Cleveland police union asks for suspension of ‘open carry’ in wake of Baton Rouge, ahead of RNC
Cleveland, Ohio (CNN) — The head of Cleveland’s largest police union is calling on Ohio Gov. John Kasich to temporarily restrict the state’s open carry gun laws during this week’s Republican National Convention following Sunday’s shooting in Louisiana that killed three officers and wounded at least three others.
Now, whatever you think of this idea and whether or not additional restrictions around the convention might be in order or if security needs to be stepped up or the National Guard called in or whatever, this bit here should scare the living daylights out of every American:
“I don’t care if it’s constitutional or not at this point,” Stephen Loomis, president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, told CNN.
You lost me there, jackass.
The head of the Cleveland police union doesn’t care whether or not what he wants to do is constitutional. That means that Stephen Loomis, president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association needs to be removed from office immediately.
He says those open carrying are going to be targeted for tougher inspections.
“I couldn’t care less if it’s legal or not.”
You known how you get people to hate cops, Mr. Loomis? You know how you get people to think about attacking cops? You know how you make people sympathize with those ambushing cops? By not caring about the Constitution, by not caring what’s legal, and by saying so openly.
Holy shit, Murdoc cannot believe that this idiot is saying this to the media.
Murdocs prediction is that his comments inspaire ten times as many open carriers as would have been there.
Oh, and it’s not those open carrying that he should be worried about.
