  1. First and foremost, know that your Thin Blue Line family here in the US stands proud with our blue brothers and sisters in the UK. You've been on the minds of myself and my fellow officers here ever since the news broke. You may know or may have seen our tradition where we shroud our badges with a mourning band after the loss of an officer. Today I have shrouded my badge, in honor of PC Keith Palmer and the life he gave today in the fight against the evil in this world. Let us not forget Keith and all those who run towards danger while everyone else is running away. On that note I raise a glass to our fellow officers that ran towards terror today. For those that ended the threat and those that worked to help the injured and restore peace and security, great job. "And maybe remind the few, if ill of us they speak, that we are all that stands, between the monsters and the weak"
  2. For me this just reinforces that bobbies in the big cities need arming. Now. No one knows exactly what has happened today and it isn't appropriate to speculate with "what's ifs", but this can't be allowed to happen again. Sent from my SM-G930F using the Police Community App

  4. I agree but an unarmed officer is dead and it is impossible to say until the investigation is concluded whether being armed would have made a difference to the outcome for this brave officer. What I will say, as someone who has opposed the routine arming of police officers, is that my arguments for not doing so seem to become less relevant with each passing tragedy. Getting back on track a brave officer faced up to terror and paid the ultimate price carrying nothing more than a short metal staff and a can of noxious substance. I hope in memory of PC Keith Palmer and recognising his bravery, he is awarded a gallantry medal, along with those officers who ran into danger without a second thought for their own safety and impact on their family, should it go wrong.
  5. The Deputy Commissioner glossed over the question as to whether PC Palmer was armed or not. If he wasnt armed then serious questions need to be asked.
  6. The thin blue line recognises a hero. May he find peace and his family comfort. Sent from my D2303 using Tapatalk
  7. Terrible news but we need to wait for the full facts, or as full as we will ever know. Police Officer's are a special breed, they go to work every day not knowing what it will hold. Condolences to all the victims and their familie. Ecept for the oone who was not a victim.
  8. Some photos I edited and mashed together...
  9. Ditto the above. We can never forget the ever present threat our colleagues face just a stones throw from mainland UK. The courage they possess to face crime and terror day in day out, the courage of their family and the support they bring all towards keeping people safe. It cannot be unrecognised. Again. Another cowardice attempt to take the lives of the brave and threaten unstability and disorder. All my best to the officers out there. May they be safe and lucky. Sent from my D2303 using Tapatalk
  10. News suggests he was unarmed, which I cannot for the life of me figure out why, its not like he is a new starter who hasn't had the opportunity to attend the course. This thread isn't the place to discuss arming I feel, and we should avoid detracting from the sad death of a fellow brother. Just goes to prove we never know where the threat is coming from.
  11. I agree. I don't want this thread to become another 'arming' discussion but I can't help but feel that this needn't have happened and I'm angry that it did. Not all attacks can be stopped but that officer didn't need to die. I hope action is taken and it doesn't happen again. My thoughts are with those involved and their loved ones.
  12. I watched it to, the former Editor of the Evening Standard criticising the media for too much coverage saying the BBC is playing into the hands of terrorists. Well the public have a right to be informed and for me it is a demonstration of our democracy and free speech, because tomorrow life will go on and this vile idiot will have slaughtered innocence and achieved nothing other than being reviled and despised as the inhuman dross he was. The police officer he murdered was a hero and we will remember him as such. The innocents he killed and maimed will be cherished and loved. He died for what, so he could get on the Tele and have some murdering scumbag death cult claim he died a MUG, that's what.
  13. News says he is deceased now. Good marksmanship it would appear.
  14. I think you should have a bit more respect for the hundreds of thousands of police officers who came before you - what makes you special enough to denigrate all their service for a cheap snub?
