In my previous post I talked about citizens defending themselves, and while I was away in the bush there was yet another case of our Police are being attacked with weapons.
Two police officers ran for their lives when a routine callout resulted in a man allegedly chasing them with a metre-long samurai sword.
The officers were responding to reports of a man lying naked and drunk on the front lawn of an Otara property.
The incident comes after four separate attacks on New Zealand police officers this month – two involving machetes.
Police Commissioner Howard Broad suggested the machete assaults could be copycat attacks.
Two things are abundantly clear.
Firstly that criminals think that it is now a valid response to interest in them from the constabulary is for them to attack them with sharp, lethal instruments. The liberal panty-waists like Simon Power and his ilk will of course think the solution is for them to pass a law banning sharp weapons and making it illegal to attack Police. They ignore the fact that criminals don’t follow laws and in some respects we already have those laws in place. Banning sharp weapons will further dis-arm the general, law-abiding population, allowing criminals to have even more control over them. The answer is actually to arm our Police and stop pretending wer are living in the crime free fantasy land that inhabits Simon Power‘s and other panty-waists minds.
The second thing that we need to understand here is that if criminals are quite prepared to attack Police officers then they of course are completely willing to similarly attack a largely unarmed population without out fear of retribution or injury. Ordinary citizens are left to call on the Police for protection when it is abundantly clear that the Police are ill-equipped to defend even themselves.
The hard questions need to be asked and politicians need to step up or get out of the way.
Of course what is not mentioned is the underlying cause of all this mayhem. I bet dollars to a knob of goat-sh*t that methamphetamine abuse is the common link in all of these attacks. With long-term use the ability to reason and rationalise is destroyed…that is why you get these nutters going psycho on the Police with weapons…they have lost the ability to reason. They also know that mostly the Police are not equipped to deal with such attacks. Arming the Police would firstly protect the officers, and secondly provide a necessarily scary deterrent to shock even the most P-addled criminal into thinking twice about taking a knife to a gunfight.
The pinko panty-waists will now say that criminals will simply carry guns. Newflash…they already are…and guess what? They don’t have licences and aren’t vetted and sure as hell don’t keep their weapons safely locked away. All that only happens with law abiding citizens.
