Former Police Chief: ‘If Thoughts And Prayers Worked, This Would’ve Been Solved a Long Time Ago’

Charles Ramsey

During a CNN panel discussion about the latest mass shooting in America, Charles Ramsey, who served as commissioner of the Philadelphia Police Department and as chief of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, said that “thoughts and prayers” are not an adequate response.

“Here we are again. It’s a week ago that we had the issue at the garlic festival. This isn’t going to stop, it’s just a question of where and when, unfortunately, because nothing’s being done,” Ramnsey told Wolf Blitzer.

“It’s just one more tragedy and I feel for the people whose loved ones have been victims, whether they were killed or whether they survived, they’ll never be the same,” he noted.

“How many kids and their parents are getting ready to go to a mall somewhere in the United States to shop for school supplies now and they see what happened in El Paso?” he wondered.

“This is totally out of hand in this country and something needs to be done, and at least the conversation started, in order to bring some of this to an end,” he continued.

“I know everybody is concerned right now, at least I haven’t heard the thoughts and prayers stuff all over again. If thoughts and prayers worked this would have been solved a long time ago,” Ramsey explained.

“We need to be taking action, strong action or we’ll be right back here again,” he warned.
