After reports that the head of the Police Federation, Steve White, has called for tasers to be issued to all frontline officers “in light of the increased terrorism threat”, one Twitter user responded as follows:
“If someone’s wearing a suicide vest, the last thing you should use on them is a taser!”
Good point, well made. Back to the drawing board, Mr White?
(Just think what could happen if these terrorists had guns as well…)
