In 2010, in the United States, there was a 20 percent increase of police officers killed, via firearms. Yet, some people on this UK board want police officers unarmed and refuse to accept, the UK and the US are two different animals.

To the slain, god bless, to the slayers: **** you and I hope you die/rot in hell.

Would also make it considerably harder to shoot dead a policeman if you couldn't legally buy enough hardware to kit out a SWAT team.

Just out of curiosity who, on this forum want police officers to be unarmed? In the UK perhaps but I can't remember reading of any arrsers saying that they'd want to see American Officers unarmed.

You can't legally buy enough hardware to kit out a SWAT team here in the UK but that doesn't stop police getting shot, does it.

Right so how many British police were shot to death in 2010? Outside of Northern Ireland 12 police have been shot to death in Britain since 1985 according to the BBC, compared to the 59 shot dead in the USA in 2010 alone. So if it isn't the ease with which any nutter can arm themselves (Virginia Tech being a horrific example) what is it that makes Americans kill so many more of their police officers?

I can't think of one person on these boards, ever, who has expressed any preference whether US police are armed or not, still less suggested that US police should be disarmed.

And to be frank, your waving these dead officers around on the end of a stick in an attempt to provoke yet another argument about the relative merits of the United States of America and the United Kingdom, is disgraceful.

Bigger targets? EDIT it also seems like the larger female officer has hung her coat on her pistol....


How the hell are those two cop's?

If they were wearing Blue Serge, i personally, would find it highly embarrassing that fat freaks like those two were allowed to walk the Queen's highway's.

Jesus, the bottom one looks like something out of Little Britain I'd be surprised if he could reach anything more than a gentle amble.

By the look of the backgrounds on the photos they drag the metermaids and evidence room jockeys out during parades and fairs etc.

Look at the bottom one rubbing his hands together at the though of the Kreme donut float passing by.

Looks like he is sporting the new bullet proof waistband.
I am trying to visualise him attempting to draw his weapon from that holster position, given that his gut,moobs etc would prevent his arm from rotating, slightly off subject, he must need assistance (a) to wipe his arse (b) tie his laces .

Looks like our Police want to be American
Pretty sure the one on the right used to be a fat arse storeman in Donnington,moons ago.

'trouble is they really believe that the SAS could learn a thing or two from them.

It's very hard to shoot a British Cop. Especially when they are stuck behind a desk doing paperwork or trying to shepherd a PCSO away from an old people's home to where crime is actually going on. How long since you spotted a cop out and about? Hardly any round our neck of the woods. (Isn't always a bad thing.) :)

You could write a book perhaps even do a doctorate on why so many police officers get killed in the States. One thing is for certain firearms crime has sod all to do with the availability of firearms, because otherwise Switzerland would be empty, and there would not be many people left in Austria, France or Germany.
