Military Weapons for the streets?
I believe that we are now going to start seeing more police brutality and 'Mistakes' being made by British Police. All in the name of 'Safety'.
We only have to look at America for example. The bigger their weapons, the more dangerous they become to the public. Ego plays a big part of course.
Give someone a gun and they'll shoot at a target. Give someone an assault weapon and the target just isn't as satisfying IMO.
I just don't see this being a good move but who knows? Millions of CCTV's AND Militarized Police...How can anything go wrong?
Damn, let's just give all police, politicians, bankers, corporate elite all the weapons and keep making those laws that slowly take them away from the
people. It's where things are going anyways.
I guess we just have to ask our British friends...Are you ready to not only be spied on 24 hrs a day but to have militarized gestapo roaming the
streets as well? Shades of Orwell!
The Ministry of Defense has put the contracts for 30,000 modern assault rifles out to tender to major arms producers around the world to supply
the “civilian police” with the state-of-the-art weaponry by 2014 under the pretext of fighting terrorists and criminal gangs.
Media reports said the police chiefs are already considering arming their officers with the Canadian-made C8 SFW carbine, the same assault rifle the
Special Air Service uses in its high-profile operations. Some of the features the police want to ensure the new rifles have are being adaptable to
use of grenade launchers, silencers and different sights.
Grenade launchers? Silencers? Now why would they need these little toys in the streets?
Grenade launchers are not used to arrest a drunk driver...and a silencer? This one I can't even fathom.
