    Dunno that it would bother me these days, though I'd have certainly agreed with you in past about coppers carrying guns in the UK. The Garda have been armed for many a year but the Republic is not like down town New York with trigger happy cops. As long as the selection process is stringent to vet each officer on a continuous basis, as long as the training is of the requisite quality so we don't give guns to glorified security guards then fine I say.
    It would need forethought and investment, not a crappy two day course for PC Plod, probably the ROI model is the one we would have to follow if we ever went down that path. If it means an officer can assert himself/herself when faced with overwhelming numbers then fine, if it means an officer can drop a terrorist on sight ditto. I've not gone all Daily Mail on you, it is just a recognition of changing times. I wouldn't feel my rights were being infringed by such a move.

    15 year old white girl has been raped twice in one night in different
    attacks by Asian men in Birmingham during a horrifying ordeal last Tuesday.

    One of the Asians in a passing car had been asked for help by the victim.

    The main issue i can see with arming all police is what the response would be in neighbourhoods where people are suspicious of police and still see them as racist. They may arm themselves for 'protection' and then we could be facing a surge in gun crime.

    Lot of trouble in East London in last few days.
    A riot broke out in Leyton after youths were denied entry into
    an end of term disco at a school and then there was a riot in Hackney
    last night after a protest about a young Black man who died during a recent police arrest.

    None of the normal gardai out on the streets carry guns. I think it's only special units and detectives. Are detectives not armed in Britain?

    2 more acid attacks in London over the weekend.

    Sadly a take away driver might by permanently blinded.

    One of the attackers was a 14 year old for fecks sake.

    Also 21 youths have been murdered in London this year.

    All of the victims either stabbed to death or shot are black.

    Did the actually bomb McD's?. I knew about the pubs but thats a new one on me. I once knew someone years ago who refused to eat at McD's because he thought they funded the IRA?!.
