The genius of progressive policy.

American Military Something


During Saturday night’s terrorist attack that killed six and injured more than 30 others, there were reports of some community police running away from the terrorists, leaving citizens to defend themselves – which they did by throwing chairs. Then afterwards, other police stormed in and shot “straight away,” according to reports.


How many more experiences like this are going to happen before this changes???


The police were running away, they were community police. They were normal officers, they were running away.


Disgraceful. Nothing to add.

They were probably ordered to. We wouldn't want the perpetrators to be caught alive would we? They might say something they shouldn't.

Has anyone else noticed a pattern here?

You see the bit you quoted?


The police were running away, they were community police. They were normal officers


That there is a contradiction.

Community police aren't "normal" police officers in the UK. They're not even close. They're more of a glorified neighbourhood watch.

They can't arrest
They can't interview
They can't process prisoners
They can't investigate crimes
And most of all, they do not carry out more high risk tasks as regular police officers do

What do the unarmed police officers do expect a totally docile and compliant populace?

Have Britains lost their grit???

So your police force is typically armed?

Yes, they're armed. Just not with firearms.

I fail to see how that has anything to do with community police though.

I read about this on /pol/ and they compared pictures of how people should handle such attacks. UK has run,hide,call and the US has run,call,defend yourself. I'll side with the US thank you very much. Telling your citizens to just take it when a terrorist comes along is just wrong. I would rather risk my life and taking some of them with me instead of just begging for my life. The story about the people throwing chairs,glasses and bottles at the attackers sounded at first pretty heroic but i read the report and some guys just watched a girl getting stabbed 10-15 times and did nothing at first. A faster reaction on their part could've probably saved her life.

So, they are babysitters??

Better start arming your police officers.

I already told you.

Community police are glorified neighbourhood watch.

They would have been ordered to call for backup and stand down.

Your police officers don't have firearms and your country is under constant threat of terrorism with increasing regularity of terrorist attacks and foiled plans.

We have police who are firearms proficient and called when needed.

We don't have a need, most of the time, for a police officers with a firearm. If we do, they get called.

Seems like you have a need for firearms.

First they disarm your entire populace including your police force and then they import "refugees" and allow known terrorist cells to operate freely and preach their brand of the "Qur'an" on street corners in poor neighborhoods.

Maybe it's time for Europe to wake up and realize you are at war and stop pretending that reality doesn't exist.

The 3 murdering bastards had fake " Suicide Belts " strapped around them.

Problem is.........at the time no one knew they where fake.

Depends on the circumstances.

But yeah, that's pretty standard for CPO's.

We have Armed Response Units. They accidentally shoot innocents sometimes, just like in America.

We're not "disarmed". I've currently got 2 shotguns, 1 rifle and a pistol. All have ammo.

It's just another myth dreamt up by people who aren't in this country.
