Just wondering, what kind of sidearms do UK police have? With the amount of shot they got in, I am surprised they are still living. Perhaps it's time to upgrade...............

In human society we rightly expect people to behave like civilised human beings, not animals. And guess what? It works. Occasionally some people don't behave like civilised human beings. When this happens we respond appropriately in a rational manner, using the full force of the legal system to ensure justice is done.
Shooting criminals to death in the street might be cathartic, but it doesn't get answers and it doesn't necessarily result in justice.
No, it's about what you think we should do to these low life killers. So it is about you and what you think.
What the hell? You've arbitrarily decided I'm a pacifist... why exactly?
I'm not a pacifist; in fact I come from a military family.
Father formerly in the Australian navy; paternal grandfather in the British Army of the Rhine; maternal grandfather in the British navy during WWII; paternal great-grandfather in the British navy during WWII; maternal great-great-uncle in the British army during World War I; another maternal great-great-uncle in the British army during the Second Boer War.
There's no hypocrisy here.
I'm simply saying that if you think it's OK to live like an animal
you should go and join them.
