to that by supporting the “gun violence is out of control” narrative. If you read the Washington Post they will make efforts to distort things to make it sound like gun violence is rising, but it’s actually lower than other kinds of crime.

    In my area –a random shooting pretty much means it was a Somalian Muslim . They will shoot any where at any time. It is expected .
    Not much point in the Cops responding. Load the wounded in the Ambulance and pretend to question all those Black Glowering faces. They won’t help .

    I wonder if Every time a Muslim shot a Non-Muslim if it would classify as a HATE crime.

    Oh—sorry it is only when White people shoot–even in self defence that it is a HATE crime.
