Even if armed, officers never stood a chance
EVEN if the two police officers, Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone, who were shot had been armed they wouldn't have stood a chance.
It was the same as that policeman who was shot as he sat in his patrol car at the side of the road – Raoul Moat was ready to shoot as soon as the police officer arrived.
Guns are only of use if there is some kind of information or knowledge that could prepare them for what lies ahead.
I wonder if most police officers feel they have enough on their plate already and would be happy for things to be left as they are.

If in the course of a shift they shoot someone for whatever reason, it opens up a whole can of worms that would be better left alone.

The Telegraph says
Would the arming of police offices actually protect them, as this reader questions? Would you feel safer with armed officers on the streets, or open to a new danger?
