DeKalb Police to get weapons upgrade
From the AJC
Cool. This should help somewhat. Though, they still will be outgunned. I think all officers should be issued not only a sidearm, but a sub-machine gun as well. Something like a SWAT style MP5 should be given to all officers, and SWAT should upgrade as well. That would at least bring officers in line with what is on the street. I think it also would be a moral booster for officers. It would signal that the leadership wants them to be equipped to do the job right. It would also send a signal to the “Thug Nation” that there could be a serious price to pay when running up on the cops.
