Bent Coppers

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by GeneralMayhem, Mar 11, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. More than 1,000 serving police officers in Britain have criminal convictions, according to figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

    Now being somewhat of a cynic I wonder how many of those convicted some for fairly serious offences are practicing members of this association in their spare time ?

    Yes chaps I know but it's the NAAFI
     
  2. Only 1,000? That's not very many at all, especially in a collective the size of the UK police forces. How many tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of coppers do we have?
    I bet the percentage isn't high. Let's face it, most Bobbies lose their job if they're convicted of anything remotely serious, so the 1,000 convictions will be very minor ones. Usually, anything that calls integrity into question, and it's bye bye job. (Rightly so).

    Bit of a non story.
     
  3. I thought this thread was going to be about gay uniformed porn.

    Ahh well, back to waiting.
     

  4. So you think some of them engrave headstones :?
     
  5. At first glance I thought you had said back to walting :wink:
     
  6. That Paddick fellas an out & out raging fudgepacker.
     
  7. I did, I took Goose Green all on my own don't you know?
     
  8. Death to fudgepackers (not the one's who actually work in the confectionary fudge packing industry of course), weasles, small nondescript insects, overweight women with screaming kids innna pram, Bus drivers and ZANU Labour.
     
  9. Of course coppers are bent! I learned that when I was about 13 when me and my mates had been collecting fireworks for weeks and had them stashed for bonfire night. We got caught with all the goodies etc stashed in our pockets and jackets on the big night! took the lot of us and told us to fcuk off home.

    couple hours later when we were mooching about we seen all our rockets and stuff get set off out the back of the copshop! cnuts!!
     
  10. RIGRAT, you are absolutely correct. I mean what they should have done was call in an ATO to dismantle the said fireworks. There is no way setting them off in the back of the nick was a proportionate way to dispose of them safely.
     
  11. Indeed. I remember a few months after one of the lads had robbed a smoke grenade from somewhere because he was in the cadets or something similar. We were all very curious as to what it would be like so went a trek up to the top fields as far away as we could get from prying eyes. 'popped' it and watched amazed as loads of yellow smoke pumped out of it.

    only problem was, the wind blew it onto the A69 and the cops had to close the road for ages as all the smoke was stuck in a cutting! they even had the police helicopter out! one of the lads thought it was to blow the smoke away! I think it was probably looking for us.

    obviously I wasnt there and took no part in it and i never went back up the fields again for ages.

    I believe the convictions include ABh, burglary, indecent assault, drugs offences and drink driving, so of course, nothing remotely serious.

    As for numbers, not as many as you may think. The Met run to about 10,000 but a lot of forces run at around 1200-1600.
