DC’s Top Cop Rips Local Leaders for ‘Coddling Violent Criminals’, Allowing ‘Them Back Out’ After Arrests

"The justice system we have right now is not functioning the way that it should. The courts are not open. That is a fact."


DC Police Chief Robert Contee exploded on local officials Friday after a series of shootings rocked the nation’s capital; saying politicians “cannot coddle violent criminals who are making communities unsafe.”

Contee added that the violence should “shock the conscience” of everyone in the city.

“It’s unacceptable in any community…This should be shocking to the conscience of every person in our city. I don’t care where you live, it has the attention that it is gotten now b/c it’s happened where it happened,” said DC Police Chief Robert Contee.

“The justice system we have right now is not functioning the way that it should. The courts are not open. That is a fact. Barely open. So cases from last year…they have not been disposed of, what do you think those individuals are?” he added.

“This was real for some people, but it has been happening in communities all across the city…You cannot coddle violent criminals…You cannot treat violent criminals who are out here making communities unsafe…What they make require is to be off of our streets,” stated the capital’s Top Cop.

 

“Families suffer when they don’t have to because we are putting violent criminals, allowing them to be back out…That’s unacceptable. So, what do we do about it? We have honest conversations with the people, the leadership…the council members,” he concluded.

    Oh, I meant to add: the article claims there’s a video to watch. Nuh-uh. And: I’ll be glad when the left side pop out menu stops doing so all by itself. lol

    I was wondering when a comment box would get put on the Read items here, glad to see it for us Members.

    This news item has issues with its composition, typos and disorganization, so I had a hard time reading it.

    Aside from that, I was happy to see a police chief speak out some common sense. Right now, sadly, stupidly, those who need to hear it wouldn’t listen *unless* it came from someone his color. And we all know it.

    Way too many ellipses. News should not be paraphrased.

      Completely agree. The media needs to go back to reporting the entire story, not just what they want people to hear. Example: this chief mentioned too many guns in the city, if left at that, it could be reported as him saying he is calling for gun bans as a solution to the problem. As he continues, he further says the problem is violent criminals, which is always the case

      • TheDarkworld says:

        Makes me think of the gun discussion in general. “If all the bad people stop doing bad things guns are unnecessary right?” Well duh, but when other nations have enforced harsh gun bans they saw an increase in stabbings etc. Paraphrasing is just a means of avoiding the real issue.
