Armed Robbers 0 Kent Police 1

One out of four isn't too bad.

Sorry, that's all the sympathy I could muster.

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'"

Local news reports he was shot by the Flying Squad. If memory serves me correctly most, if not all, are firearms trained.
 
#8
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 don´t really care who slotted the scrote,it´s one mouth less to feed and a good reminder to the rest of them that crime doesn´t always pay........................unless they only get wounded of course,then it´s like winning the pools! :evil:

reminds me of the Gibraltar Shooting enquiry

Judge - 'Soldier A, why did you shoot the subject 26 times?'

Soldier A - ' cos I ran out of ammunition M'Lud!'

There is no mention as to who shot him?. Was it CO19 or Kent's own Armed Response.
I should imagine it was Kent Police as it is their patch and their Chief Constable would be ultimately responsible for any operations in his County.

From the ITV news now showing, it sounds like it was part of the “Stockwell Waxing Team.”

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.

Not a big fan of the police, but if you brandish a firearm in public (immitation or not), then your rights just hit the bin. Only problem now will be the do gooding hand wringing about to follow.

Getting a reputation for not missing the target then?

If I thought Sir Ian had the huevos, I might suspect this guy was especially chosen just to show his colleagues the way things run. Good for morale. Bad for baddy.
