MSNBC anchor Richard Lui went to work for MSNBC after he failed to get a journalism job and after the terror attack in London, he confirmed the beliefs of all of those who refused to hire him. The three terrorists killed 8 people and wounded another 48. Lui’s brilliant question to Jim Cavanaugh, a law-enforcement analyst for NBC News is the epitome of ignorance.
This is what Lui asked:
“When you have analyzed these incidents post facto, as well as during … there’s certainly a risk of under-reaction, but is there any risk of overreaction — of deploying too much?”
“You know, as we’ve been watching all of this live coming into our satellite center here in New York City and then beaming it out from London, is there ever a point where you go, ‘Well, that’s too much,’ or ‘You shouldn’t be applying that amount of force there.’”
So, killing the terrorists was the wrong way to go? Does he really think the terrorists would have stopped if they talked to them nicely? The truth is that terrorists who perpetrate these atrocities know they are going to die, so their goal is to kill as many as possible before that happens.
Cavanaugh answered Lui’s absurd question by saying that you really can’t have “too many officers” in a multiple-attack terror crisis.
“When there’s multiple attacks, really, I don’t think the response can be too large, to get enough officers and investigators there to quickly quell it and then find out what’s going on. It’s really not a question of too many officers,” Cavanaugh said. “It’s a question of using them adequately, smartly, getting all the help you can get.”
