Every so often we get freak occurrences. This week’s ones are assaults on cops.
Then, after the freak occurrences, comes knee-jerk political responses. “We’re gonna do something about it”, they say.
Is it just me, or is it simply that weird shit happens occasionally and all we should do is shrug our shoulders and say “weird shit happens occasionally”.
Or do we get our politicians to pass laws to stop it from happening again? I mean, assault on police is illegal now. Should it be made more illegal than what it is now?
