Sometimes it takes a while for the factual truths to emerge, but they usually always do. Take the case of police officer James Craig, who began his career in one of America’s hottest or hot-beds, Los Angeles. Officer Craig spent 28 years in that venue and was an avowed supporter of gun control which in that heavily crime infested city.

It wasn’t until Craig relocated all the way across the country to the State of Maine that the factual truths about gun control caught up with him and converted his orientation of disapproval of freedom to carry a weapon by an average citizen to that of being fully cooperative of that process.


Since that epiphany (in the secular sense not necessarily with divine intervention) Craig has moved on from Chief of Police of Portland, Maine, to the far more fractious and unlawful city of Detroit, Michigan, also as Chief of Police, where his new orientation of gun possession advocacy for the public as a tool to deter crime will be administered.

Ironically, Craig began his career in law enforcement in the city of Detroit as a rookie in 1977, so he will be no stranger to the workings and machinations of the criminal element as well as the law-abiding sector which is dwindling in numbers as city residents due to the high crime rate of that city.


Detroit police chief: Legal gun owners can deter crime On January 3, 2014, the Detroit News published an online article by George Hunter, titled “Detroit police chief: Legal gun owners can deter crime” which stated, “If more citizens were armed, criminals would think twice about attacking them, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Thursday.” Hunter went on to say, “Urban police chiefs are typically in favor of gun control or reluctant to discuss the issue, but Craig on Thursday was candid about how he’s changed his mind.”

At least someone's eyes in law enforcement are open.

Craig was Chief here in Cincinnati, and he was the best we had had in a long while. There was a lot of political pressure against him, because the 'good ole boy' police network were used to having inbred, corrupt, and incompetent insiders promoted to the job, so they hated that the city went outside their ranks to pull in a new chief. The BS story about insisting that the new Chief pass the police exam administered to new recruits, despite his 36 years on the job experience is one example of the crap he had to put up with.

I regret losing him.
