The London’s Metropolitan police force (London) has increased its number of armed officers, but is still 600 short of its target number. However, 5100 troops are ready to step in if needed.
Wow, the UK’s mainstream media have finally reported what was set up 18 months ago
If needed? I’m curious.
The police are saying that the attack on London was over in 82 seconds.
I know the Army is good if prepped for a mission but to deploy en-mass in 82 seconds?
Besides, to actually call in the troops, apart from being a party political publicity stunt, would require the government to admit there actually was a problem that needed sorting out. And there is nothing wrong. The person wasn’t a 2nd generation immigrant or a Muslim, and was definitely working alone (they think).
However they have arrested 8 so far who had ‘nothing whatsoever to do with events’.
So when I listened to Theresa May and her B.S speech in parliament about “We are not afraid”. I’ve got a question.
Why did she run for her car leaving a junior Conservative MP Tobias Elwood (ex-mil) attempting mouth-to-mouth on PC Palmer?
Doesn’t the wonderful Theresa May know CPR?
Or was it a case of she’s more important than a simple policeman?
As for Keith Palmer.
He was ex-mil too BUT nobody gave him the right to protect himself.
He wasn’t armed. It took another to bring down the attacker.
So why wasn’t he armed?
Why can’t we the public get armed to protect ourselves and our own?
No, she isn’t afraid, she’s surrounded by guns and trained bodyguards.
Their job is to protect her.
As for the rest of us?
We’re all just active targets for bad guys to practice on,
and the politicians to shed crocodile tear for.
