It really is getting out of hand, I bet he's sniffed a couple of beer mats and rubbed viagra in his eyes to make him look hard.

Tired of hearing about that sort of stuff!!!

When u consider the UK has a population of 65 million or so it's to be expected for there to be some idiot nut-jobs after ruining someone's day!!!

Sentence - Life in clink???

NO!..... execute the b*****ds right away with a bullet to the back of the head!!!

If the authorities can't find anyone to do it for religious etc reasons then call Scalper who doesn't have a conscience!!!

Although not good this could be anything.
Two 50 year olds and my first thought is domestic - jealous ex etc
Sounds like they are not in any danger though

According to the "eye wtiness" from the BBC the guy was shouting about God/Allah just before he was tasered!


Armed police required in every city

Simple as that

Not what anyone wanted but we've ar$eholed our society in too many ways now and the rule book therefore needs to be re-written to be appropriate
I think that will be a mistake, trigger happy cops or just seriously worried/scared cops is a disaster waiting to happen, look at the amount of people who get shot in the states because the cop "felt threatened".

I've even seen a "plastic" cop (psco) in the street outside the pub i'm working CS a guy because he was shouting and the copper felt threatened/ feared for his safety..... myself the other doorman with me and the two doormen on the pub opposite all told Barbara (the town sergeant) that all the guy was doing was shouting and the plastic pig went overboard..... imagine if someone like him had been armed!

The armed police in the U.S. are a world away from the armed police in the U.K. My eldest is part of a Met. Police armed unit. You won't believe the amount of psychological assessment that takes place or the constant re-assessment let alone the time on training ranges. Don't fall into the leftist's claims of trigger happy (usually racist) cops on the streets.

Anybody who has fished the MADRAS stretch will probably have met the unofficial "bailiff" Richard, he is ARU, has been for a long time.... when he tells me that some of his "fellow officers" in ARU's aren't safe to be let out with a spud gun let alone a live fire arm because they'd rather shoot a suspect than have to deal with them i have a habit of believing him.

I have come across a few armed officers in my life from both side of the barrel (long story) some as has been stated I did not feel safe around but others I trusted 100%

The problem is, it's the bad ones that make the news the good ones are "forgotten"

Don't care about the news stories or odd bad armed copper, simply want law and order enforcing for decent normal people and the future generations

the thing is until the courts give sentences with meat on them a lot of these types of things will keep happening. look at when they brought in the knife crime laws saying if you was caught with I knife it was going to be xyz sentence the judges don't give them out citing lack of space so build more prisons help the construction industry make the familys pay for the cost of custody if they don't its min rations and stop making the prisons holiday camps where the thought of being locked up is not laid on a bed getting fed and playing video games

You usually see armed police in Leeds or other cities once the horse has Bolted, i have the utmost respect for em because they have a job to do but have to get it right or they will be pulled to bits by the Complaints Commission :(:( and we all know what its like if they shoot a lad that wouldnt hurt a fly but carried a gun just in case :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
