The sooner all the police have hand guns too… The better. Innocent public will never have any issues with the police. Law abiding, public respecting the difficult and dangerous work our police force do will never need to fear the police being armed. They deserve as much protection as “reasonably possible” under OSH laws also.
Where the discussion gets skewed is by the dickheads who all call for “enquiries” when a fleeing fugitive gets hurt or killed attempting to evade police. Then we have the leftie MSM crying foul should an innocent bystander get hurt or killed. Yes, totally tragic when that happens… But it’s not the polices fault… It’s the fault of the fleeing fugitive acting illegally forcing the police to take actions.
Our judiciary for too long have treated criminals and especially recidivist criminals with kid gloves especially with parole… And the criminals just laugh in their faces whilst flipping them the bird , snarling obscenities and growing the entitlement chip they carry on their shoulder. These people have zero respect for the law and the police and because of the soft treatment they receive they are encouraged by the lack of credible punishment and emboldened by peers as a ” rite of passage” into various gangs.
suit them out in armour as well.As for fleeing fugitives…did you see the brazilian student in Martin Pl Sydney get tasered 7 times in the back and killed by NSW’s finest!Clown.
Well if he wasn’t running away in the first place… Maybe he wouldn’t have needed to be tazered in the first place. Simple really…
I cant split you and Travis for ‘Redneck Of The Year’!
I can’t split you and Morrissey as ‘Trojan Horse of the Year’
Did someone say “Trojan”?
Logic `aint gonna cut it here ,Gaz.
That’s what the Gestapo used to say.
Well I saw the footage of him stealing from a shop and threatening the shopkeeper at 3:30am or thereabouts, then running away as fast as he could, ignoring all directions to stop. It’s just like the fuckwits that bleeding hearts like you whinge and moan about being killed by chasing police when they take off in their car at high speed. They exited the gene pool (thankfully in most cases, and even better if they happen not to kill an innocent person) because they chose to flee, not because the police chased them. It’s their job, Einstein.
The drugged-up Brazilian was the author of his own misfortune by fleeing, just like the idiots that watch too many movies and play too many Xbox games, and think they can outrun the police. Good riddance I say – am I a late entrant in the Redneck of the Year?
he was alleged to have stolen a packet of biscuits.On the basis he ran away you believe the police were justified in tasering him in the back 7 times.Unbelievable!
Do you have any experience on the front line, blazer? of anything? Do you have experience of dealing with people in the dark hours, that are drugged up to the eyeballs, that have committed a number of crimes, that may have weapons, that may react extremely unpredictably? That may have nothing to lose or a pathological hatred of police?
I thought not – another bleeding heart wanker sticking up for the crims. I suppose you think the idiot that set fire to his house in Lake Ontario, then lay in wait and ambushed 4 firefighters, killing two, is a hero? How would the cops know what this Brazilian guy was thinking? He sure was behaving bizarrely.
You say “oh, NSW’s finest killed him over a packet of biscuits” – that’s bullshit. If it was such an innocuous act, why didn’t he just stop when told to? People make choices. Sometimes those choices are really bad and have very bad consequences. Suck it up.
it was way OTT and most reasonable people would see it that way.The Police are meant to have the intelligence to deal with situations as they are,not to extrapolate ‘what if’ scenarios.Another recent case…a blind man in the U.K was tasered because the Police though his white stick was a gun.!So they say…to justify their over reactions.
Nobody said the police were blameless, or got every decision – often made in a split-second with dire consequences if they get it wrong. You have to go to the UK and Australia to find examples which are hardly relevant. What about the two officers in Dargaville, responding to a callout about drunken idiots kicking letterboxes over and damaging cars? One was blind-sided with a brick and kicked in the head while unconscious, the other also attacked. Very nasty. Then the Hamilton incident when another policmean was king-hit from behind, could also have been very serious if not fatal. And all you do is sympathise with thugs and hug crims. You should be ashamed of yourself.
you should be ashamed of yourself for blindly accepting biased reporting at face value…e.g..blindsided by a brick has already been revealed as bullshit,- toned down to a brick was thrown.Policing is an occupation where assault is an accepted hazard.
