British police blog
While on the topic of law enforcement, I just came across a British policeman's blog.
His entries confirm what Joyce Malcolm has told me regarding their nanny-state. Apparently an officer has to be very careful what he puts in his reports (as in avoiding naming suspects unless there is sufficient evidence).
He comments on assault against officers over there: "None of the officers in Newtown got murdered over the weekend, but 3 out of 10 (1 female officer) sustained minor injuries at the hands of drunken idiots who seem to think that people in scruffy flourescent jackets are fair game. I was single crewed because the nightshift was odd numbered (five as opposed to six officers). Would I have felt safer with a Glock and an AR15? Yes. Would people have magically sobered up and gone home when faced with the business end of a shotgun? Yes."
