5. Bobbies in the UK have made do with simple batons.

Hell, getting clobbered by Officer Roid Rage and his billy club is usually more than bad enough.

I agree. It's time to nerf the cops. Take their guns away and reserve them for the SWAT teams and the backup. Only cops of sufficient rank, that have proven to be responsible, that have earned it, should be allowed access to firearms, and then only in case of emergency. And no, an 80lb elderly woman with dementia accused of walking off with $14 of merchandise doesn't constitute such an emergency. (The pigs in my hometown were the ones in the news who ripped a little-old-lady's shoulder out of its socket - so brave... /s)

ACAB.
