I mentioned├é┬árecently├é┬áthat I have a general interest in├é┬áthe├é┬ápolice forces of the world.
A month ago I posted about the fact that Britain was instrumental in arming ├é┬á& training the police several middle eastern countries and hinted that the intentions of these often repressive countries in gaining input in democratic policing was probably a veneer, especially as the current troubles were bringing the attention of the world on the repressive & brutal tactics of our middle eastern police cousins.
The Telegraph reports that police officers shot two civlians in a ‘drive-by’ shooting. It doesn’t say whether they were injured or killed.
It doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident.
