Police should follow the USA

I write about the recent atrocity in France.

A lorry, driven purposefully at speed into unsuspecting bystanders, killing and maiming countless people, should prompt the British people to be extremely concerned about similar disturbances happening in our country.

With the massive influx of various nationalities it is difficult to introduce our rigorous laws, particularly if such disciplines do not exist in the countries they have vacated.

It will not take long for the criminally-minded element to comprehend our British weaknesses.

Our police forces should be reinforced and trained for all eventualities.

If necessary, they should adopt the harsher US-style of handling such disturbances.
