    Increased Terror Threat

    There is an increased threat in Europe, epecially France and Germany.

    These warnings are usually pretty well founded.

    Link to the story.

    Best order some more body bags we will need hundreds by the time Firearms have Rv'ed and then travelled to the scene.

    I just can't wrap my head around this policy with your country. I couldn't imagine doing this job without my weapons. Hell, every deputy at my agency is issued a handgun, shotgun, and AR-15 Rifle. There are 700 or so of us.

    I pray for all of us that none of these threats come to fruition.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Believe me the confusion is reflected in how on earth you have to manage every contact with the thought that a weapon may be present.

    Whilst things are changing here a completely armed force is a little ways off yet.

    Most rank and file officers are concerned that we approach such a day with realism and don't hang on to tradition for traditions sake.

    A bit like the helmet, probably the most impractical piece of equipment for day to day use you can imagine(has been since I joined over 28 yrs ago) but for many officers especially foot patrol, it is still a required item. Although it makes a good impact weapon!

    It's waaaaay past time someone trips across Bin Laden's cave and makes that SOB a martyr.

    Of course someone will come behind him and take up "the cause", but make his azz a martyr too.

    And the next one - - - and the next - - - and the - - - well, y'all get the idea.

    Oh, I would NOT want to deprive him of his Constitutional rights.

    Oh wait, he isn't a US citizen, is he?

    Well, not to worry, Nobama would grant him citizenship if he came over here.

    THEN I'll read him his rights.

    You have the right to remain DEAD, AZZWIPE!

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly

    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
