Telling Us What’s Up With Former Cincinnatians
Nobody’s quite sure what’s happening with Cincinnati’s Ex Affirmative Action Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell ever since he was co-winner of The Eighth Annual Whistleblower Turkey Decorating Contest for Thanksgiving, where the person who was selected as the biggest turkey of the year would be shown with his head on the body of a turkey, but the man Blackwell replaced is making national news again.
Fourteen-Star flop James Craig, who fled to Detroit after initiating the downward spiral of the Cincinnati Police Department, now says he believes the number of armed citizens in his city would deter would-be terrorists from carrying out attacks similar to those in Paris for fear of return fire.
“A lot of Detroiters have CPLs (concealed pistol licenses), and the same rules apply to terrorists as they do to some gun-toting thug, Chief James Craig said, The Detroit News reported. “If you’re a terrorist, or a carjacker, you want unarmed citizens.”
In Detroit last year, 1,169 handgun permits were issued and more than 8,000 guns were registered with the police department. Statewide, more than 115,000 gun permits were issued, according to Michigan State Police and more than 30,000 Detroit residents are legally armed.
Although officials maintain there are no specific or credible threats, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security last week released a bulletin to 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide, warning police there could be attacks similar to the November 13 terrorist strikes in Paris.
Wouldn’t that mean Charlie Hassle’s Street Rescue Guy Buyback Program is going in the wrong direction? Shouldn’t we be arming the yoofs to patrol the Killing Fields of Over-The-Rhine and protect us from all those Murdering Muslim Terrorists Disguised As Syrian Refugees Mayor Cranley is inviting to Cincinnati.
Meanwhile at the Sanctuary for Stupidity at Cincinnati City Hall, The Windbag plans to introduce his “Guns For Thugs” program at Wednesday’s Clown-cil meeting. Wouldn’t you just love to see our Nine Fine Clowns debating that issue, especially after Council’s Budget and Finance Committee halted the purchase of police radios in the name of Political Correctness last week?
Council’s Budget and Finance Committee had been expected to approve the $5.4 million purchase of 1,546 police radios and accessories, but the issue was tabled after Clown-cil couldn’t come to a consensus – a move that stunned City and Police officials.
Our FOP Snitch (probably not Kathy Harrell), says those buffoons don’t understand anything about resourcing a law enforcement agency. The number of top-notch companies capable of producing integrated radio communications systems for law enforcement can be counted on one hand, and you wouldn’t need all the fingers. A local, minority-owned vendor? Who, one of the Rhyming Reverends? What’s next, seeing whether some local misunderstood yoofs can build firearms on the cheap to replace the S&W’s or electronic control weapons to replace the Tasers cops carry?
