Actually it was the Watertown PD which crippled and near fatally wounded the MBTA officer in the process of managing to shoot everything but speedbump & flashbang. Every WPD officer was forced to requalify after that fiasco and several desk jockies took multiple tries according to a reliable source of mine.They lit up one of their own while they were looking for Tsaernav.
At least four College PD's are also armed with rifles...Funny, every morning when I walk through South Station I see Transit cops in body armor toting what look like MP5's in .45 ACP and the occasional M4's.
BPD has a SWAT team. I'm sure they would arrive on site before the State Police STOP team arrives. I'd guess that the Boston office of the FBI also has a SWAT team, as does Cambridge PD.The thing about this press is it that it advertises how vulnerable Boston is to a Mumbai or Paris style attack. The State Police would wind up doing the heavy lifting well before BPD could mount an effective response.
State Police STOP team members are farther away, so I suspect they would take even longer to arrive.Boston SWAT can take up to an hour to mobilize. They won't be doing much before state troopers, MBTA, and mutual aid from other communities already have arrived with patrol rifles.
Much different in the UK though. Patrol officers aren't armed, but they have a specific armed police unit that are called in for violent crimes. While there are guns in the UK, they're rarely used in crimes.I partially stand by cop shooting victims. Because I don't think cops in USA have any restrictions on using their guns. Why do cops need guns? To protect themselves. But we have seen so many incident they would use guns when there were no threats to their lives at all. You might say everybody wants to go home after work. But that doesn't mean you can shoot unarmed people and expect no punishment. Everytime when you see a cop approaching you at traffic stop, you will see his hand on the gun grip. You don't see that in UK given that bad guys in UK also have guns.
They are referring to both rifles and shotguns. Most police departments used to have shotguns in the squad cars, before they started using patrol rifles. Boston PD doesn't even have shotguns in patrol cars.Why are they called assault weapons in the hands of civilians and long guns in police hands ?????
But I thought barrel length helped with accuracy? They'll be screwed with a wide oneIf you hold them kind of across your chest, they're Wide Guns rather than Long Guns. Looks more like Patriots with a Flintlock cradled in arms as well.

yeah, don't go looking for OUR support in this. I have not seen ANY boston officers protesting against Healy's proclamation. this is clearly a "you scratch our back, and we'll scratch yours" sort of situation. Healy just caved in our balls, and friends we have are pretty scarce right now. THIS is a perfect time to show how these police unions stand with law abiding citizens.So much the better if LEO's get PO,d against the moonbats too. They above all, should know that the libs are not on their side.
How hard, and where, are you looking?yeah, don't go looking for OUR support in this.
