Detroit Mom Demonstrates Why You Need a Gun

It’s always a joy to watch predatory Trayvons running in fear from a lawful citizen:

Detroit Police Chief James Craig has been taking some heat for his courageous support of the Second Amendment. His well-informed response to it:

“I did, in fact, say that good Americans, good Detroiters, if responsible, could get CPLs (carrying pistol licenses), and that it could — emphasis on the word ‘could’ — be a deterrent to violent crime. I said that because of my experience in four cities, having seen good Americans and good Detroiters that have CCWs (carrying concealed weapons permits), and what effect it has had on deterring violent crime.

“In fact, there’s been research … by the Department of Justice and some scholars that armed citizens, good citizens, can have a deterring effect on violent crime,” he said. “While I sit here with lots of optimism and encouragement that crime is declining, we still have incident after incident where individuals like elderly people get dragged out of their cars at gunpoint.

“There was a study done comparing the U.S. to Great Britain that suggested that home invasions, while people were in the house, were less likely in the United States than in Great Britain. And the reason why is because the suspects know there’s a greater likelihood that people in America are more likely to have guns inside their homes. So they tend to wait until the home is vacant to commit the home invasion.

“In England, suspects, because of the restrictive gun laws, 50 percent of the home invasions are committed while the people are in their homes.

“Most telling, there was research done by felons who were incarcerated, and what they said is that they’re more fearful of armed citizens than they are of police officers.”

If Chief Craig’s wise words don’t convince you, refer again to the video above.

    Stupid brain-dead reporter-ette at the end of the video:

    “…Have these kids been in trouble before…?”

    Uh, no honey, they’re just sweet little angels who have never done anything like this before in their lives. They’re so inexperienced it took them 4 tries to kick in the door. And the one little darling was so nervous with his handgun that he ended up dropping it in the snow. Poor little juvenile delinquents…maybe we need another midnight basketball program to keep the yutes out of trouble….

    Stupid telemprompter-reading reporter. What a f’ing moron.

  2. Son of Taz says:

    The next time some idiot liberal wants to ban guns, strap them to a chair, super glue their eyes open and play this video for five for six hours.

    Maybe then they’ll get it.

  3. DJ, a former Detroiter says:

    Add together Police Chief Craig, a newly elected very competent white mayor, a fed-up citizenry, and who knows? Detroit may well be back on the road to recovery! In any event, I can’t express it strong enough what a breath of fresh air Police Chief Craig is turning out to be.

    Craig is to Detroit as Joe Arpaio is to Maricopa County.

  4. Xavier says:

    The only reason that video’s still on YouTube is that the youts are covered head to toe and you can’t identify their race.

    Otherwise it would be racist. Hell, an embassy could be attacked over that video. People could die.

    More reasons for the 2nd AMENDMENT

  6. Jodie says:

    I commend Police Chief Craig for having the courage to speak the truth, but I fully expect that he will be battered by his fellow Detroiters for “wandering off the plantation” and will soon be issuing his apologies.

  7. Henry says:

    It’s too bad one, or more, of the yuffs didn’t get Trayvoned… that blood would have contrasted with the snow nicely.

    Before everyone starts sing the praises of Chief Craig, he left Cincinnati because:http://www.pressherald.com/cincinnati-maine-portland-craig-test-police-chief.html

    @ Jodie

    So far Craig has been received with widespread support from the community. I’m sure the black Marxist activists that used to rule Detroit are somewhere grumbling and complaining, but their voices have yet to be heard on the MSM.

    One thing is for sure, you will never hear Craig apologize for doing the job he was hired to do.

    DJ,

    I hope you are right, but there are very few people out there who have spoken truth to power and then NOT apologized later. I can only think of a handful – like Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, and Rush Limbaugh. Craig surely has skeletons in his closet, see Clink’s post above. Obama, Holder, the crooks in Detroit, they will likely all try to put Craig in his place.

    I will pray for him to be strong though! His message is good and true.

