Permission Granted





Here's a radically awesome idea. Give police response officers (the ones in cars that can respond on blue lights to emergencies) guns. A handgun in a safe in the glove box. They see or attend a potentially lethal incident and radio control room to say:

--------------------------------------------

"Patch through to ACPO gun authority please!"

(Pause)

"Assistant Chief Constable Lorraine Bottomley speaking. Go ahead."

"Ma'am, I'm facing two men armed with knives. Request permission to arm."

(Pause)

"Authorisation granted."

---------------------------------------------

Or am I being hopelessly naive?

  1. 'Hopelessly naive', I fear!

    Either that or, 'still wearing rose-tinted specs for the desire to see justice being done'.
