D.C. police Chief Cathy Lanier urges public to ‘take down’ active gunman if they can

Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said that even before decriminalization took effect, police did not actively pursue many marijuana possession charges. "Officers for the last 20 years have avoided possession of marijuana arrests because they've not been prosecuted for many, many years," Chief Lanier said. (Associated Press) ** FILE **In a surprising comment, Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier is encouraging ordinary citizens to subdue or even kill active gunmen if they can as the “best option for saving lives before police can get there.”

During an interview Sunday on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Chief Lanier was asked what should people do if they are in the vicinity of an active shooter like the ones who terrorized Paris on Nov. 13.

“Your options are run, hide, or fight,” the D.C. police chief said. “If you’re in a position to try and take the gunman down, to take the gunman out, it’s the best option for saving lives before police can get there.”

The District for decades had outlawed handguns until the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the ban in 2008. Since then, city leaders have enacted restrictive laws that are still being challenged in court by gun owners and pro-gun activists.

Chief Lanier, who has enthusiastically supported the city’s efforts to limit handgun ownership, admitted that her suggestion for the public in the midst of an active gunman does not reflect the longstanding advice offered by many police officials around the country.

You bet. Run out there, point your finger at the terrorists and shout "BANG". Then see how fast they arrest you.

Ha ha ha. Right they were just trying to be politically correct. Definitely a sorry bunch.

She will LIKELY be fired, for using common sense.

prob. brelan 

Except...you don't take a body with only your hands to a gun fight.....silly loon still trying to restrict the 2nd Amendment. How does one take down and active shooter without a gun?????

The hight of hypocrisy !  And they wonder why people don't trust them ?

Exactly right! That's only common sense. Oh, wait....leftists have none. Never mind.

it's still better than in Paris, where the Mayor does not allow the local police to have guns..... this is how Charlie Hebdo happened. The policeman who was there to protect them didn't have any weapon on him... some of them could be alive today if liberals were not so stupid... Paris Mayor should resign.

Of course, she is correct.  DC citizens should VIOLATE THEIR GUN LAWS.  REALITY SINKS IN!  Its a matter of life and death!

The absolute height of hypocrisy!  This woman has been at the forefront demanding zero civilian gun ownership and then advocates that civilians "take down" terrorists.  With what, you idiot?  Bare hands against AK-47s and explosives?  Does she expect the criminal element who are still armed to step forward and oppose the terrorists?  That is true liberal nonsense from "la la land".

If we had this charge put forth to every citizen in the U.S.A we would see a different number of refugees wanting to come to this country and the ones who brave it anyway... well, the word would get around that it won't be pretty!

Reality of survival comes face to face with the delusional gun control mob. How do you like me now?...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
