Thanks Talisman, in reference to your introductory phrase "agitated violent offenders", in direct reference to this case, apparently you are in possession of information about this specific incident that is not currently in the "public arena". Could you please let us know more about your source, and where/how we can perhaps corroborate your information?

GG.

Incidents in Australia have caused ambulance and paramedic personnel to demand action be taken against those assaulting health professionals in the street, in ambulances and hospitals. Most if not all are in states of extreme agitation and paranoia. Even their companions are violently attacking professionals going to the aid of seriously distressed patients. This has been and is still being covered by media in Australia on an almost daily basis.

Last year alone in New South Wales 174 paramedics were assaulted. Some with a variety of weapons, knives, bats, broken bottles etc. Many of these miscreants were in obviously agitated states due to drink, drugs and a combination of both. It takes no medical experience to know (and I have blood pressures monitors at home as well as being monitored in hospital and having my blood pressure soar in reaction to pain and trauma.)

The internet is there, wont quote sources but the above was in a report on violence in the Sydney Morning Herald. The figures of traumatised attacks on police, paramedics, hospital personnel are well documented.

I don't suspect that physical reaction to traumatic incidents is confined to Australia but I am taking examples here in context of what I previously mentioned.

Agitated violent offenders frequently raise their blood pressure, heart rate and overall detrimental situations to their health and the well being of others; others who are seldom accounted for when reports such as this come into the public arena. I have said it before. You can taser me, pepper spray me, hit me with a baton but for G-D's sake don't hit me with any 9mm bullets.

Inquiry launched after man pepper-sprayed by police dies

Scotland’s police watchdog has launched an investigation after a man died in hospital the day after being pepper-sprayed by police.

The police investigations and review commissioner (PIRC) said Alan Hay, 50, from Dalbeattie, was rushed to hospital when he fell ill minutes before he was due to be checked in at Barlinnie prison the day after his arrest over a disturbance.

Police Scotland officers used a pepper spray incapacitant known as Captor PAVA during the incident, which took place on Monday.

It is the second recent death involving Police Scotland’s use of pepper spray. The force is under criminal investigation by the PIRC and the Crown Office after the death of Sheku Bayoh, who died last year as he was being held down on a pavement, seconds after being hit with pepper spray and CS gas.

I know this pic is the US version of police (I couldn't find a uk one) but it just shows the increasing militarisation of the police forces over the years.

theres is absolutely no justification for armed police to attend minor incidents and it will only increase the chances of something going wrong.
they tried to justify it (at first) in rural areas by saying they had to back up to rely on but when they would normally reach for a baton or taser they could now as easily reach for a gun. only seemed to have happened after "police Scotland" was created too so I think macaskil has to pull his finger out and reign in House before some one gets killed by some frightened copper.

agree too that the "security" measures for the CW games take zero account of the locals in the area and can only lead to more animosity towards the police.

The pictures here show an armed response officer dressed in a fashion common to all special police forces world wide. In the U.S.A. due to all powerful gun lobby the average police force is generally out gunned by whatever street gangs, militias or just plain school kids.

I have inadvertently been present during an armed robbery that went over my head until I saw the arrival of the police. During a bank robbery of my local bank in Melbourne , my friend also from Glasgow was wounded when he jumped in front of an old lady as the bandit for no reason other than that she was there opened fire on her. Do police need fire arms? While crims are willing to gun down old ladies in broad daylight in order to get some cash for drugs, booze or holidays then 100% yes.
