Croydon shooting

I doesn't look like things have gone the way he expected... :)

They won't let him forget it...

I love it when karma steps in...
I had/have no idea who he is so googled him. Instead I found this post from 2016 of him having a dig at Owen Jones about something Owen had written. The irony.

I see, so if you were on gate duty and stopped someone and found ammunition on him, you’d assume no gun?

there is enough issue with people shooting each other in London to have a specialist Police unit.
Ammunition should have been a red flag.
You clearly have some insight into what the officers should have done, within the constraints of the law, beyond arresting him and taking him to a facility where a more thorough search could be conducted? Please share it. Or shut up. Either is fine.
 
One was in London, my mate was killed near Tebay on the M6.
Maybe a good day to go home to the infamous BWB for a purr session and hopefully no drawing of blood.:oops:

And the fact that Labour had already stopped it in secondary schools....
They were still dishing it out in primary schools into the '80s at least. I remember it well from my own schooldays - horrid, tepid stuff that had half-curdled by the time they dished it out at morning break, having been left outside from when the milkman had dropped it off on his round. Not refrigerated at all. Ugh!! Wish they'd got rid of it before I started school in '77!!!

Probably why I can't stand the stuff even to this day.

Read it again it’s a very qualified apology, “ some forces have banned and anti blm protestors have adopted here and in the US”

Lies, half truth and equivocation. I don’t think any forces have banned the thin blue line patches, there have been some rumblings about wearing non uniform markings on uniform, but thin blue line patches banned, I would like to see some evidence of that.
The anti blm protestors, I think is the stories in the last couple of weeks of cops policing demonstrations here and in Australia, being photographed by activists with the thin blue line and being accused of wearing right wing insignia. Incorrect assertions cannot then be used to evidence the accuracy of the incorrect assertion.

For the avoidance of any doubt, police officers and the wider police family, as well as the emergency services and their wider familes use thin line coloured insignia, blue, green, red depending on service, and as I have learned today also yellow depending on service.

Showing it is a symbol of rememberance and solidarity with the fallen who have given their all in public service. That’s what it was created for, that is what it continues to do.

If Owen had ever done a real job serving the public in any capacity he would certainly know that.

The qualified apology I am sorry to say is worthy only of an immature Child trying to wriggle out of responsibility for their actions


For info, the only thin blue lines I know to have been banned were those worn by security guards in hospitals in central Bristol.

A member or members of the public complained to the trust........but only about the thin blue line patches, not the myriad of other non uniform badges worn by trust staff.

The BRI? The security blokes there I spoke to looked like the stereotypical copper - 6 foot+, well built and polite but hard looking.

There was something slightly odd seeing a shaved gorilla pushing some little old biddy down a corridor in a wheelchair when he could have carried her with one hand.

The whole trust as far as I remember, so BRI, but also:
Childrens hospital
St Micheals
Weston General
Eye hospital
Dental hospital.

I hated it too. Stopping school milk made me a lifelong Conservative, hooray for Maggie!

Unless I have missed a reply, as far as I know the details of the ammunition or handgun the suspect was carrying have not been released.

So we don’t know if the ammunition was compatible with the handgun he was carrying or not.

This means we can’t speculate as to whether the ammo was for his gun, or whether he was carrying the ammo in a courier capacity.
 
was one of them that lad on the bridge, protecting others ?
My Aunt used to live nearby
I think you may mean PC Bill Barker, he was the Roads Policing Officer who was swept to death when the bridge he was stood on in Workington was washed away in flash floods in 2009.
