Facing a steam train, with a potato gun?

Maybe some people shouldn't be allowed to have children, should passing on such a diluted Intelligence Quotion be unlawful in society?

'You can't do owt, ya just a blue band.'

As he stood there taunting a young PCSO, you decided enough, was enough:

'It's not clever, it's not cool, and it certainly isn't brightening my evening.'
'Ya wot?'
'Listen very carefully chap, take your hands out of your trousers and behave, before you embarrass yourself.'
'Fuck you.'
'Excuse me?'
'I was talking to him, he can't arrest me.'
'No he can't, but I can, and I will.'

At this point his girlfriend came across:

'Leave it Darren, it isn't worth it.'
'Can you take charge of him and make him behave himself, because if he doesn't, i'm going to have to lock him up and that won't do anyone any good.'
'I'll do my best.'

She turned to her boyfriend and stated in a clear and somewhat audible tone:

'Stop being a prick and go home. I'll -- call -- you -- in -- the -- morning.'

As you stood there watching, you expected her to end up flat on her back with a black eye, but instead he walked away, with his tail between his legs. You and your partner got back in the car, ready to make your way to the next emergency call.

The rest of the night didn't go so well, three in the can for Section 5, one for Drunk and Disorderly, one for Assault on Police and another for ABH.

Sitting in front of the computer, the clock ticked over to 2.20 am, you looked at the numbers, covering a population of over one hundred thousand, six Police Officers were on duty. You walked out the door of the police station, hoping that you wouldn't get attacked on the way home, because you knew that if you called the Police, they wouldn't be able to help.

However, even when they are faced with almost impossible odds, police officers up and down the country still do their best, they go where you still fear to tread.

'The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.'

Douglas Adams.
