…is being treated as a sign of how very out-of-touch and cripplingly politically-correct Chicago, and the city’s airport authority, are: airport cops – who are unarmed at O’Hare and Midway Airports – are being instructed to scamper away and hide in the event of a mass shooting at either airport:
“If evacuation is not possible, you should find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you. Block entry to your hiding place and lock the door,” but Matt Brandon, secretary-treasurer of the airport officers union, told CNN they have serious issues with the protocol.
“These men and women are sent to the Chicago police academy, and trained as police officers, and being a former police officer, I know your first instinct is to go to the problem — not run away from the problem.”
On the other hand? I think every cop in America should be given the opportunity to contemplate facing a mass shooting with nothing but their wits and charm…
…well, no. Not every cop in America.
Just every urban police chief.
Every urban police chief – the ones the gun grabbers always cite as supporting gun control – should be inveighed spend some time in a “gun free zone” as a “gun-free” person. Not as a Blue Noble with the power of life and death. No – just like every other schlub.
Failing that, though? Unarmed cops at two of the major airports in one of the biggest “gun-free” cities / crime cesspools in the country?
