    Actually I have very little idea of what life over there is like. What I do know is, if the cops there are going to start getting shot at with any frequency, it's time to give them a way to defend themselves. A simplification? Call it whatever you want, I'd be willing to bet these people are going to want a way to defend themselves.
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    Re: Guns And Cops In England

    A couple of years ago, an innocent man was shot dead by trained and armed policemen, so I don't entirely hold with the idea of arming all police officers. This caused a hell of a furore both amongst the public and amongst the armed officers. However, all oficers should have bullet proof clothing as standard issue and should wear this to any violent type of crime scene. For that matter, foot patrols should have them on as well.
    In the case mentioned above, the officers presumed that the man was carrying a gun without establishing the fact first. I feel that it should have been handled differently. This may not be the fault of the officers. The training methods and philosophy needs to be reassessed. We are not used to guns on the streets in our culture, although this seems to be rapidly changing. This is not the worst case of a shooting. One of the worst recently was of a muslim wedding where the bride was shot in the face by an armed robber. Notwithstanding, my heart goes out to the victims and their families in all these incidents. One of the WPCs was relatively new on the force. Such a needless waste of life. At the moment, I don't know which one died.

    Just heard that one of the WPCs was only on the force for 8 weeks. Still don't know which one yet.

    Capt Buzzard, did you happen to see kenny's piece on gun crime in Ireland on the late late, it was quite interesting. I don't know how you feel about this, but I certainly don't want the Guards to be armed, though perhaps more tactical response units with better training and weapons may be necessary given this latest upsurge in gun toters.

    although this was a tragic waste of life, we've only had 38 serving police officers killed whilst on duty in the last thirty years. I'd have to vote no.
