Police ordered to run away from armed criminals in Los Angeles
The Coach's Team | 10/6/16 | Doug Book

In left-wing Los Angeles, where defending oneself with a firearm is strictly frowned upon by the upper crust (after all, that’s what highly paid body guards are for) it has now been decided that police officers must run away like frightened children rather than challenge anyone brandishing a deadly weapon. In short, officers of the Los Angeles Police Department—Angelino’s first and last line of defense in the MAY issue, concealed carry license State of California—have been instructed to allow armed lunatics to go their merry way, attacking defenseless citizens, before confronting and threatening them with potential harm!

Such was the decision last month of the Los Angeles Police Commission, a 5 member board appointed by the mayor. Composed of individuals with NO law enforcement experience, the Board of Police Commissioners "...is the head of the Los Angeles Police Department. They set the overall policy while the Chief of Police manages the daily operations of the Department and implements the Board’s policies and goals.”

The Board’s policy decision came about after “a female suspect, armed with an 8 to 9-inch knife, charged at officers, repeatedly ignored commands to stop, and was recorded yelling ‘shoot me’ as she swung her knife from side to side.” Both the officer whose life was being immediately threatened by the “suspect” and his partner, standing just a few feet away, shot her after she had rapidly closed the 70 foot distance between them and her blade to just 3 feet.

And no, there isn’t any dispute over the facts of the case. The Board agreed that videotaped evidence proved everything had happened in exactly the way officers had described.

So why would the Board demand that the officers involved be charged criminally, claiming quite incorrectly that they had violated department rules for the use of deadly...

JEEZ!! The LAPD used to be the most violent bunch of thugs on the block, even badder than the crips and bloods now they're a bunch of Sissies????

My dad told me something like this was bound to happen. First they come and disarm the American people and take away their guns, then they'll go after law enforcement and neuter them.

Then again, the police were never really dependable as a first line or last line of defense. They're too damn busy forming unions and citing people for victimless crimes in order to collect big bucks from taxpayers.

If you live in a city or state that wont let you be armed, get out and run for cover! The Dems are disarming the police and they are coming for us next!

Off topic, but I recently went to a bank and interacted with a teller. I had two goals: 1) Deposit a check 2) Order more checks.

The teller would NOT let me deposit a check. That's what the ATM is for.
The teller would NOT order checks for me. That's what the website is for.

I'm thinking: why does the bank have tellers?

This whole world makes no sense to me anymore.

Expect a mass exodus from the LAPD. With the level of training they got they can write their own ticket with any agency in the country. And in their new job they might actually be allowed to enforce the law.

Change banks, tell them why, and write a letter to the local paper as well.

The whole country has been cowed into a sissified, emotional, and just wimpy collection of touchy feely losers. When I see the films on WW2 i wonder if we have enough men left to filed that kind of military force again.

That’s crazy. It takes a certain type of person to be a good cop. They need that presumption of invulnerability. If you start trying to negate or remove that inner concept, you will have a completely different type of law enforcement. This type of training will get the officers killed. This is worse than not having any cops at all. It promotes bad behavior, because the bar has been lowered as to what is acceptable.

That is a bit of an exaggeration, I think.

CALIFORNIA:
  1. You may not own a gun.
  2. Police are ordered to run away from gun wielding assailants.
  3. Except, of course, YOU.
  4. PROFIT!

To pay Union dues, create requirements for cool tactical gear, and protection of government dignitaries.
