The price of arm­ing the po­lice

The Observer - - Comment & Analysis -

How right Roger Graef is to ques­tion Cres­sida Dick, the Met­ro­pol­i­tan po­lice com­mis­sioner who pro­poses to de­ploy armed po­lice on our streets (“Tot­ing guns, ram­ming mopeds. This is no way to build trust in our po­lice”, Com­ment, last week). As Graef says: “Po­lice are only hu­man. They make mis­takes. When firearms are in­volved they can be fa­tal.” Bene­dict Birn­berg Lon­don SE3
