For those who are grounded in the concept of “rule of law”, thus, evincing respect for the laws of the land, it is especially galling to internalize that the aforementioned – as defined by western norms – is dead and buried. Stick a fork in it.
And ever since the ascension of the Lawbreaker-in-Chief, the amount of lawbreaking through “legal” entities has been astonishing. Mind numbing.
Let us commence our tortuous journey within, and take due note of what the chief law enforcer of the land really thinks about “law and order”, as Eric Holder runs a completely lawless AG’s office !
Not unlike all revolutionaries, the Islamist-leaning side of Eric Holder bellied up to invoke/institute blasphemy laws in contravention of U.S. Constitutional-based underpinnings – stealthily. Say what?
Hardly content with the above anti-American edicts, Holder & gang push forward with an Omerta: the (“legal”) purging of Islam + terror ! And alongside said dictates lies the sham of immigration “reform”, nothing more than a “koshering” of illegals to upend America, plus, to ensure that Demsters rule (with an iron first) for decades to come. What a devious plan.
Which leads us straight to the inflammable and “seemingly” inexplicable exhortation from Chicago’s TOP COP!
Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy has not been shy about his disagreement with the new concealed carry laws in Illinois. IR readers may reacall that during an interview with WVON radio earlier this year McCarthy made statements showing his disdain for the 2nd amendment.
“You put more guns on the street expect more shootings,” McCarthy said. “I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”
The comments by McCarthy were obviously meant to intimidate gun owners who choose to exercise their rights. McCarthy would not say what specific training officers will undertake if any. However, he did admit that in the past his department has made mistakes in shooting unarmed civilians. He believes the concealed carry law will increase those types of unfortunate incidents.
“You say concealed carry I say Trayvon Martin. Police officers make mistakes all the time,” McCarthy said. “We spend six months in the police academy, six months of field training and ongoing training on a regular basis and the fact is once in a while we’re going to shoot someone with a cellphone; we’re going to shoot somebody with a flashlight and none of that is okay. But now you take John Q. Civilian, you give them six weeks or 10 weeks of training and you say ‘have at it?’ The fact is more guns are not the solution to the firearm gun violence problem in this country. Less guns and reasonable gun laws are. And just because it’s 49 states to one doesn’t mean the state of Illinois is wrong on that one.”
On the other hand, U.S. Border Patrol Agents have been given specific orders to “stand down”, and not to pursue illegal aliens entering America’s borders. So, at one end of law enforcement, regular police forces are being prepped as military enforcers, but those who are supposed to hunt down illegals, drug smugglers and terrorists are ordered to do nothing. Why?
Now, this blog previously asserted, the radicalization of law enforcement, into a military-oriented organism, is a done deal. Let this sink in: U.S. law enforcement leaders are running wild and morphing police units into military-like enforcers. It is this revamping/mindset which allows for a law enforcement head to utter the most aggressive, anti Constitutional, confrontational edicts to date.
Wrap your head around what Chicago’s chief cop is really stating: regardless of a citizen’s lawful right to own a firearm, the ensuing orders are to shoot first and that is that. Thus, isn’t said exhortation precisely what military forces are ordered to do: shoot to kill the enemy? In reality, law abiding citizens are now lumped together with criminals AND terrorists, and there is nothing which will stop them from executing anyone who stands in their way. Got that?
Welcome to the Dictatorship of the United States. A (soon to be) tyranny !
