I tell you!
Leaders of the Police Federation, which represents rank-and-file officers, will vote next month on a proposal that every uniformed frontline officer should be offered training in the use of Tasers, though some may choose not to carry them.
Yeah, that'll stop a couple of jihadi-minded assholes with knives or guns, you bet.
But wait! It gets better!
Some senior officers are believed to support the idea in theory, but one police leader said chief constables would be mostly opposed.
The police chief, speaking anonymously, told the Guardian: ‘The idea of arming every police officer with a Taser is alien to 200 years of police culture. It is a stepping stone to arming the police – something strapped to your hip that looks like a firearm is a huge shift in what we stand for.’
I'll leave this to you, I don't really want to contemplate it further at the moment.
