    Brits see police with sidearms. Oh, the horror.

    A video of two armed Cheshire police officers strolling around Tesco in Helsby has been branded ‘outrageous’ by shocked members of the public.

    The 25 second clip was uploaded to YouTube over the weekend by Dr Steven Peers who was shopping in the store when he spotted the two officers casually roaming the aisles on what appeared to be on their lunch break.

    In the video, the pair are approached by customers, one of whom says: “The fact you’re wearing a gun, I don’t like it.”

    The officers are seen listening to the woman before replying, "OK that’s fine.”

    As the police walk off, other concerned customers can be heard asking: “Who are they planning on shooting? That’s a bit alarming - armed police in Tesco.”
    Orwellian


    Dr Peers told The Chronicle: “I think it’s outrageous really, it’s Orwellian. Equipment like that should be locked away safely, not worn by police walking around Tesco scaring people, especially children.

    “The fact they think they can just walk around like that on their lunch hour - it’s absolutely outrageous. We don't want an armed police force in this country. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”

    Superintendent Martin Cleworth of Cheshire Police said: “As part of our Alliance Armed Policing arrangements with North Wales Police, firearms officers will routinely carry a side arm with them at all times when on duty.

    “This might include when they may pop into a local supermarket to collect refreshments. Any other weapons are stored securely in a safe in the vehicle itself.

    “This is our standard operating procedure that has been in place for some time.”
    Everything turns into a shitshow.

        The Brits have nothing to fear. Those Bobbies are under strict orders to only shoot non-moslems.
        Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.

            Most police officers in the UK don't want sidearms on their person, they believe it can escalate situations that non-gun carrying officers would be forced to defuse without drawing. This must be some kind of pilot program or a Welsh thing. Armed street cops are a rare thing in England.

              The amount of fucktardery in that article is...beyond astonishing. Guess what, guns in holsters don't scare kids, but you know what does? A raving lunatic.

              Bet these fucking imbeciles would be the first to jump behind those guys if something happened. I can't stand the stupidity these days.

              Just....WHAT? WTF?

                    this is in the same police district and the story ran in the same paper, on the same day as the scary cop with gun story.

                        If I recall, they needed their (our) weapons not so long ago.
                        I wonder what happened to make them lose sight............

                        Maybe they just castrate British men or are they just born without balls?
                        Or is it that the media reports only on this type of super metrosexual quasi-men?
