... and how cops are armed to protect us

 

By SIMON HUGHES

 

GUNS at the ready, protective shields raised, and cloaked in bullet-proof Kevlar, cops launch a swoop in London yesterday.

 

The chilling scene shows the extraordinary lengths police must now employ to tackle vicious armed mobsters on the streets of 21st-century Britain.

 

The officers — from Scotland Yard’s elite SO19 firearms squad — looked more like soldiers as they pounced on suspected Jamaican Yardie gangs.

 

Each wore a helmet designed to resist bullets and shrapnel, and protected their faces with reinforced Perspex masks and fireproof balaclavas.

 

All were dressed from head to toe in flame-resistant overalls and also sported bullet-proof and knife-proof vests.

 

Two suspected Yardie leaders were among 13 people arrested in dawn raids at Harlesden, Kilburn, Wembley and Willesden, in North West London.

 

More than 400 armed officers swooped at 13 addresses in the blitz on drug and gun crime across the borough of Brent, scene of 56 recent gun attacks.

 

Met Police Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur said: “This operation sends out a clear message to those engaged in crime involving firearms.

 

“We will continue to mount operations against those who bring so much fear and misery to London communities.”

 

In Oxford, eight men were arrested in dawn raids carried out by more than 100 police.

 

The operation was part of a co-ordinated crackdown on robbery and assault suspects. All of those held were Asians in their late teens and early 20s.

 

Meanwhile Scotland Yard claimed it was winning the war on black-on-black crime.

 

Figures show the number of arrests by officers in Operation Trident, which investigates such incidents, quadrupled in the first two months of this year

whatever man, criminals got all that shit too, what do you expect, the cops to run in with billy clubs and harsh language?

cop's do over-do it, and im hardly a fan of the present situation, but dude's are people just trying to protect themselves as well.

the other night im watching this fox special on riots, and in all these instances, there are like 5 cops, surrounded by 100 people rioting, trying to hit the cops with sticks, rocks, etc. and this is over like, football games, and completely un-police related shit....ya know what, if i'm a cop, and there are a hundred dudes trying to fuck me up cause the canucks lost? i'm lighting motherfuckers up. fuck that shit.

 

hating cops is for 16year suburbanites and amadas dialo's mother.

se_four,

sorry, that wasnt supposed to be pointed at you at all, just in general. i've read more than enough ignorant rants for 15 year old 'anarchists' on the board to know that it would be applicable to someone.
