Police chief on receiving end of DC crime
The police chief of Lincoln, NE, tried to get a ban on concealed carry there (i.e., even if the carrier had a state CCW permit). Then he visits DC, as in home of handgun bans, and he and his wife are on the receiving end of a purse snatching. Cam Edwards has the story.
It sounds as if the snatcher was a mental case. Lots of them in DC, and some don't even hold public office. Once saw one of those official motorcades coming down a street, and one of the bag-people started to run out into the street, and a policeman on one of those three-wheeled motorcycles peeled off to brush them back. It seemed to be a standard drill for such motorcades!
