Milwaukee Police Chief's Freudian Slip: "I've Got Officers Out in the Streets Every Day Trying to *Commit* Violence"

Milwaukee police chief Ed Flynn, a rabid citizen disarmament advocate, had a revealing Freudian slip while speaking at Diane Feinstein's senate hearing on gun control. He told the committee, referencing the turf he lords over, "The fact of the matter is, I've got officers out in the streets of that city every day trying to commit violence."

No doubt he meant to say "prevent" violence, he went on to describe a world on the brink of chaos where the only thing holding society together was his goons on every street corner, though he cites the comical example of his officers' "protection" as being at a high school breaking up a fist fight between two sophomores. Of course, the picture he paints (as though he was doing an imitation of the tyrant from the movie V for Vendetta) is total nonsense, there is 256 officers per 100,000 people in the US, if all those people were actually at each other's throats, so few officers couldn't possibly stop them.

Nonetheless, his Freudian slip is in line with comments made recently by California police chief Ken James who said guns "are not a defensive weapon."

ďA gun is an offensive weapon used to intimidate and show power," James said.

"Police officers donít carry a gun as a defensive weapon to defend themselves or their other officers. They carry a gun to be able to do their job in a safe and effective manner and face any oppositions we may come upon.Ē

The implication was clear, his officers do not use their guns for defense, but for offense. Or as the Milwaukee police chief put it, their officers are out in the streets every day trying to commit violence, not act as defenders of the public. A brief overview of the news can show you such is the case.

In a recent video from WeAreChange, they interviewed Joe Lozito, a man who was almost stabbed to death by a serial killer on the New York subway, NYPD officers armed with pistols were in the train directly next to him, witnessed the entire incident, and chose to stand by idly and watch as Lozito was stabbed repeatedly in the head. They refused to lift a finger to defend him, Lozito managed to fight the assailant off without any help from the police, nor other passengers, and only after disarming the serial killer did the police enter the train and apprehend him.

Of course, Bloomberg later said his police were "heroes" and gave them sole credit for apprehending the killer.

Lozito filed a lawsuit against the police for not acting to defend him, they responded by seeking for the case to be dismissed saying "police have no duty to protect citizens."

Note, this is despite the fact these "law enforcement" officers are armed to the teeth and the slave general public they rule over has been forcibly disarmed.

The government and police are not here you protect you, they're here to rule over you. That's why they want to be the only ones with guns, they want you at their mercy.
