The breaking and beating down of America’s law enforcement officers continues right on schedule. Cops are now afraid to use their weapons when they should use them. The Obama Administration and the Press Corps finally have America’s police officers exactly where this President wants them.
ABC7Chicago reports that three Chicago Police Officers were hospitalized after dealing with a violent man who was apparently under the influence of drugs. One of the officers, a female, was mercilessly and severely beaten. She told her police superintendent that she was sure the suspect was going to kill her.
She was more afraid of the consequences she would face if she used her firearm to stop the beating than she was of dying. So, she took the beating and did not use her weapon, which was issued to her for defending herself and others in life-threatening situations.
What’s happening here is that America’s cops are in the same vulnerable position as American soldiers and Marines are when they come under fire overseas. They’re more afraid of being prosecuted by their own government if they do the right thing to save themselves than they are of dying. Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell wrote a book about that.
Here’s a bit from ABC’s report:
A Chicago police officer who is hospitalized after she was severely beaten said she was afraid to use her gun because of the scrutiny she would have faced, Supt. Eddie Johnson said.
On Wednesday morning, police responded to a car crash at Roosevelt and Cicero on the city’s West Side where officers encountered a man that police allege was violent and under the influence of drugs.
Three officers were hospitalized in the incident. One officer who was severely beaten told Supt. Johnson she was afraid for her life and afraid to use lethal force with all of the attention on the police department’s previous actions and fatal incidents.
“She thought she was going to die. She knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to, because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news,” Supt. Johnson said…
If the officer had shot her assailant, it’s a sure bet that the entire city of Chicago would have erupted in riots. The Press Corps, Black Lives Matter, and the Obama Administration would immediately have taken to the airwaves to condemn the shooting, before the investigation could even get under way.
This whole scenario is right out of Vladimir Lenin’s plan.
So, here you are, ladies and gentlemen. As a cop I dealt with violent, drug and alcohol crazed, out of control people on many occasions. I was in the business for twenty years. Most citizens have absolutely no idea how difficult it is to subdue someone who is impervious to pain and has super-human strength given him by the drugs he has on board – and does not want to be taken into custody.
All those fancy arrest and control tactics you learned in the police academy? You can throw that martial arts stuff out the window when the street fight begins. It’s brute force and strength that will carry the day. Fights are extremely brutal. People get killed in fist fights. And sometimes a firearm has to be used in order to save one’s own life.
So who will you call when violence suddenly and unexpectedly erupts in your neighborhood?
You’d better hope that your cops are still doing their jobs when that happens.
Lastly, here’s the real laugher, if such an idea is laughable in this terrible situation:
ABC7 reached out to the Fraternal Order of Police but did not get a comment.
Gee. I wonder why.
