Good force deserves pay rise
In America a woman in pyjamas approaches a policeman and is shot by that officer’s senior partner — a peaceful woman is killed.
In Australia a man brandishing a samurai sword slices a policeman’s head open and is tasered by that officer’s junior partner — a dangerous man is arrested.
If Australia does not want to be condemned to become the worst of what is America, our junior police officer deserves a commendation and our police service deserves a pay rise. Mark Dyer, Rockingham