  13. Mannie says:

    It’s a shame she couldn’t shoot better. There should have been at least two Democrats at room temperature.

  14. Sam Adams says:

    “There was a study done comparing the U.S. to Great Britain that suggested that home invasions, while people were in the house, were less likely in the United States than in Great Britain.”

    The actual statistics on the percent of homes burglarized while occupied:
    UK: 60%
    US: 13%

  15. Uncle Ted says:

    only one way this story could have ended better, and that would be with video of the three punks lying dead in the snow.

    That woman needs marksmanship training.

    Sadly, Detroit’s future isn’t quite here yet… so good job, mom!

    Exactly right Jodie. Getting dirt on the political opposition to the current ruling class is the specific purpose of the NSA domestic spying programs.

    Ask yourself this, which are there more of talking on cell phones, using email, posting on websites like this one, etc., in the U.S., foreign jihadi terrorists or people like me who vehemently oppose this anti-Constitutional, rogue government?

    Unfortunately, we have reached the point in America where the police have become as least as great a threat to the citizenry as the criminals. The difference being that the police have more and bigger guns. Not all but way too many of them. For example the police who are currently looking for the MA. father who’s daughter was confiscated by the state and has been kept from them over a dispute about her medical care. The state, via the court, has unconstitutionally gagged the parents from talking about this abuse of power. THAT is where we are in Amerika today, the POLICE enforce the will of the ruling class, they do not serve the people.

  19. Jodie says:

    You are right about the NSA, 762×51. It is a tool for Obama to use against his right wing enemies, NOT his Muslim terrorist friends.

  20. DJ says:

    @ Jodie and 752×51

    The “skeletons in Craig’s closet” revealed in the article Clink linked to amount to nitpicking. Period.

    The fact is, Craig has backbone to go along with his principles hence he is not about to bow to PC pressure.

    Latest news for Chief Craig:

    Detroit Police Chief James Craig remains defiant despite death threat

    By: Andy Choi

    Updated: 40 mins ago

    DETROIT (WXYZ) – The death threat on Detroit Police Chief James Craig has created a sense of urgency. The FBI and the Michigan State Police are now involved in the investigation, but Chief Craig remains defiant, saying threats like this will not change the way he fights crime.

    “When you threaten a police chief, you’re threatening every member of the Detroit Police Department,” Craig said.

    The chief says the threat was made on social media. He wouldn’t specify a site, but says the threat included a photo of a handgun.

    “The suspect made the statement in his street jargon, ‘We need to clap him out.’ Certainly, that was meant for me. He referenced the chief because there’s been what his group would say is a disruption,” Craig said.

    That disruption has come in the form of numerous narcotics raids since Craig’s arrival last July. The Chief says in addition to five large-scale raids, his department conducts on average 35 drug house raids a week. [emphasis mine]

    “I will tell you that’s having an impact on undermining these criminal organization’s revenue streams,” he said. “So they’re angry.”

    But anger is a two way street among those dealing drugs, and those fighting to remove them. Craig says the threat on his life reinforces the department’s success, and it will only bolster his commitment to the city’s public safety.

    “We will not be deterred. I will not be deterred! Because the community and the police officers are counting on us,” Craig said.

  21. Jodie says:

    DJ,

    Even if you believe that example is “nitpicking”, be assured, they will dig until they find something on Craig. We all have skeletons. I’m sure he does too.

    Just think about all the high ranking military leaders who Obama has ousted. In addition, many people have resigned “in disgace”, or apologized for speaking the truth, or lost their jobs or their businesses, due to Obama’s systematic destruction of his detractors.

  22. DJ says:

    Jodie,

    I’m not disagreeing with you on the larger point you make. There is no question about the fact if the leftist tyrants want to bring someone down, they WILL find those necessary skeletons in the closet to do so. If those skeletons don’t exist, they will invent them. We know all too well just how devious and ruthless the progs are.

    That said, I get the distinct impression, thus far, that the sociopathic commie tyrants don’t have Craig on their enemies list … not yet, anyway.
