Cops and Guns


Yesterday in the UK 2 police officers were shot dead while trying to arrest some dirtbag.  This has caused a furor over whether police should or shouldn’t be armed.  I don’t get it.

Society asks police officers to go into dangerous situations and deal with the scum of society, at times.  Sure, most of the time people are nice and cooperate; however, they still are criminals.  Criminals break the law.  If I were a cop, I would want to be able to protect myself from these dirtbags.  As a member of society, I think we should allow police to protect themselves.
