OK with our friends across the pond this should be interesting.
Should they be armed?
Or maybe you feel this will make matters worse?
Or maybe you feel matters cannot be worse?
Please discuss....

I think that they need to be better screened and trained. Then it wouldn't matter. Right now the majority should not be allowed to carry badges and sticks, let alone guns!

I have always wondered why todays inventors cant invent an instant tranquilizer bullet - that way they could take down whoever needed without actually killing

Im a sick kind of person and think they should bring back the death penalty - would change alot of uk overnight

Last week a police officer was shot dead in the center of the CBD Cape Town chasing a burglar. He chose not to wear his vest. His funeral was yesterday.

Itís not he firearm that kills but the person behind it. In Africa our criminals shoot first and donít take prisoners. My response would if we lived in a perfect world donít but till that happens yes because a cop without a firearm cant even direct traffic.
