    To think this happened in the Country were their King once gave them the basic human rights to bear arms and gave our Founding Fathers the basis for our 2nd Amendment! And we think it couldn't happen here!

    Wow, not only do they have to worry about criminals with guns, but with grenades as well - yup, gun control works.

    Grenade aside it's hard to argue with 5 LEO gun deaths in 10 years vs. our 500+. :-/

    In England, the criminals are supposed to nicely give up and surrender whenever the nice policeman tells them to. That's the UK.

    Can imagine why anyone would want to be a constable in the UK.

    I hate this type of thinking... they don't want to arm their officers even after something like this happens!? I wish someone had a brain over there.

    1. We have 5x the population so ratio is 100:5
    2. 9/1/01 72 officers killed in one incident 28:5
    3. UK has been busted before falsifying crime reports.
    4. How many citizens have stopped crimes in progress in US vs. UK
    Anyone else?

    This can't be happening in a country where guns are outlawed.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
