Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Sorting Out the Chaos

 

One of the proposals coming from the future Biden/Harris administration is a national oversight committee on policing. Needless to say, street cops who answer calls, or do proactive police work on a daily basis will have no place on this committee. Empty suits and pre-selected admin cops will be seated to pass judgment on real cops that have to make a decision in a matter of seconds.

I’m not filled with confidence with those who have been selected to fill positions in a Biden administration. They couldn’t fight their way out of a wet paper bag, nor are they experts on police work. Sorting out the chaos when a social worker won’t do, or reimagining policing in a home invasion robbery is difficult at best.

The bodycam footage in this incident is difficult to follow because body cams have a limited field of view.

Dramatic video released Monday shows how Florida sheriff’s deputies interrupted what authorities described as a targeted home invasion, apprehending three armed suspects and rescuing five adults left tied up in the garage before ultimately carrying a 7-year-old girl found hiding inside the home to safety.

A 19-year-old woman dialed 911 Saturday night and told dispatchers that men with guns had broken into her family’s home before 10 p.m. in the 1400 block of Eden Drive in the city of Deltona. The woman is heard softly asking the dispatcher for help and saying that her mom is crying.

According to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, three armed suspects approached two people who were in the opened garage of the home and demanded they empty their pockets. The men entered the home and found three other adults. All five were found tied up in the garage when deputies arrived.

Warning; There is profanity in the video, but sometimes “golly, gee whiz!” is just not enough. A future Joe “Abortion” Biden administration that is no friend to the 2nd Amendment will attempt to disarm you, and you will see an increase in home invasion robberies.

I’ll admit that I choked up a bit listening to the frightened pleas from a seven-year-old girl when Deputy Teske located her hiding place.

    If I heard right, one of them had a rifle – an AK.

    Hard cover? From an AK? Lots of luck. Look for an engine block to hunker down behind.

    Sometimes you have to go work with the tools that you have.

    I get that. Hard cover is a relative term.

    Cars are bullet proof. Haven’t you seen any movies?

    The same ones where cars blow up when the gas tank is hit by regular rounds? :)

    Perhaps a couple of social workers should have been sent to defuse the situation instead, ya think?

    I don’t get what your concern is. A group of bureaucrats and activists second guessing your split second decisions after the fact from 3000 miles away sounds totally normal and fair. 

    For commies that are too stupid for central planning, central second-guessing is much much easier.

    God bless and protect the men and women of law enforcement. A retired Connecticut State Trooper deliver my home heating oil back in September and his bordering on emotional show of gratitude over our flying a Blue Line Flag was more than I ever anticipate. He repeatedly said that most people just don’t understand the need for Law Enforcement and don’t appreciate them.

    My Great Grandfather, Grandfather and Father were all Philadelphia police officers and we fly the flag for them and all their brothers. I thought it was only as important as a quixotic show of opposition like flying the flags of the Vendee, the Spanish Reconquista or the Cross of Burgundy (Saint Andrew’s Cross).
