Stop Liberal Pandering to Criminals: Police Should Be Armed
I have just watched tonight's episode of The Bill. Even though it is pure fiction, the storyline of the gunpoint abduction of a police officer made me think how vital it is that frontline police are armed.
How often is it on TV we see police arrive at a crime scene only to find that they cannot deal appropriately with a situation because they don't have the firepower? For example, if police are called to a robbery in progress at a post office, instead of PC Plod having to talk the offender into surrendering, if he had a weapon he could draw it on them. There would be no more waiting for an armed response team to arrive and, providing a lethal shot was administered, this would have the advantage of saving taxpayers' money by doing rid of lenghthy court proceedings where the offender would most likely be let off by a liberal judge. Dangerous scum would be removed from the streets instantly.
Arming all police would be a postive first step. It would promote a long-gone sense of respect for the law that has disappeared due to liberal pandering to evil criminals.
Now I know liberal types will be up in arms at such a suggestion but we should not listen to anything they have to say on law and order policy because they always get it wrong. Let's remember that their Liberal Democrat Party wants to let murderers and child molesters off the hook, not send female shop lifters to jail and want to give prisoners the vote. From all this it is clear that liberals are on the side of the criminals, not the victims, and are hopelessly out of touch.
I can only hope that with violent crime rife, the police and government eventually take our advice.
