Britain vs. USA


On Frontline yesterday they had a segment about the New Orleans Police and corruption and unwarranted brutality.  I could not help wondering why there is such a difference between our law enforcement and that of the British during the most recent rioting in the UK.  The NOPD has brutalized and even killed indiscriminately. On the other hand GB is considering the appropriate punishment for the riotous behavior of youth last week.

One of the considerations is to have the perpetrators clean up areas affected by their behavior in orange jumpsuits. There is debate about the leniancy of this punishment. Some feel that jail time is more appropriate. But at least it is being considered.

Of course another huge difference between the USA and GB is the unavailability of guns both to the police and the populous in England.

Thanks NRA.
