CA. Police Chief Ken James: Police Use Guns To Intimidate And Show Power, Not For Defensive Purposes
In a shocking moment caught on camera, Police Chief Ken James of Emeryville California stated that his police department did not use guns for defensive purposes. Guns were only used to intimidate and show power in order to do their jobs in a safe and effective manner.
This bizarre statement was made during an anti-self defense conference promoting stricter gun control laws on California citizens.
The Orwellian practice of changing the meaning and tone of language to promote the left’s agenda is quite common, but it seemed to have backfired on Chief James and only succeeded at making this police force sound like aggressive thugs. Every day we see the media try to convince the public that semi-auto rifles are military assault weapons, and that standard capacity magazines have dangerously high amounts of ammunition that must be banned. These small language manipulations have worked well for the anti-self defense crowd, but to hear a police chief go as far as to state that his police force does not use their firearms to defend themselves and their community, but rather to intimidate and show power is mind blowing.
Chief James is trying to paint all gun owners at aggressive criminals, but the video of the statement only seems to make the Emeryville Police look like the tyranical agressors.
