Why Can California Campus Cops Outgun Chicago Police?
Los Angeles, CA—Believe it or not California’s gun-hating politicians learned something from a tragedy. Two suicidal gunmen armed with exotic fully automatic weapons, body armor and lots of ammunition was discovered by an LAPD officer on their way into a Bank of America branch. That officer called for help and the rest is history.
In hindsight it would have been better to simply ignore the incident because the LAPD was no match for the robbers. The price paid in causalities was horrific before the carnage was over.
LAPD’s officers had only 9MM handguns and a few .12 gauge shotguns. They were defeated by the robber’s armor. Unlike Chicago where politicians completely ran the gun dealers out-of-town the LAPD officers sought and obtained high powered weapons from a gun store.
Chicago police could never cope with anything like what happened in North Hollywood. Mayor Richard Daley and police superintendent Jody “J-Fed” Weis both know the truth but have taken no steps to remedy the situation. . Other than their self purchased duty side arms Chicago police have nothing until the Hostage Barricade boys and girls arrive.
Every police agency in California has armed and trained their officers with M-4 carbines and shotguns. Rather than carry the firearms in car trunks they are available to the officers in vehicle gun racks.
The fine men and women working patrol duties at the UCLA Police Department are far more capable of dealing with a Mumbai, India style attack then Chicago cops.