“Policing is an occupation where assault is an accepted hazard”
That would have to be one of the worst, pinko statements I have heard to date! What a load of utter shit! There is NO occupation where assault should be an accepted hazard!!!! The only thing that has made this type of assault “acceptable” is fuckwit, pinko judges who are incapable of handing out sentences sufficient enough to deter this type of UNACCEPTABLE behavior!
Its true whether you like it or not…just like if you were a soldier going to a theatre of war you would(logical people not idiots like you)accept you are likely to be shot at or possibly killed.
“you should be ashamed of yourself for blindly accepting biased reporting at face value”
lol fucking lol. this coming from someone who just a few comments above claimed “he was alleged to have stolen a packet of biscuits” either you have accepted biased reporting on face value or you are a lier. Which are you a hypocrite or a lier?
FFS it was on video tape noddy!Wheres the lie…or do you just make things up as you go to answer for buns.
The video type that shows that he jumped the security enclosure at the shop and treatened the shop attendants. The call to police advised of a robbery and was relayed to the responding officers as a potential armed robbery. There was no allegation of stolen biscuits at the time, police did not recieve any such allegation, this is just an excuse used by mindless lefty apologists.
a ‘potential armed robbery’…do me a favour…were the coppers blind?chasing him down the street tasering him in the back….gutless cowards.
Imagine the shit fly when somebody gets shot now. With all police armed we would not have enough personnel in Police Complaints to handle it – and the lawyers would have a feast every time.
I’m thinking thank fuck the cops in Dargaville weren’t armed.If they were we’d be burying one today.
My thoughts exactly. This is galaxies away from being justification for gun-toting by 8,000 cops.
I dont hear any of the snivel libertarians or rabid lefties condeming the actions of the Dargaville scum who kicked the shit out of the two cops on Christmas day. Bet we would of if one of the precious scum had been tazed or shot in self defence.
peppper spraying a 9.y.o kid didn’t go down too well did it?
What nutter takes a 9 yr old kid to a riot???
Exactly – the fuckwits that put that kid in harm’s way are to blame. I thought only despots used human shields, but apparently some in Dargaville stoop that low.
I believe the police arrived at the location where the 9 y.o and other family members were present.The Police decided armed with their spray and tasers they could handle the situation.
My 9 yr old kid would be in the wardrobe with the rest of my family until it was all over.
it has to start first.
Heard on Christmas Eve a talk back host on a very well known radio station, virtually run his whole programme on how a Police man had smashed a car window at a booze barn check point.He had obviously only heard one side of the story,yet he was quite happy to pour petrol on the alleged incident and inflame the overall situation.I believe the upsurge in violence over Christmas on the Police, stemmed from the verbal assaults the Talk back host ran his programme on.
Who was it?
Same name as the guy from Commie RED/”greens” only in this instance it is a surname with two “L” s
I don’t do guesswork very well, PL, just tell us the name of the host. I take it there’s a Russell in there somewhere?
It’s this guy…
I’m surprised…. I thought he was a very old codger, based on his point of view.
Okay Bunswalla just trying to kill two birds with one stone.Both are culpable when it comes to rabble rousing.
If it’s the guy I think you mean PL, he’s a complete lefty idiot and I’m buggered if I know why he is on the station rather than red radio!? He continually tries to inflame situations like that of the attack on the two policemen and blame it on the government rather than the people who did it. It’s dickheads like him that have no idea what socialism really is yet they continually push the barrow thinking they are hip! I think Bruce is his first name!
Thats him alright ,he is more lefto than John Campbell.He forever sneaks in under the radar.Looks much like Mr Dumcon.
Bruce Russell. Cheers PL et al, we got there in the end…
Ah yea. Cause the types of people who get hammered on Xmas day then take part in mob attacks on the Police spend Xmas eve sitting around listening to talkback. They were probably already on the piss. Perhaps they are just shit?
“Go ahead, unarmed constrained person—make my day.”
You’re such a dick.
