Don’t arm the police

Re: Arming the Police force 

As a Samoan living overseas, arming the police is not going to help keep the peace but create more problems or even kill innocent people. 

Where are the high chiefs, village council and the parents of these trouble kids, they should be ashamed of themselves. 

New Zealand don't even arm their police and Samoa is a tiny little country that police don't really need to be armed with guns. 

The way I look at it is the lack of responsibilities from parents and the Village Councils. 

Please don't make overseas front pages of their newspaper for all the wrong reason. 

"You can do better than that Samoa" please matai, churches and parents as well as the government, don't arm your police or you will end up killing each other.
