Rejected petition Protect our Police Force from life threatening attacks, harsher penalties needed
Stop the mindless attacks on our Police officers. We need them on our streets, we need them to protect us. They should not be subjected to what has become a war in our own country. Penalties are not harsh enough and offenders repeat time after time. The public need to make a stand THIS NEEDS TO STOP
On 8th August 2019 a 28 year old Police officer narrowly escaped with his life after being slashed across the face, hand and arm with a machete during a routine traffic stop.
Scotland Yard described the incident as a "sudden and brutal attack". This is just one example of many, so common are these that are now accepted as normal in our society, such violence such brutality should NOT be acceptable to anyone, especially the very people who are there to protect us.
