"The mass arrests of nearly 300 people during two westside police raids last month could cost Houston taxpayers millions of dollars in legal damages, not to mention the cost to the Houston Police Department in terms of public trust, legal experts said Thursday."

"National civil rights leaders say the financial cost to taxpayers is only one repercussion of last month's arrests. An even higher cost may come in growing public distrust of law enforcement."

"One of the men was holding a halogen spotlight out the window and was pointing it at a jet in the air, Sitler said. A police officer pulled up about the same time and confiscated the light, a shotgun and some ammunition, she said."

"It was unclear, however, if the light was strong enough to blind a pilot. Navy officials said that any light would have to be extremely powerful to interfere with a military pilot's ability to fly."

Yet they confiscated a shotgun and ammo anyway?

"More arrests are expected in a continuing crackdown on organised crime, in which more than 1,000 people - including ex-members of Bulgaria's elite anti-terrorist Barrets unit - have so far been detained, according to IWPR sources."

"Significantly, justice officials are to investigate the Barrets unit, six former members of which were rounded up at the end of August on suspicion of working as mafia hitmen."

"The arrests were part of a huge police dragnet - the biggest law enforcement operation seen in Bulgaria since the fall of communism - launched after a wave of gangland shootouts in Sofia."

"The battles appear to have been the result of a major turf war between Bulgaria's drug gangs, keen to take advantage of a growth in heroin trafficking following the rise in opium production in Afghanistan this year."

ORIGINAL TITLE: "Officer Lashes Guns Policy As 'Disgrace' "
-------
"A senior officer has launched a savage attack on his own force's firearms policy after police took nearly an hour to arrive at a packed city centre pub where a man had opened fire with a shotgun."

"Regulars at the Prince Arthur made desperate 999 calls after a man burst into the pub on Wednesday night wielding a shotgun and terrorised customers before leaving and blasting away outside. It was 45 minutes before police arrived on the scene."

"Arthur Street residents last night begged police to act over drug-dealing in the area."

"The officer, who asked not to be named, branded the delay 'an absolute disgrace, predicting that sooner or later someone would bleed to death because of Gloucestershire Constabulary's policy."

The officer's tongue-lashing includes:
"Our firearms response is ridiculously slow - we simply do not attend quickly enough," he said. This wasn't the case here 10 years ago and it wouldn't happen in the Met.

"You have a situation where a member of the public is calling for help and, when firearms are involved, it can take two hours to attend.

"We have to have tactical weapons advice and various procedures before we are allowed to respond.

"I realise officer's safety is important but personal risk is part of the job and the safety of the public is paramount."

Anti-gun nonsense

"The idea of suing gun manufacturers for the criminal misuse of their lawfully manufactured products by third parties over whom they have no control is an obviously ridiculous misapplication of the law."

"Mr. Ehrlich [R-MD] voted in favor of H.R. 2037, which, among other things, would limit the vulnerability of firearms manufacturers to civil lawsuits."

"Maryland's Democrats and gun-control advocates denounced Mr. Ehrlich for being a conservative and for backing the 'gun industry protection act'."

"Both the car and the gun have the potential to be misused. But neither are inherently dangerous — and any unlawful use to which they are put by their owners is certainly something neither the automaker nor the gun manufacturer can control. To suggest otherwise is a distortion of cause and effect, which would open the door to potentially limitless lawsuits affecting just about any consumer good one could think of."
