Police have duty to protect public

“The real problem is not that the police acted, it was the premature and unnecessary invocation of the Terrorism law to deliberately make it fail.”

The police raided and arrested a number of people and brought charges under gun control laws for illegal weapons and they also tried to lay terrorism charges. That failed. There is a lot of public support for the actions of the police but some of that is based on the generated fear aroused by the T word.

Charges are being brought and if these people are proven guilty of possessing automatic weapons and planning to hurt people – well I guess that is not going to be a walk in the park – but serious charges require a serious case that successfully passes the tests of justice including proper evidence, etc.

We want the law applied properly.
