She is probably a Muslim. Ms Johnson, I suggest if something bad happens in your life don't call the police since they will probably make it worse. Second when some Islamic extremists you and Hillary let into this country without background checks they don't rape and kill you like they are doing to women in Europe. So good luck to you and I say Hillary for prison 2016. #Hillaryforprison2016

I would only make ONE correction to Jillian's remarks:
It's true that "[SOME
OF] the most dangerous people with guns are cops and soldiers"
especially when, as in Durham,
the use of guns by cops
is undocumented
with no after-action review. Very unprofessional, and NOT consistent with best practices.

ANY angry stranger pointing a gun at you is dangerous, and some cops here do it so often that other cops here call them "jerk-offs"
but because it's undocumented (even when they shoot and miss),
management can't not know which cops are the most dangerous
"Quick-draw" "jerk-offs"
cops are most certainly among the most dangerous people with guns, especially since
cops' GUN PLAY here is undocumented.

inadequate supervision & management of the use-of-force
by the police force is why the police chief
was forced out, replaced, and why Jillian was elected.
