D.C. Police Chief Decries Broken Criminal Justice System

posted on September 8, 2016

Outgoing Washington, D.C., Police Chief Cathy Lanier lamented her city’s “beyond broken” justice system last week, citing the lack of outrage over repeat offenders as the principal reason for her retirement. “People are being victimized who shouldn’t be,” she declared. 

Where was Lanier’s outrage over those innocent victims during her 10-year term? Apparently she was too busy pushing gun control and denying constitutional rights to the law-abiding to notice. Lanier made headlines after appearing on “60 Minutes” last year and advising citizens in an active shooter situation to “take the gunman down.” She declined to elaborate on how, probably since getting a carry permit in gun-controlled D.C. is so laborious that one journalist wrote an entire book about it. 

Just this past June, Lanier talked about seeing more shootouts in the city where “everybody is armed.” Everybody but the law-abiding, of course, who have been stripped of their rights to defend themselves against the rise in crime largely due to Lanier’s own policies. Looks like there’s far more broken in D.C. than just the justice system.
