UK rural police to be armed to combat terrorist threat
There's no way around it. Routine patrols of guys dressed in black armor carrying automatic weapons means you live in a police state.

The Dankula case shows that.
Nobody complained about his video.
The police took it upon themselves to prosecute the guy for making a video poking fun at Nazis.
When the police decide the the law, you live in a police state.

Is there any evidence that a heavily armed police force can deter terror attacks?

I guess they could shoot the guy after he’d mowed down a few hundred with his truck.
Save the trouble of a trial.

Better still, fit every truck with a bomb, monitor every truck's movements, and any truck that leaves the road (because obviously they intend to mow down pedestrians) - BOOM. Fewer terrorists, fewer immigrants, fewer casualties, fewer court cases, more winners.
