I'll have a look in a sec, but it's probably going to be a big up-law about this our country's serving men shouldn't need to be protected since we all love our Army, if it wasn't for them we wouldn't be british.There's a thread on WHT too with some really strange views.
All UK cops have guns, they need them. And since the attackers had weapons it was best to protect themselves.I was shocked to read that the two attackers were shot by a police officer. Since when do the policemen in UK wear guns?
Nearly all UK police officers (outside of Northern Ireland) do not carry guns, They called an armed squad to deal with the situation.
Not all UK cops have guns, CubicWebs is wrong. Normal police on the streets don't carry a gun, we just have armed response teams that deal with cases where firearms are present.
That's why it states in the bbc article that police arrived, then armed response arrived.
I stand corrected sorry, I thought cops always had a gun. And there was a topic on the sun about this in 2009 aha shows how much I read the news. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/mysun/2544963/Should-UK-cops-carry-guns.htmlNot all UK officers are armed. There are armed units (SO15) that carry firearms. The majority of officers do carry a pepper spray and there are officers in every command area that carry tazer guns but only the specialist units carry actual firearms.
I'm finding it hard to believe what the media is saying about this situation.Heard about that, could barely speak. That's the strangest terrorist attack I've heard of as everything I read indicates one target and one target alone. Where I come from we call that murder, not really a terrorist attack. Perhaps I'm just confused. My prayers are with the friends and family of the soldier. That kind of thing just makes me sick.
Sorry but the Media doesn't make shit up about serious things like this.@MartinD I never said it wasn't an act of terrorism I'm just stating that with all the information the media is coming out with it's hard to tell what's complete bullshit and what's accurate information, I've also fixed the above post so it makes more sense.
