I was reading up a bit, as I do, and found that your cops don't carry guns. Down here, it is extremely rare to see a copper without a gun. Hell, we even give guns to cops who complete half the training and only work from 6 to 12.

So, should a regular patrol officer carry a firearm?
I don't think it's necessary over here since guns are banned from the general public. All officers have tazers, which I think is enough without human rights getting involved. It is very rare we get police officers injured by guns over here. Last case that springs to mind was Raul Moat.

They don't need to here, your average citizen doesn't own a gun in the UK :p And the majority of those who do will have one illegally. We do have armed police, but they're mainly needed in cities rather than towns and villages.

Lol "our police should carry guns because it'll make TV more exciting". 

I'd say yes to that :p
Seriously, you compare the UK clips to the American ones, and you'll see how effective guns are!

The UK police are boring spoilsports and set up crappy roadblocks or stingers or pull of that gay box manoeuver.

 The Americans have epic car chase, police hanging out windows shooting at the other car, police cars ramming the suspect's car and it all ultimately ends in a huge crash.

Its not your usual Vauxhall Corsa or Ford Escort thats getting nicked either, its trucks, bulldozers, 4x4's.


But yes, guns should be carried by police

Yeah, but the American police are also have big V8 Fords, not Astra diesels. Plus they can smash their cars to bits too, ours can't.

Plus the cops here are usually chasing a chav on a stolen moped through a park, so it's not like they need guns or chunky V8 engines :p
Your correct, give them Sniper rifles and RPG's!!!

You've really taken this thread off topic... :P
You're the one who suggested giving cops guns to spice up TV shows ;)
Hehe

The police over there who are on the beat don't bother chasing someone if they see a person doing something wrong, they would rather blow the whistle to get some other cop on the beat to do the chasing or radio in for a car to chase them down lol

I think uniform is good. It makes you look smart and the school looks professional. As onetwothree said though, I think you should be allowed a stubble, beard, etc. At my school you have to be clean shaven but as he said, what harm does it make? Some boys are still allowed a beard though cos of religious reasons.
At my school for next year we have to wear ONLY BLACK OR WHITE socks. I probably wont even follow the uniform policy :P

But yeah, nothing wrong with Uniforms. Fact of life; you have to wear clothes appropriate to the situation.
Suits are legen, wait for it...

I want to know what the deal with UKIP is. Are they actually racists? Would you put them in the same basket as the BNP? I've done some research which suggests that they're quite similar, politically speaking, to the Tories and our own incorrectly named Liberal National Party. I also find it rather amusing that their largest representation is in the EU Parliament, despite them describing themselves as eurosceptics. Please enlighten me.

I say yes, they are racist. No, I wouldn't put them in the same boat as the BNP. Neither are really similar to the tories...

As for Europe, I don't really know what MEPs do tbh.

Nigel Farage, the party leader, is actually a decent politician in terms of he knows what the people want and he's out to give them it. The rest of the party are generally idiots or racist, as far as I'm aware.

As for Europe, they were up until now mainly just a protest vote, but I get the impression their gaining actual popularity. They're only really in Europe to disrupt things and cause mild chaos.
