Question for Her Majesty's Servants on Bullshido
So, as part of my ceaseless vigil on the Internet, I came across this story:
While I myself saw no problem here, one of the commentors, who I am assuming was an Englishman (or woman) said something to the effect of "I don't see why they had to shoot him, British police disarm crimminals with knives all the time and we don't exactly have an epidemic of dead cops on our hands".
I had SERIOUS doubts about the veracity of this remark, but then again....you lot don't issue sidearms to the Bobbies, do you? How in the name of Cromwell hasyour country NOT descended into anarchy yet? I mean, "Stop engaging in your hooliganism, miscreant, or I shall tell you to stop engaging in hooligianism again in a sharper, more authoritative tone of voice!" doesn't seem like it would work.
Any information/clarification that can be provided would be appreciated.
