    I recall Mr Blair making a similar faux par some years back.
    As I recall nearly all firearms officers were going to surrender their firearm authorisation and even after a swift about turn many still did.
    All firearm officers know and understand that if they have to pull the trigger then there will be a thorough investigation. If an officer acts unlawfully he/she know that they will not be shown any favour and they will face prosecution. This is how it is and rightly so.
    What is unacceptable is that any officer be used as a political pawn!
    They will be going through an extremely stressful time as it is without the feelings of betrayal thrown in. If the officer has not committed an offence he should be treated with respect and supported through this ordeal by all concerned, especially the Senior Ranks!
    The is a need for truth, honesty and openess no argument!
    If this officer has been treated unfairly and arrested unnecessarily then how can we ask or expect our officers to bear the responsibility of carrying firearms.
    They have already placed themselves at a great risk without being pegged out as sacrificial lambs!
    Let’s hope “Independent” means exactly that!
    We will all watch with great interest!

    The politicians are sh*tting themselves in case all their close protection teams hand in their tickets that’s the only reason behind their sudden attention. If they could pass a law to allow gun toting G4S Guards on minimum wage they would.
