Guns: The Difference Between Garland and Paris

When armed terrorists attacked Charlie Hebdo headquarters over Muhammad cartoons on January 7, unarmed police officers were forced to flee for their lives. When armed men attacked people gathered in Garland, Texas, on May 3 over Prophet Muhammad cartoons, armed police cut them down — and the Daily Mail reported that the body of one was left lying the street while police searched for explosives.

The difference between Garland and Paris can be summed up in one word: guns.

On January 7, CBS News relayed reports from Britain’s Telegraph newspaper that the first two officers to arrive “were apparently unarmed” and “fled after seeing gunmen armed with automatic weapons and possibly a grenade launcher.” The UK’s Independent reported that “three policemen arrived on bikes but had to leave because were armed.”

BBC reported the Paris gunmen killed 12 in their attack on Charlie Hebdo headquarters; that number includes 8 Charlie Hebdo “eight journalists, two police officers, a caretaker and a visitor.”

And legendary:

More hidden posts than any other DU member, a position she held consistently for weeks (also a position she held regularly on DU2). Numerous attempts to drive a wedge between LGBT DUers and Feminists. Did not seem to like LGBT DUers very much; defended transphobia on a number of occasions. Tried to bypass being blocked out of threads by repeatedly editing her remaining posts. Tried to bully potential Jurors into leaving her disruptive posts alone by repeatedly posting rude callouts of Jurors in the Help & Meta-discussion forum. Was a constant fixture in flame wars in that forum. Repeated attempts to badger the Admins into banning people via the alert function. Constantly surly and rude, iverglas had become pretty much the epitome of "making DU suck." She received an enormous amount of feedback from other DUers indicating that she was disruptive and divisive and was given ample opportunity to modify her approach, but instead chose to believe that the problem was everybody else on DU.

The killer of Officer Moore was egged on by those who were excuse-making

for the violence in Baltimore, i.e, the vast majority of the American Left. The primary blood is on the killer's hands, of course, but the American Left were accessories before the fact with their non-stop cop-hating rhetoric - including some right here on DI.

They need to own it.

R.I.P., Officer Moore.

Actually, that's irrelevant twice over, and yet another attempt to diminish not only

the role law enforcement plays in keeping our society stable, but also to pretend that the three professions are even remotely comparable:

1. Loggers and fishermen are not keeping us all safe from the predators of society, but rather engaging in a private enterprise that is quite profitable to them personally. Cops, on the other hand, are not reaping handsome monetary rewards from their efforts. Police officers are engaging in PUBLIC SERVICE, something Democrats are usually praising to the rafters as the most noble calling of all - when it's folks handing out welfare checks or otherwise implementing the liberal agenda. Not so much when it comes to cops, the folks who are trying to check the rampant criminality of so many of those who are on the receiving end of those same taxpayer freebies: funny how that works!

2. The day random trees or fish start breaking into your home or assaulting you on the streets is the day you might have the remotest scintilla of a point. But all of this "loggers and fishermen have more dangerous jobs!!!!" blarney - and every bit of it is an attempt to diminish the task cops face, and is therefore irrelevant blarney - also ignores the fact that as a percentage of the population, the number of loggers and fishermen are miniscule, and confined to areas where large amounts of lumber or the ocean is available. The police are in nearly every community in the land, and in most communities the vast majority of us are decent human beings and do not put the cops lives in danger every single day of the year. That's not the case in places like Baltimore, Detroit, Oakland, etc., etc. That fact skews the statistics that you're depending on when you regurgitate this garbage "cops don't have the most dangerous jobs!!!" meme here; if you eliminated low-crime communities in mostly suburban and rural America I guarantee you the statistics would look quite different.

But all of this is not about some sort of gushing concern about the well-being of loggers and fishermen in any event, of course: it's about attempts to diminish the dangers law enforcement in many parts of the country face every day of the week.

Man accused of stabbing HCC officer 14 times


Prosecutors said a 24-year-old police woman was stabbed a total of 14 times by a man who allegedly told investigators he was out to kill the police officer because "cops are oppressive."

Houston homicide investigators said Jeremiah M. Matthews, 23, tried to kill an off-duty Houston Community College Officer Aprils Pikes early Tuesday morning while she was working as a security guard at a Meyerland Walmart store.

During a magistrate's hearing Tuesday night, prosecutors said, "The defendant gave a statement admitting he had the intent to attack a police officer and his desire to kill a police officer.”

I'm sure someone will be along shortly to blithely and disgustingly proclaim, "well, so what? She gets paid to be a police officer, doesn't she?"

Best wishes for the recovery of the officer.
