Lawyer - "Can you describe what challenge you issued"
Gun Plod - "I shouted 'Armed Police - drop your weapon now, or I will fire' three times, the deceased continued to act in an aggresive manner and I had no alternative but to fire three rounds into the centre of his visible mass"
Lawyer - "Mrs Smith what did you hear"
Mrs Smith - "The only thing I heard was three bangs and "Goodnight you beauty" that was it'"
Long time since I had opportunity to work with the Squad. I doubt that they would have had a lot of support if anyone suggested that a Home & Colonial force provided the armed back up.
Anyway, that ex-Squad gut who always gets dragged in on death by police cases will be on TV tonight.
I donÂ´t really care who slotted the scrote,itÂ´s one mouth less to feed and a good reminder to the rest of them that crime doesnÂ´t always pay........................unless they only get wounded of course,then itÂ´s like winning the pools!
Agreed. If they told him in time "We've just come onto your patch in accordance with hot pursuit rules. Situation is..... and we are going in now. Have a nice day" I was about when the NSY corruption investigation was on and the regional forces used were christened The Sweedy to differentiate them from the Sweeny. I should imagine - and hope - the Sweedy bit sticks.
