    Ed Schultz Says Disarm the Police

    “What about disarming the police? What about just having them carry nightsticks and the authority to arrest? It would take a brave person to do something like that. But there are places on the face of this earth where there are police officers that don’t carry firearms. I know the right wing’s gonna think I’m crazy for saying that but if you really want change, you have to institutionally show it to the people that you want to do this.” – MSNBC host Ed Schultz

    The guy has become his own caricature.

    Has Ed forgot the cop that was executed on the sidewalk in front of Charlie Hebdo? I say Ed needs to take the lead and walk the streets of Detroit or Chicago ghettos at night with just a billy club.

    As is any person advocating this or supporting this line of thinking! If they want unarmed cops, have them move to England. :smilewinkgrin:

    Even London's Metropolitan Police's beat cops aka Bobbies, are carrying side arms these days.

    I don't think the guy has a firm grasp on what the criminal elements in this country are like and what they really want..and what they are prepared to do to get it.

    Up until I believe the 1990s, British beat cops were unarmed.

    I bet Mr. Schultz's security doesn't carry billy clubs. Progressives always know what is best for everyone else but themselves.

    There could be worse ideas...like jumping into a pit of rattlesnakes, eating month old cottage cheese or maybe bungi jumping without a bungi rope.

    :laugh: I'm sure all those gun-toting ,"law abiding" criminals would love for us to implement Mr. Schultz's idea.

    Let's call Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Pakistan and the others to let them know that we've destroyed all our nukes too. :rolleyes:

    Ditto? Your sarcasm sounded more like a accusatory question.

    I welcome you to the club of "Wait, that was a joke" - I am a charter member, responsible for confusing people for several years now.
