During my busy day yesterday I managed to catch a bit of the late news & they were looking at the fact that Raoul Moat had been shot twice by to of the armed responce officers with the new tazer shotguns that they were not trained to use.
In atddition to this the device has not been approved by the home office for police use & furthermore it is not available here in the UK & they were not sure how that force were in possetion of them!
Oh what a nice old mess.
Let alone the mass of people that are now saying the bloke is some sort of dead folk hero, I am not going to rubish the police-(as I know there are far too many of them on this site as members)
What I would say is that the bloke had a troubled mind & was very twisted, somthing in his he's head clicked & he went off on one, the silly thing is that this all started with a pretty small offence which led to him spending time in the "Big House", his girfriend seemed to have had enough & found a more stable replacment-the rest is history.
In the view of LWC (which counts for jack I know)! the guy must have felt he was very wronged to have followed the path he did-which as I have said began with a small offence.
I in no way agree with what he did, I am just trying to understand how the events unfolded that led him down this sad path of destruction.
