Policemen

Recommended Posts

I am sure there might be some good policemen out there, but there sure are alot of wasters from what I see. Example is on Friday night, I arrive at Victoria station quite late at night, the gates to teh station are shut and there are two policemen outside (well one real one, one PCSO). True to form, they were chatting up a couple of drunk girls, which they seem to make quite a habit of. Anyway, since they appeared to be standing guard I politely enquired what time the gates were opening in case the station had been shut for some kind of security alert. They replied that they did not know as the sattion was nothing to do with them. This was not very helpful, so I just asked them what they were doing there then, to which they replied that they were just passing through, they then continued to chat up the girls ina cringworthy fashion.

Anyway, they eventually leave, and arrive back 10 minutes later, holding a different girls hand (I think she was a local prostitute from the way she was dressed). The three of them were let in to the station which was still closed, and someone joked that you had to be wearing pink to get in the station. To this the policeman turned around and aggressively told the person that said it to shut their face as they had no idea what the young lady had just been through. Everyone who was stood their was really shocked by the aggression of the guy. If the a polieman loses his rag over such an innocent comment on a friday night, then how can they be trusted to stay calm and rational in a genuinly stressfull situation? I I was the young lady concerned, I dont think I would have appreciated another aggressive man shouting if I had just been through some kid of ordeal, so it seems the only person that this rant benefited was this guys ego.

I'm sorry, but this is the lamest excuse for having a go at Bobbies that I've heard in a long time.

You see I was standing on duty outside Victoria station late on Friday night, holding the hand of a young PCSO who wasn't really experienced. I'd been called there late, and no-one told us why the station was closed or why we had to be there, so we had to fend off all the enquiries from commuters, most of whom were polite, but after a while it got a bit wearing. As we stood there, we got the usual p*ssed-up girls from hen parties coming along and trying to chat us up, which they seem to make a habit of, but we played along just to stop them screeching.

Anyway, we get a call for a sexual assault a few streets away and find a young girl lying in a gutter. I'm not really sure what to do, as she's crying and might be injured, but the PCSO reminds us that there is a liaison room at the station. When we get back to the station 10 minutes later, with the girl feeling even more distressed, some pr*ck shouts out that you need to be wearing pink to get into the station. Obviously I give the twonk a bit of verbal, and escort the young lady inside.

Plausible, but thats not how it looked from where I was standing. I saw real aggression, and everyone stood around was really shocked by it aswell.

I never said it was the worst thing in the world, it was just an example of poor behaviour which, if it were the other way round could quite easily get you arrested.

Had a bit of luck Friday night outside Victoria Station. I'd had fifteen pints and a vindaloo, and was absolutely busting for a crap. No toilets open, and two coppers eyeing me up as a potential trouble maker. I thought to myself 'God, not another Friday night with me strides full!'

Then there's a girl appears, and some clown starts shouting something about 'pink'. The coppers get the hump with him, and while the ruck's kicking off, I manage to drop my trousers and lay a ten-inch richard in a doorway.

I'm away with a spring in my steps and four pounds lighter!

Result!

Why was it poor behaviour? You asked them a question, they answered you, but because it wasn't the answer you wanted, you started sucking your thumb, and then started sticking your nose in.

great inconsequential anecdote, totally unburdened with anything resembling a point or any thought provoking content; nice work.........

there really isn't a shortage of things going on in the world to get pissed off about at the moment, not sure this even registers on my windupometer

eh? Stuck my nose in? How. I asked them about the gates to the station, they claimed to know nothing about it and carried on chatting up the girls. This was not surprising as this seems to be the done thing for coppers. Then ten minutes later, they were really agressive with someone else whilst I happened to be standing witness waiting for the station to open.

My God you poor fluffy bunny.

In a decent liberal society such fascist scum would be made to go do sensitivity training. How dare they get fed up with umpteen drunkards on a Friday night pestering over trivia laced with sarcasm while they try and deal with assaults and other crimes.

Sounds like sticking your nose in to me.

So he shouted then?

By all means have a rant at them when it takes them 3 days to come around after you've reported a mugging or burglary, but not because they shouted at someone (whilst dealing with what sounds like a distressed women) and couldn't tell you when the gates open.

get real

the Police are a PUBLIC SERVICE

they're not paid to be lippy and swear at you

I'll even link you to another site where some of the cops will admit to their colleagues being overly aggressive.

some of them do adopt an attitude as soon as they get a uniform on and think they can do what they please.

1 guy i used to wrk with left the Police Cadets left because he wasnt comfortable with his mentor going round thumping folk as part of his community policing

They weren't dealing with crimes for the most part, they were chatting up girls.

I don't think anyone is disputing any of the above.

Edit: Well the last 3 paragraphs anyway.

"Drunk girls on a night out fancy men in uniform shocker !!"

Get over it, the police are the law, they can generally do as they please and they know this. It's the same with anyone in a position of authority, they can either be a complete c0ck and abuse it or can actually be decent public servants.

There is a procedure to follow if you're unhappy with the behaviour of any public servant and it is the complaints procedure, use it instead of venting your spleen on an anonymous internet forum

So tell me this, your in Uniform waiting outside a station with a colleague. A few bumpkins come up to you asking for travel information you don't have, so you tell them, then a couple of girls come up to you and start acting flirty.

do you

a ) flirt back to pass the time until your called to a job or the station opens

b ) punch them in the face for daring to talk to you

Your clearly a rather sensitive man who needs to get over this one.

Agreed.

Me thinks the OP has had an easy life if this gets their goat, but still, some people are lucky like that I suppose. <_<

I wouldn't say I'd had hard life. If it was that much of a big deal, I would not have raised in the ot section of an anonymous forum. For me it was just another example of bad police behaviour that others may or may not want to discuss, but rather take my word for it with regards the ott aggression and reaction of the general public, some would rather make up their own version and use that to make judgements.

It's just the story sounds a little fluffy and sensitive. If you had made a sweeping statement such as 'most coppers think they're something special, uniform goes right to their heads. They should remember who pays their wages blah blah blah' I probably would have agreed with you !

I was driving through Ipswich when a PCSO on a mountain bike pulled up alongside and tapped on my window.When I lowered it he claimed I had gone over an amber light.I looked at him and said "Shouldn't you be picking up litter?" and drove off.

Worzel, I do not know why so many posters are laying into you, your post appears acceptable enough to me. They were not there to see and feel the mood and tone of the situation, they are guessing at it. I fear the posters will give you more of a good kicking than the police could or would!

I have a cousin who joined the Surrey police, he did his training and worked in Reigate. To those than know Reigate it is both affluent and quite pleasant with no great history of any trouble at all. He was asked to leave the police because of his dislike of the police causing problems where there had been none. I think he said "lack of moral fibre". He gave me a typical example of the way things were. He was instructed to cross the high street with another copper and engage in winding people up leaving the pub, he told me one of the coppers was know to be able to wind anyone up to the point of being able to arrest them which happened on many occasions. He also told me he had never failed to get stuck in to any event he attended including the good old fashion pub fight on the very rare occasion there was one. He did indeed leave and to this day is bitter at his treatment and the treatment of the public that he was there to serve!

To any policeman /policewoman / police horse and especially police dog reading this, my name is not Tim Miller and I did not live in Surrey, I swear it! I waz no where near Surrey, I don nuffink wrong.
