Two unarmed female police officers were fatally wounded last week as they responded to a routine call about a burglary in Manchester, England Police.
Manchester officers PC Fiona Bone, 32, and PC Nicola Hughes, 23, walked into an ambush, and were showered with bullets and a grenade.
The killings have sparked a national debate in England over whether serving police officers should now be armed.
In the United States, the Obama Administration through the Eric Holder Justice Department, has regularly argued in Federal Court that the Second Amendment applies ONLY to the U.S. Military. Obama believes that neither citizens nor cops have a Constitutional right to keep and bear firearms. Yet the liberal media gets upset when we say that Obama is “UnAmerican”. I will go a step further. Obama is a liberal fascist subversive.
As of today, my right to free political speech is protected by the Constitution. But the liberal fascists want that to end protected free speech and freedom of the press too. See this online petition to shut down FOX News for details.
Once most citizens of a country are brain washed by radical subversives, it’s very difficult to change the culture. Both the education systems and the media, but entertainment and press are controlled by leftist radicals.
Lancashire Police Federation chairman Rachel Baines said: “In Lancashire we do not support the idea of routinely arming police officers. “I am sure every frontline officer has felt more vulner-able in the last few days, but when we sign up to be a police officer, we regularly put our lives on the line as part of the job.”
Retired Accrington Detective Inspector Jim Oldcorn, 69, agrees police should concentrate on keeping as many guns off the streets as possible.
He said: “As far as I am concerned, if you are waving a gun around, then you are more likely to be shot at. “What most people forget is that each police force has a dedicated firearms unit they are able to call upon at any time. “I served 34 years with the police before I retired in 1997 and, as far as I am concerned, if the firearms department were looking for volunteers, I would be at the back of the queue.
“We don’t want to end up with a gun culture like America, or Eastern Europe.”
Dale Cregan, age 29, has been charged with the murders of PCs Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone and father and son David and Mark Short. So much for not gun control and the absense of a gun culture in the UK.
Wake up America!
