Chicago Police Chief: I’ll instruct my officers to shoot innocent people
Supposedly, he says:
“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.”
McCarthy would not say what specific training officers will undertake if any.
It’s the “blood in the street” argument, only with a police will instigate it twist. Mind you, I can’t find a a source for this bit other than blogs so take it with a grain of salt.
