National to arm Police (now Garrett has been discredited, someone has to do raw meat law and order policy)
Collins backs pistols in all police cars
Police Minister Judith Collins says she supports the idea of lock boxes for pistols in all police vehicles. Speaking at the Police Association conference in Wellington today, Ms Collins said the July shooting of two officers in Christchurch had highlighted the risk to police from armed offenders.
Police get 4 hours training with guns and most don’t get a psych report for that and the National Party want to arm 2700 Police cars??? Did I fall asleep and wake up in a Ku Klux Klan rally here? How dare Judith Collins use the Police shootings in Christchurch in July as the justification, in that case two Police Officers executed a random search of a stoners house and were ambushed, the ONLY way guns would have saved those two Police Officers is if the Police Officers had entered the house with guns drawn.
It's hilarious that Crusher Collins in her latest raw meat law and order policy (now that David Garrett has been discredited) argues we need to arm 2700 Police cars because 9 Officers have been shot in 2 years, that's hilarious because so far this year, 18 NZers have died from the revenue gathering polices of Police chases THIS YEAR ALONE. 18 NZers dead in a year from Police policy - nothing to see here, 9 Officers shot in two years (2 being fatal) - Crusher Collins can't arm 2700 Police cars fast enough.
By using the Christchurch shootings example to justify arming Police, Crusher Collins is actually arguing for Police to have the right to randomly search your house with guns drawn. How’s that ‘change’ feeling?
