Please America, don't elect this dozey president

British police officers are now more armed than ever before - and the public don't like it. Officers on terrorist raids are routinely armed anyway.

Please tell Rogers to bugger off and leave us alone. We don't want to turn out like the US...

But Mike Rogers accepts the 'cultural differences' between the two countries about the use of firearms

Police should carry firearms routinely because of the targeting of officers by terrorists, a leading US Congressman has said.

Mike Rogers, who chairs the House of Representatives' Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and is seen as a potential candidate for president, told The Daily Telegraph that he was aware of the "cultural differences" between the two countries about the use of guns.
But he said: "I am of the opinion that if police officers are under a terrorist threat, I would like to see them armed. Obviously, it's concerning to me."
He admitted that as an American politician and a former FBI agent it was "perhaps… not a fair conclusion for me to come to".
But Mr Rogers added: "If you get to the place where you don't want your citizens armed here, clearly you can get to the place where your train police officers to be armed to protect themselves when they are the target of a threat."
There was uproar in Scotland last year after armed police were deployed on routine patrols.
However, in a change of policy, Police Scotland said this month that armed officers would only be sent to firearms incidents or situations where someone's life was in danger in future. Responding to that decision, John Finnie, an independent Member of the Scottish Parliament who previously worked as a police officer, said: "It is a great relief that armed police officers will no longer be seen on our streets dealing with routine police business as this was having a negative impact on community relations."
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
