That's like asking;- do we need cops with footwear to respond to any suspected crime.

Armed police carry guns as part of their everyday equipment and are meant to be regarded as personal protection weapons.

The perpetrators of the crimes which you listed could all very well be armed and sufficiently dangerous/desperate to use their firearm/knife to avoid arrest.

I'm certain that the hysterical Rayshard Brooks would have used a firearm if he'd had one.

In such circumstances an officer must be able to respond to deadly force with deadly force.

Try policing the black infested streets of our cities without a firearm.

Hello M:

When Wendy's called to complain about a guy sleeping in the drive through, they COULD have responded with an UNARMED person who woulda woke Rayshard up and let him walk home..

No harm, no foul. Nobody dead.

Since when does anyone let drunk drivers walk home? This isn't 1975.

The problem lay with the police officer who could not control himself when under pressure.

Not only did he discharge his firearm once but he did so at least twice.

A gun in the holster of a self-disciplined and well trained police officer is of no more danger that one locked up in a cabinet.

In today's crazy world of extremist international terrorists and resentful, violent blacks a PPW is an essential piece of equipment for all those involved in law enforcement.

Here's one for you;- In 1917 Officer Keith Palmer was tasked with guarding the Houses of Parliament, London, England.

Although common sense should have made it clear that the most likely person to attack the building housing the British Government would be an armed terrorist(s).

But no, this lion, led by donkeys was sent on duty unarmed and was stabbed to death when he tried to stop the Muslim terrorist entering Westminster.

Man, man oh man.

Why didn't their liberal run city train their cops better or have them stand down?

Was it because they wanted him dead as a political issue to then say they are the only ones who can fix it?

Gun slingers are old fashioned. But when anyone might have a gun, a cop who needs to arrest people better have one too.

Ask your liberal city that trained them.
