    • Hmm says:

      Police have guns to protect themselves and to protect the public. There is hot headed people out here with no good intentions especially towards the police. Why should they not be armed to protect them self? Think!

  5. Ok then.. says:

    Now they launching probe. But when officers obviously used tasers inappropriately against the public, no probe was launched. They say if premier want to question it, let him question it. Ok then.
