Senator Compares Cops to ISIS- Says He Would Only Own A Gun To Protect Himself From Police

Lincoln, NE– A Nebraska state senator is receiving some major backlash after making very controversial statements at a legislative hearing on a concealed gun bill on Friday.

Senator Ernie Chambers is known as the “defender of the downtrodden” for his passionate defense of civil rights.

Without holding back, the 77-year-old Chambers, compared American police to ISIS and has since received a barrage of criticism. Chambers asserted that the police are the only reason he would want to own a gun.

Chambers’ speech begins at 51:06–

My ISIS is the police,” Chambers said, “the police are licensed to kill us — children, old people,” he continued.

Chambers, an independent, has served 40 years in the Legislature. He is no stranger to calling it as he sees it. In fact, his political career was born after protesting his termination from the post office for speaking out against management referring to black men as “boys.”

First elected in 1970, Chambers was re-elected in every election through 2004. In 2005, Chambers became Nebraska’s longest-serving state senator. He was barred from re-election in 2008 due to a constitutional amendment passed in 2000 limiting Nebraska legislators to two consecutive terms. The amendment, however, permits senators to seek re-election after sitting out for four years.

Chambers ran again in 2012 and won by a landslide.

I wouldn’t go to Syria, I wouldn’t go to Iraq, I wouldn’t go to Afghanistan, I wouldn’t go to Yemen, I wouldn’t go to Tunisia, I wouldn’t go to Lebanon, I wouldn’t go to Jordan, I would do it right here,” Chambers said. “Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do daily.”

The beloved senator was pointing out that you don’t have to go halfway around the world to find terrorism. He states that it can be found right here in America where the police have killed 268 Americans, that we know of, in the 84 days since January 1, 2015.

That is over three people per day, or another life taken every 8 hours.

When looking at terrorism, the U.S. Department of State reports that only 16 non-military U.S. citizens were killed worldwide as a result of terrorism in 2013, the most recent year that there was available data. This means that as a United States citizen you are 58 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist.

If I was going to carry a weapon, it wouldn’t be against you, it wouldn’t be against these people who come here that I might have a dispute with. Mine would be for the police,” he said. “And if I carried a gun I’d want to shoot him first and then ask questions later, like they say the cop ought to do.

The bold statements drew a wave of condemnation from many of his peers as well as Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer.

“The comments that Senator Ernie Chambers made today at the Nebraska Unicameral are not only reprehensible but are completely without merit,” Chief Schmaderer said. “The comments are unbecoming of a state senator and have brought no value to the discussion of police community relations. I stand with my Omaha Police Officers as they are hardworking dedicated professionals.”

Mayor Jean Stothert stated in a press release that he should be looking for ways to improve public safety instead of “comparing police officers to terrorists,” Omaha.com reports.

Republican State Senator Beau McCoy has also jumped on the bandwagon calling on Chambers to apologize.

Chambers has stood firm, asserting that his comments were in response to Omaha Police Officer Alvin Lugod fatally shooting Danny Elrod on Feb. 23. The officer has resigned as of Tuesday.

I’m not advocating that anybody, especially anybody in my community, go out and shoot people,” Chambers told Watchdog.org.

However, he stood his ground and was quick to point out, once again, the impunity granted to police when they take a life.

“They’re encouraged and they’re given a free pass,” he said. “All you (police) have to say is you felt like you were in danger, then a citizen could say, ‘I will shoot first and ask questions later.’ ”

Sometimes the truth hurts.
