Quote from: Michael Rolls on September 02, 2022, 10:02:15 PMbrother of a works colleague (this is 50+ years ago) was a bobby. His first patrols were with an experienced fellow officer. Two tales I remember Mick's (my colleague) brother and the experienced man walked past a cul-de-sac and saw a fight going on between half a dozen blokes. Mick's brother was all for charging in, but his mentor said 'No, lad, we'll walk around the block a little, then we'll sort it out' By the time they returned the fight was just about over and they arrested all the weary, battered, tired out participants without any problem or injuries to themselves. The other occasion - the same two officers found a would be burglar trying to break into a shop. Rather than arrest and have to cope with the paper work, the mentor picked the scrote up by the scruff of his neck and threw him over a five foot wall - then he threw his 250 cc motor bike after him.Mike
Quote from: Sheila on September 03, 2022, 07:36:39 AMDid anyone else hear on the news about a man who tried to report to the police that his car had been stolen but the police weren't interested. However the thief did some fly tipping, including stuff from the car which identified the man. The police came round to the poor man's house to accuse him of fly tipping!
