    If he's not a moron then he's a liar because everybody knows that the best defense (after avoiding the fight altogether fails) is a good offense. Some expert! :rolleyes:

    The police chief in question is scary stupid -- or, as the video says, represents the "epitome of lunacy."

    I guess the "experts" don't believe in numbers like this gem from the CDC

    Assault weapons have no self defense purpose-so said the Supreme Court in 1994. That is how the AWB was ruled constitutional.

    Would you like to provide a case citation for that 1994 ruling?

    Because a crazy LAPD officer on the run for multiple murders would NEVER just show up at your door armed with lots of guns. Nope, you don't need that 'assault rifle' Mr. and Mrs. America.

    Last time I checked, anything that shoots/launches a projectile, or can hold an edge, has a defensive use

    Can't believe that they paraded THIS person our to sell this garbage. Beside the fact that his positions are completely illogical and idiotic, he's essentially acting like a buffoon who'd have a hard time selling water to dehydrated marathoners in the desert.

    As with much political correctness, people will say utterly foolish things and actully believe themselves.

    You've made this claim in other threads as well. When questioned about it you fail to answer. The Clinton "assault weapons ban" became law in 1994 there is no way it could have gone all the way to the supreme court that quickly. In fact it NEVER did. Perhaps you should do some research before repeating this untruth again.

    Can we dig deep enough so that California will float out into the Ocean?

    does anyone else find it unsettling he said his officers carry guns for solely for "offensive" use...?


    so hes admitting his officers carry guns to actively attack innocent civilians..........so much for that whole " to protect and to serve" thing, eh?


    how this man still has a job, i do not know.

    M-Cameron,

    That was my take on the video, and why I wanted to post the link.

    This scared little man needs to sell insurance. No way he should be a cop.

    CA Police Chief Ken James

    WoW !!! This man is in charge of a law enforcement agency? How can his officers have any trust in this fool. He has no "Command Presence" , stumbles thru his speach. He apperantly had no idea he was going to be recorded. He looked scared and very unsteady. He dosen't make any valid statments. As retired Leo, I have serious doubts about this man's ability to lead a fishing trip. Sir James, if you read this it's ok to reply

    In that specific situation... a gas mask, Nomex suit and a fire extinguisher might be more appropriate :evil:

    He looks like the living embodiment of the Peter Principle in action.
