Is this the face of Tasercop? was he the trigger man?
To me this is NOT the face of anyone I want to be in the Police force, how does he strike you?
Does he come across as a person weighed down with the responsibilities of an armed siege, looking for the best outcome?
Or does he look to you as he does to me, a blood thirsty gung-ho yob who is itching to pull the trigger ?
This is the sort of face I have seen too many times on drunken yobs, about the business of starting a fight, nasty, brutish and just eager to do as much damage to someone as they possibly can...
This is not the expression that we need on the faces of those who uphold the law, it is a difficult enough job to ask anyone to do but those who should be doing it should, to my mind, NEVER look like this...
This is the face of hatred, the face of Papa Baby Docs enforcers, the face of totalitarian state police who care little if anything for the people that they are supposed to protect!
Seriously look at him, would you want that face anywhere near your life/family? I wouldn't!
It is the expression of the animal rage and blood lust that lies under the surface of far too many of the people who have positions of power over us, we have seen it before in the Hunt protest policing and various other places where confrontational situations have occurred.
It is time these (people) were weeded out of the Police service and cooler heads put in their place.
Was he, or someone like him, the one who tasered Mr Moat? I am sure he would have if he could have, aren't you?
Funnily enough out of all the pictures I have seen of Mr Moat if you had put the worst of them beside this face and asked me to choose who was the more dangerous to my well being... I would unhesitatingly have answered this one!
No wonder they waited till it was dark, eh!
Mr Raoul Moat was undoubtedly a bad and dangerous problem for society to deal with, but it should have been the duty of the Police as PEACE OFFICERS to arrest this man to stand trial for his crimes. Society needed to see what if any reasons he had before pronouncing sentence on him, (I will agree that such sentences that are available are too lenient for this type of crime) society needed his 'myth/legend', call it what you will, to be defused in the undergrounds popular imagination! It was a stupid act to leave doubts in anyone's mind as to whether the death was 'fair' or not, for that only leaves the door ajar it does not close it!
I do not believe that a line will ever now be able to be drawn under this affair, too many people do not believe the Police versions of events in the general run of life and dealings with them, and this could have been completly televised/recorded so there was no doubt in anyones mind...do not tell me that it would have been too graphic, they televised 9/11 and 7/7 didn't they?
Sanitising death in such circumstances does society no favours!
Thanks to Rantin Rab for finding the picture
