The article wrote:Gene Ferrara, you are an ass."I don't think the answer to bullets flying is to send more bullets flying," said Gene Ferrara, the police chief at the University of Cincinnati. "My belief is we ought to be focusing on what we do to prevent the shooting from starting."
Ferrara was a Cincinnati cop for more than a dozen years before he became chief of police at the university. He also said that there are practical concerns from a law enforcement perspective: If you're responding to the scene of a shooting, how do you sort out who is the bad guy and who is the heroic student with a permit?
"The other side of that, I shoot everybody with a gun who doesn't have a uniform on and I then I end up shooting somebody who was a citizen with a carry permit," Ferrara said.
I wonder if he carried a gun as an LEO, or if he tried to talk gang members out of killing him to prevent "more bullets flying." It's easy to argue against self-defense when you're not the sacrificial lamb.
As for the last paragraph... words can't explain what I feel about that remark. Wow.
