Where did he get 300 extra police officers?

Where did he get  120 other officers for a “violent crime task force”?

Easy by having $150million, and not forgetting he is doing everything in his power to reduce stop and search, by, er, increasing stop and search. Clever eh?

Why $? Why not £?

There is a vast difference between holding a person down then deliberately maiming them and shooting someone who is attacking you.

There is indeed a difference. One is self defence the other is punitive maiming.

I am simply making the point that one reading of your words indicates that it is OK to shoot someone in the knee if they are being held down.


Bad choice of words on my part. I was referring to the practicalities of hitting someone with a shot to the knees and a shot to the body.

OK. It remains, however, that some things are self defence and some things are not. I don't think it is right to accept the use of vigilante punishments. Punitive actions are the role of the state with its checks and balances.

Useless, I've got both on my iPad. You know, that American produced bit of kit. They must have a really parochial view of the world, a bit like George W. Bush.

So you have Blaze on your Ipad? That puts you to the right of me.
