We should avoid racist comments about pistols.

The police are sure having a lots of shoot outs. What's the score now? Criminals How Many? "Police" How Many?

@Comrade DDK, I know not to be the case but it does trick PopoulacesCommoners to see the constabulary as trained and becoming more of heavily armed to the hilt military force - and not about community polcing?

When you hear the police account of these killings and that of eyewitnesses, the difference is like night and day. And many believe the police are overriding the justice system and overruling the courts with these killings that are not properly investigated. Right now the police are the judge, jury and executioner. And this type of policing tends to drive crime rather than reduce it. Compare today’s crime statistics ( and police killings) to those of ten years ago. And police who are ‘forced’ or encouraged to carry out these (questionable) type killings either turn into rogue police officers or they lose their heads (drugs and alcohol abuse too) and have to quit the force. The taxpayers paid for body cams. When will the footage be made available. And since this was a special operations squad involved in the killing, at least one of the three officers involved should have had on a body cam. Or maybe the squad car that had a dash cam?

Please don’t shoot at our police force. You may well find one or two commentators to defend you on the online Tribune, but if you are dead what good is it?

So true.Bahamian police are trained to use firearms to protect life or property.If necessary shoot to kill not to wound or fire warning shots.
