It amazes me that people do not understand precisely how few police officers are available to deploy at a moment's notice during incidents like this. "There is nothing they can do". Actually there's plenty the police service can do, but the bleeding hearts wouldn't approve. Sending in "the army" would meet with similar dismay, but is inevitable by the look of things. Any pre-emptive police presence is denounced as oppressive and any subsequent response is "inadequate". There is far too much empathy from F*cking journalists toward the criminals, as if they don't already have a ridiculous sense of entitlement to do precisely as they please without let or hindrance. I'd gladly shoot them and then micturate on their mortals remains. Feel free to share your thoughts.
