Should The Police Be Armed!
What happened two days ago was utterly disgusting and the work of a psychopath or need not only help, but from what I can see, to be locked away for life! That said these cases are very, very rare and I think the answer is not that the police should be armed, but that there is better communication and due care taken. It seems that Dale Cregan was hiding in an area where family and friends lived and therefore I think, if anything we have learned from this it is that due care must be taken to visiting the area of any reported crime where people may be in hiding and where gangs are known to reside. In those cases being armed and/or having extra backup may be the key
