The Ugly Brits

Postby ksl » Tue, 03 Jun 2008 3:16 am

Not at all surprised, the police didn't make it, because it's more important, to avoid any dangers, or shoot first, sorry guys, we are not paid to protect the public. :oops: disgraceful! Also 15 year old girl stabbed to death in a lift, and a couple of other murders on the bbc web.

For football fans, Gazza is sanctioned for mental deficiency or genetic malfunction, he's been asked to sign up for the local nut house team, smiling away like a Cheshire cat, he said," Eee I told ya, a could still play lad" No offence Gazza, been there, done that! Poor lad he need's to wake up from that hell, he's in!

Nothing to do with police inefficiency or neglect of duty, the individuals concerned knew each other. Therefore the event like many others occurred on the spur of the moment. Nothing the police can do about that.:roll:

I read the last time Gazza was sectioned he had ordered a steak dinner to his hotel room and called 10 minutes later and cancelled the steak but asked him to bring the knife. When the cops kicked down the door after being called by the staff they found him trying to drown himself in the bath.

Poor bugger.

I just love Police blunders :lol: I agree not the polices fault the girl was stabbed in the lift...she was 15 he was 30, maybe it was one of those internet chat room lunatics. It's the whole mentality of guys going around with knives...that beats me...It will never stop, as long as the punishment of prison is so inviting!

The clock needs turning back to the days, when they were put on display in the local market, with a public caning.

Look at this police blunder, 20k of damage and the police don't prosecute because of a lack of evidence. :roll:

Again it is not the police that are at fault, moreover our 'cock-eyed' legal system. Had they taken the issue to court that is just the kind of defence a lawyer would have used: 'what evidence do you have.' The defence would then claim the accident could have been the result of some evasive action taken by the driver. Maybe the abominable snowman still lives in Wales? :P

By the way, this murder of the 15 year old girl, it turns out the police had been informed in April, about a nutter, harrassing her, he was 30 year old! So looks like they just didn't care once again or didn't take it serious ! :P Could it be that she was black?

Yes but as it says in the article regarding a threat to kill her: 'when police spoke to her about the incident she was unaware of.' In any case they cannot be with her 24 hours a days every day, the nutter may have turned up unexpectedly. I doubt if race is an issue here.

They are British - What do you expect???

If they were English, Welsh, Scottish or Irish I would be disappointed.
