Here’s what I don’t understand; what precisely is the kind of training do these officers have in terms of constraints in using their firearms? Is it just the case of the lead officer handing them arms and telling them to go enjoy themselves? Is understanding accountability for misuse of arms a hard aspect to grasp? Are we watching a gradual transformation in Britain to a police state? What is all the more appalling is for the Home Secretary – a person with no moral/ethical foundation whatsoever – to put her thumb on the scale by going on the defensive of the officers who seem to be questioning their accountability under the law “period”. But then again as the old saying goes ; GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out) so the hope from this end is for Britain to finally get rid of its garbage.
Just a thought!
