I'll Fix Them Little PiggiesSubmitted by eagleindistress on Thu, 08/21/2014 - 18:45
I put this under 'War and Peace' because it seems there is a war currently being waged on the People by law enforcement. Am I exaggerating? Armored personnel carriers, automatic weapons, killing unarmed teenagers, blowing up toddlers with flashbang grenades, the list goes on and on and ON!
Idea; make all police officers wear the standard blues, and arm them with Mossberg pump, twelve gage shotguns with rubber slugs only. In addition they would have tasers and handcuffs (no zip ties), and nothing else. No sticks, no knives, no real bullets. If they're lucky, an armed citizen may come to their assistance in the event that they encounter an armed criminal, but they should be able to handle the situation with their rubber shotgun slugs and tasers. Also, they drive Honda Civics or Ford Festivas from now on. They don't need to chase people through the streets risking injuring innocent bystanders, or themselves for that matter. They have technology on their side; GPS as in tracking your phone, and data bases on computers. If someone gets away from time to time, so what? It's all in the name of Public Safety
OK, maybe I'm going to a slight extreme here, but maybe I sparked some imaginations out there.
