    A city councilwoman in North Carolina is walking back an explosive statement she wrote Monday on her personal Facebook page in which he said that the “most dangerous people with guns” aren’t criminals, but police officers and soldiers.

    “I am all about keeping guns away from dangerous people, but I feel like more of us should be pointing out that the most dangerous people with guns are cops and soldiers, and that the no-fly list and FBI anti-terror efforts are seriously corrupted by entrapment, racial profiling and Islamophobia,” Durham City Councilwoman Jillian Johnson posted.

    All sounds correct to me. A harmless soldier would be pretty useless.

    Although the entrapment comment sounds wrong. Surely you would be on the list before they try to entrap you?

    Some things are shocking but true.

    It is a fine line between capturing a suspect, and entrapping someone. How do we identify criminals, except by catching them in the act?
