Citing foreign examples and alleging law enforcement goes too far too often when employing lethal force, City Counselor Perri Freeman says its time to think about taking guns away from cops. Though she acknowledged awful mass shootings like Dayton and El Paso show law enforcement do in fact need their weapons, she suggested “the day in and day out of police work is not engaging with that,” reported myncbc5.com.
“How much is the lethal force – is it really causing at the end of the day, more harm that benefit?,” said Perri Freeman, a Democrat representing the city’s Central District, reported mynbc5.com.
City Counselor Calls to Disarm Law Enforcement
Freeman first introduced the idea during a recent council. Then in a Facebook post she doubled down on her proposed change to how law enforcement operates, citing law enforcement examples in Europe:
However, local law enforcement leaders objected to Freeman’s radical proposal. In a world where officers routinely go into harm’s way, one local leader clearly found Freeman’s proposal absurd.
“There are a lot of guns around, and we as the police try to put ourselves in the position of advantage all the time, and to show up to an armed incident unarmed? I can’t think of anything more disadvantaged than that,” said Dan Gilligan, president of the Burlington Police Officer’s Association, reported mynbc5.com.
Above all, this stands as a shocking, irresponsible comment by an elected official. Freeman’s reaction to emotion and public sentiment to singular events, combined with an ignorance of law enforcement policies, procedures and tactics, suggests she is unfit to hold a leadership position in any community.

The incident began when officers responded to a call of domestic abuse. Officials said officers heard an altercation when they arrived, before finding French in the doorway armed with a semi-automatic pistol, according to wlky.com.
Recently released officer body cam footage shows the entire deadly scene play out. Immediately upon officers arriving, French steps into the doorway and says “I got a gun.” As the first officer asks him to put it down, French defiantly orders the officers to “Back up,” as he turns the pistol toward them.
That’s when both officers opened fire, sending several rounds into the suspect, dropping him immediately. After shooting French, the officers, Lenert Elzy and Carlyn Alexander, move to clear the remaining portion of the house. Additional responding officers begin rendering first aid to the suspect.
According to officials, French held two adults at gunpoint prior to police arrival on the scene. The victims are French’s ex-wife and an adult son. Both told police the suspect had been drinking and had beaten them. The son said he was glad the officers arrived because he feared French would kill them both, according to wave3.com.
French and his two victims were all transported to a local hospital. The suspect later succumbed to his wounds, while the victims are expected to survive, according to wlky.com.
