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.
