WITH the killing of two police officers and increasing incidence of serious attacks on men and women of the service, it must now have crossed the minds of our parliamentary eunuchs that if we cannot protect the police, we the general public cannot be protected.

With an increasing number of our own drug-fuelled lunatics cosseted by the PC brigade being augmented with foreign brainwashed religious maniacs, policing is now an even more dangerous occupation than ever before. The reluctance to arm the general rank and file of police personnel may have merit, however, a message must be broadcast that a very draconian view will be adopted for the murder or injury to a member of the service, not excluding the death penalty. Evidence is clearly visible that with the recent riots and religious rantings becoming even more physical and the racial shackles the service is labouring under, it is imperative from the public perspective that police have better protection from the law than is current.
