  • Another ax attack on police prompts warnings

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/31/us/ax-...html?hpt=hp_t2

    Washington (CNN)
    -- An officer with Washington's Metropolitan Police Department came under an unprovoked attack Friday from a man wielding an ax, police said, the second such attack in two weeks that is prompting warnings and new protocols to officers on the job.


    The attack, and another last week in which a man attacked four New York City officers with a hatchet in Queens, prompted an immediate increase in security for officers in both D.C. and New York. The New York Police Department said in a memo: "Police Officers on patrol should maintain a heightened level of awareness."


    The attack in Washington occurred around 3 a.m. as the officer was sitting in his marked squad car in Washington's Brookland neighborhood, near the campus of Catholic University of America, police said.

    The officer, who hasn't been identified, wasn't injured by the ax, but he chased the suspect and suffered a shoulder injury in a scuffle before the attacker ran away, police said. No motive is known and the suspect remains at large. Police said he was an African-American man about 6 feet tall and of stocky build.

    A photo provided to CNN by a law enforcement official shows the ax implanted in the window of the police car, just inches away from where the officer's head was inside the car.

    Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier issued a warning to officers to increase their vigilance for their safety, amid concern about recent attacks on authorities in New York and Canada, a law enforcement official told CNN.

    In reaction to the Washington attack, the NYPD issued new patrol protocols to its officers to increase security, including "Effective immediately, all foot posts are to be assigned in pairs of two. There are to be no solo foot posts assigned citywide."


    The memo said officers will be required to remain together and take meal breaks in pairs.

    I was in a police station today (not related to my agency) and a guy came in acting hinky. I kept a pretty close eye on him. He disappeared and it caused a bit of a small worry with those working there. All ended up being ok, but who knows today.....things are getting so weird.

        Not related to any other attacks recently. Nope. Nothing at all similar...
        Hey Holder. Are YOU tracking this stuff? Oh. I forgot. Do nothing when attacked is better than doing the RIGHT THING, since you don't want to be accused of racism and investigated by the Feebs and hung out by Holder et al...
        Now go home and get your shine box!

            The company that made that window had their act together, I can't believe it stopped that ax.

                    Is that laminated glass that was used for the side window?

                    Why is it acceptable for you to be an idiot, but not acceptable for me to point it out?

                      Nothing, because when you substitute the word "axe" for "gun" in their normal tripe, it really shines how ignorant the words are. But when the word gun is in there, for some reason it just makes sense. An axe is just a tool right? No harm there. /s/

                        Which reminds me of "common sense gun laws." That phrase makes me , and sometimes it makes me wanna barf.gif.

                        Hey, if only we'd had "common sense hatchet laws" back before the Bill of Rights was written, Augustine Washington's cherry tree might still be standing today. Seriously. For the children.

                          And the really sickening thing - had the cop revoked the wanna-be-Jason's birth certificate, some whiny tail liberal would be saying "but he didn't even have a gun!! It's police brutality!"

                            Well yeah, sure. Because only guns can kill people. Everyone knows that!



                            I just re-read that article and this line has me scratching my head:

                            So where are the LEOs walking around provoking attacks from nutjobs with axes? Maybe the author had a word a day calendar in front of them when they wrote the article.

                              From what I can tell, the Charger has a laminated side glass option.

                              Interesting option to consider.
