Peace in all time......

As you knelt down, your hands and uniform covered in blood, you looked at the man you were attempting to stop bleeding to death, he was surprisingly calm, but the crowd weren't, they were shouting at you, calling you a 'CUNT' and a 'BASTARD'. Your colleague was trying to hold them back, whilst calling for assistance on the radio, he turned around and you could see the look on his face. You've worked with this guy for many years, and you know that 'look', it meant people were coming as fast as they could, but that it would feel like a life time until they arrived.

You are a normal young man, mile mannered, polite and respectful, with a beautiful, thoughtful girlfriend, a dog, a hamster, a nice little house with a beautiful back garden. You enjoy listening to classical music, gardening and playing Monopoly at Christmas. How could anyone be calling you a 'BASTARD' and a 'CUNT'?

'It is not the concern of any one race. The victims of the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown. They are, most important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved and needed. No one - no matter where he lives or what he does - can be certain who will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed.'

Senator Robert Kennedy.

The answer is simple, when a person puts on a uniform, be they a serviceman, a police officer, a traffic warden, a service policeman, a PCSO, a paramedic or a fire fighter, they become THAT uniform. 

'She had an infectious personality and sense of humour and was a very caring and loving girl. When she left the house she was 
going to the job she loved.'

What makes you angry, is that someone can be so EVIL as to pull a trigger without a thought for the fact they are not just attacking a uniform, but a PERSON wearing that uniform.

'A calm, gentle woman, planning her wedding. She had a great sense of humour and always put people at ease.'

They are attacking a person with HOPES and DREAMS, plans for the FUTURE. They are attacking someone's wife, daughter, son, father, brother, sister, not just a UNIFORM. 

PC Nicola Hughes, just 23 years old, PC Fiona Bone, soon to marry her partner, woke up on the 17th of September 2012, and to put it bluntly and tragically, ended up being killed in a cul-de-sac on an estate in Manchester, not because of who they WERE but because of what they were WEARING. 

What that individual did, when they pulled the trigger, was EVIL, pure EVIL.

'I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, and the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and build a better life for their children. Not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women, not merely peace in our time, but peace in all time.....Our problems are man-made. Therefore, they can be solved by man.'
President JF Kennedy.

Utter rubbish, nobody hates the fire service or ambulance crews. I have yet to see one of these deprive an innocent person of their liberty. As for the police, they are rightly held in contempt by all decent folks.

I have been present when paramedics have been attacked by people they are trying to treat and others at the scene, and I have been to incidents where people were throwing bricks at a fire engines.

Thanks for your comment.

Anyone throwing anything at Fire engines is scum. Only eception is if they are relaying our positions to plod (Brixton 81 and 85, they soon learned not to). Ambulances? I used to hold in equal high regard til I saw more than one "MOP" roughed up by half a dozen plod who then handed over the poor **** to ambulance crew for transfer to hospital.
