Detroit Police Chief James Craig speaks out after photo on cover of NRA magazine

DETROIT (WXYZ) - During a news conference Monday afternoon, Detroit Police Chief James Craig spoke about being featured on the June cover photo of the National Rifle Association Magazine.

He also addressed the article that was written. Chief Craig says it is the right of law abiding citizens to protect themselves and has previously said... "we're not advocating violence, we're advocates of not becoming victims."

The chief has applauded Detroit homeowners who in recent months have defended themselves by shooting and sometimes killing intruders.

"I’m not advocate for violence. But, I am an advocate that when faced with a dangerous situation, one that offers or presents an imminent threat to life, or the threat of great bodily harm – that one protects themselves," said Chief Craig.
