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 will either have to be a great  marksman with a knife  or they will have to allow CC permits to law abiding citizens very soon.

 Their You GO  Chief Laner ,You unarm your Citizens  so now only the law abiding CRIMINALS have guns  so Hows is that working for YOU !!!!!!!. and now You want unarmed citizens to risk their own lives to take down armed murdering criminals that You armed. what are YOU nuts. I guess the lie that cops protect isn't going over very well  Yes. but i'm sure the murders love you. arm Your Citizens  Lanier.

That kind of thinking should be shared by all law enforcement, but I wonder what would happen if someone actually took her advice.  How many liberals would be up in arms, no pun intended, if someone actually shot one of the culprits?

CNN’s Anderson Cooper said during an interview with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that he found the demographic decline of white people “exciting”.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed that whites becoming a minority in America was inevitable and a positive development.

The Judge@V8POW

Anderson Cooper barely able to contain his excitement about Whites becoming a minority.

Not thrilled about being replaced in the country your ancestors founded: you're a "Supremacist"

Understand White People, you're already in a race war.

“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution. And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority,” he said.

The media has repeatedly asserted that even raising the “conspiracy theory” of “the great replacement” or the demographic decline of white people puts you on a par with mass shooters and terrorists.

However, it’s apparently completely fine to talk about the issue so long as you proclaim the demographic decline of whites to be a positive thing.
