I figure that it’s only a matter of time before some ISIS kook manages to get into a gun-free victim zone like DisneyWorld and amass a substantial body count due to a lack of shooting back thanks to the disarmament policies of The Mouse.
And after the screwed up response by the Orlando PD with the Pulse shooting, I would not be surprised that it will happen at any time. The impression given was of Tactical Keystone Cops and that is not very intimidating.
So what is the response from the Chief? To go in a junket to the Middle east:
Now Orlando Police Chief Mina is joining a delegation of police chiefs headed to Israel to learn from Israeli counter-terrorism experts, but still can’t seem to grasp how poor Orlando’s leadership was in response to this attack.In one breath, Mina notes that the Israelis—like law enforcement agencies around the world, including many in the United States, have a pretty good idea on how to handle Orlando-type attacks.
I know the Israelis are good at counter-terrorism, but he did not need to go far. If there is anything in Florida is premier schools all over the place that can teach the local cops how to respond to Active Shooter situations. In fact there is one not even 20 miles west where the top firearm instructors regularly teach from the basics to serious ninja shit. And they can probably get some classes up for cops next week, not sometime in the future.
But looking cool is more important than actually doing the right thing.
