Quote of the day

in response to
"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."

Keith, in comments, says
Taser = Cattle Prod
Citizens = cattle

Does seem to sum it up, doesn't it?

I'm all for that idea.

Police can't carry a gun unless they are issued a carry permit under the same rules that non-police can be issued one.

And at the end of a year the statistics are plotted.

If the ratio of civilians who applied and were granted carry permits is lower then the ratio of police who applied and were granted carry permits, the police permits are taken away starting with the highest ranks and moving downward until the ratios are in balance, heh, heh, heh.
