Unarmed Cops Is INSANE!
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the outgoing commissioner of Scotland Yard, fervently believes in armed policemen. He even said that in his final speech as commissioner. He decried the refusal of many cops to carry guns. Whoever originally fostered the whole idea of cops without guns was INSANE, and has gotten many cops killed, since criminals usually don't feel the same way, and don't hesitate to shoot cops. The attack on Parliament in England, where an unarmed cop was stabbed to death by the killer before he, himself, was shot and killed by other ARMED cops and his threat ENDED. He noted that one in eight officers refuse to carry guns, in spite of reports like the terrorist killings in France, while the cops had to cower behind their cars and let the perps get away, since they weren't armed, If I were a cop (and I used to be), I'd CERTAINLY want to be armed, to "level the playing field" with the criminals.
