The question is 'Should UK cops carry guns?', and one of the responses is
As a serving police officer, spats13 shares his frank opinion: "I don't think that the police should carry guns. Mainly because there is not enough respect for the police in this country. The best alternative is to issue all police officers with Taser guns.
"These are being deployed on a daily basis and hardly ever discharged. The mere threat of being tasered is often enough to stop people in their tracks. Forget the guns and bring on the Tasers. And respect the police."
Uh huh. Ok. Have at it, folks.
