No Soft Option
It weighs slightly less than a cricket ball, and comes at you twice as fast.
The L5A4 baton round - the plastic bullet - is now available to every police force in the land. Every policeman is trained in the techniques and tactics of its use.
In Arms of the Law last week, the Chief Constable of the West Midlands,
Geoffrey Dear , told Brass Tacks what converted him to the need for these weapons, and the circumstances under which he would fire them.
Six years after the first inner city riots in St Paul's, Bristol, Britain seems to be arming its police against the collapse of inner city policies. Will the use of plastic bullets on our streets become a turning point in our policing we will live to regret?
Tonight Geoffrey Dear joins Peter Taylor and the Brass Tacks audience to confront the consequences of their use - for the police, for the public, and for the Queen's peace.
