A blanket gang patch ban, raising the drinking age to 20, harsher penalties for fleeing drivers, and Tasers for all cops are some of the election year suggestions from the Police Association.
- Blanket gang patch ban – no. the state should not dictate what you can wear in public.
- Drinking age to 20 – no. Give it up. Parliament has now voted three times in 12 years for an age of 18.
- Harsher penalties for fleeing drivers – yes. There needs to be a greater incentive for people not to flee from the Police, and end up killing themselves and/or others.
- Tasers for all cops – possibly. I’d like to see data to back that up. How often does a cop have a situation where a taser would have been useful and justified?
