A serious question

#1
Can you be arrested for telling someone to "fuck off"? Any Rozzers know the answer?

I don't mean on here, I mean in the street.

Would it be up to a judge and jury to decide if the person you told to "fuck off" deserved the advice administered or is telling someone to "fuck off" an immediate offence with lots of paperwork?

I say this because I told an old woman to "fuck off" today and she threatened to report me to the RSPCA, which was a bit odd, imho.

It's a grey area.

I don't tell everybody I meet to "fuck off", just the ones who deserve it. But my notion of 'deserving' may be at odds with society's.

Fuck off.
 
#3
Did she catch you slipping her Scotty a crippler?
 
#4
But does it make a difference if you tell me to fuck off in a mildly comical way, or if you have real menace in your voice as you lean over my pram and shout "fuck off" with an angry voice?
 
#5
oh fuck off

(Well it is the NAAFI)

No idea mate guess it depends on what mood the police are in, circumstances, was it said in a threatening manner all sorts of variables

I think technically its GBH, but the level of harm is how she reacted, if she fainted in shock at your outburst you would get bounced hard, if she told you to fuck off as a reply, you'ld be labelled as bad as each other.

Well it was more threatening to the old bag I told to "fuck off" than to me. But that's my point. Could I have been nicked for verbal assault or for saying "fuck off" in a threatening manner?

If it's down to the mood of Plod on the day, I think there's an issue here, to be frank.

I have no idea. But how can you tell an old bag to "fuck off" without being in the eye of Mr Plod 'threatening' for doing so? GBH? Jesus!! All these variables are a load of bollocks, imho. If it's against the law to tell someone to "fuck off", then so be it. I put my hands up to that, but if it's a matter for debate, then there's summat wrong.
 
#11
Yes. It's called 'abusive or threatening language" and one of my soldiers got smashed with it last year.
That's me fucked then.

Have you ever been to Tesco Catterick?
 
#12
According to my mate (in no way treat this as true he's a PCSO) No.
Telling someone to fuck off is not something a copper would arrest you for, however is classed as anti social behaviour.
In cases where threats of violence are involved you may well be arrested and taken away for a good bumming.

Without a doubt there will be a monkey along any minute to tell us we're all cunts and talking shit then arrest us all for swearing.
Or pandaplopper will turn up and bore seven different colours of shit out of us.
 
#13
It's that sense of understanding when someone deserves to be told to "fuck off", whether they're pulling a knife on you or just wearing a really shitty tie.

Wasn't there a recent ruling/case in HM Courts where M'Learned Judge said that it is OK to tell the filth to fuck off and the aforementioned filth should be prepared to accept the fuck off as part and parcel of the job?
I recall the filth being mightily pissed off about it but they can fuck off anyway.

Ergo : If it is OK to tell the filth to fuck off then it must be OK for the rest of the population including (especially) elderly ladies.
Not sure about the RSPCA though.

Can cost you a night in the cells..(so I've been told) and Tesco s in Catterick is an experience I savour normally after visiting the market/carboot/pikey stalls at the racecourse on a Sunday..I tell all them to fuck off too!

Still don't get it. If I tell the copper who is in my house trying to kill off my plants to "fuck off", that's part of the job description and they should, simply, fuck off.

But if I tell an ignorant old bag in the street to "fuck off", I could get done for GBH.

Does it depend on how you say "fuck off"? I mean the message is in the words, but if you say it in a Downton Abbey sort of way, that makes it ok in mitigation? Or if you say it like Ray Winstone, Inspector Knacker is going to throw the book at you if he's had a bad day?

Blimey.

Telling the RSPCA to fuck off is bang out of order.......but I'm ok with the police being told to fuck off.

And old ladies obvioulsy.......fucking old cunts.

Only works on peelers because apparently they cannot be shocked. Although they got a little hacked off at being described as 'Black Enamel Bastards'. All depends on the manner and the audience, a muttered passing Fuck Away Off would be difficult to pin but a full blown one may be different story.
It's all to do with the circumstances and the method of delivery.

In my case it was a little old lady and her chum and the method of delivery was a very loud "Fuck Off!" after they'd annoyed me. No menace. I kept the AMD-65 in the car.

But just saying "fuck off" is threatening enough.

It's one of those "crimes" that depends on the audience, I suspect. If I had told, say, a Bootie to "fuck off" he would have kicked me in the hoop and got on with his job.

But if I tell an old lady to "fuck off", I could be charged with GBH?

What a pile of shite.

Yes there was. Although our radio audience might be well advised not to tell the filth to fuck off because you can still be nicked for it,

Now, if you will excuse me I shall reflect upon the matter and come back to you soon. I note snail has posted and I love snail very much. havocthecat has also posted and I need to do him up the fucking arsehole with a broken Grolsch bottle since those Spesh Plod cunts said he was more funny than me.
