  1. Video of the incident: Looks to me that he was trying to clear a path for the removal of the arrested woman. What are you supposed to do to remove people obstructing you? Are you supposed to take the extra risk to yourself and to them by going hands on? Is there not an argument for the preference of using CS because it's effective without leaving any injuries to the person?
  2. He'd be getting away with openly treating the police with contempt and wasting police time. If he didn't call him an idiot and just said "Oh right, anything else I can help you with?" you can be guaranteed it would have made it to YouTube to show how the police are a push over. Flagging down police vehicles to ask sarcastic questions is idiotic. He's an idiot. I don't go around calling everyone an idiot but in that case he earned it. I don't see what's wrong with police officers being human and telling people in language they understand that their behaviour is unacceptable.
  3. To me that's just letting him get away with it and allowing yourself to be walked on. I'm not happy to be made a laughing stock of and I'd rather confront snide derogatory behaviour with a firmer response.
  4. Yea but that's not answering the question. What would YOU do and say?
  5. For everyone who said the officer in the second video was wrong in calling the fella an idiot, what would you have done and said in the same scenario? The guy has flagged the officer down in difficult traffic conditions. If it was me I would be expecting him to be trying to report a priority incident. Then to finally find a safe place to pull in and be met with petty and trivial questions with no other purpose than to annoy and goad the officer what should he have said? "Oh, you're just trying to annoy me? Sorry, I thought you were trying to stop me to report something urgent. I'm an idiot. Well bye then." What's the correct response?
  6. She reminds me so much of a female version of David Brent from the office.
  7. Is there a reason why all the special's radio holders are blue compared to the regulars black ones?
  8. What annoyed me the most was the officer in the second video at the traffic collision. It pains me to see people wearing a kit belt around their stomach rather than around their waist. That and the radio static which doesn't exist anymore.
  9. Is this how you're meant to take it?
  10. That's what I would call a chin strap.
  11. Can someone explain to me why you would alter your hat like this: How could anyone say that the officer on the left in either photo looks as professional as the one on the right? Also, why do so many tuck the chin strap behind the force crest?
  12. I don't think we have anything to be worried about.
  13. Video is better: And that is the only way to badge out.
  14. EMP

    What about this retractable stinger strip fitted to the front of a patrol car:
