I know unarmed police makes perfect, politically-correct sense to bleeding heart progressives in jolly old England, but let’s face it, to normal people it is stupid!
During Saturday night’s terrorist attack at London Bridge, police on the scene, armed only with batons, ran away from the terrorists for their own safety as civilians were clobbering the knife-wielding terrorists with chairs and anything else handy.
Why didn’t the police officers present do their sworn duty?
Why does Britain issue guns to its military? Shouldn’t those soldiers be carrying flowers.
Guardian reporter Lisa O’Carroll is at Borough Market, where she says multiple stabbings have been reported:
Witnesses said they saw two men stabbing people outside the well-known Roast restaurant in Borough market. A chef from the nearby Fish restaurant said: “I saw two guys with big knives downstairs outside Roast. They were stabbing people. The police were running away, they were community police. They were normal officers, they were running away.
“The guy with the knife was killing two people. We were shouting ‘stop, stop’ and people threw chairs at them. (Armed) police came and shot straight away.”
Police ran away from the attackers, leaving citizens to defend themselves. https://t.co/b5Y0ghAxaG
