    ... in Culcheth, a Cheshire Police beat.

    BBC News - Man shot dead by police in Culcheth, Cheshire

    A number of things stood out from the report:-

    Perps apparently seen wearing gas masks as well as carrying firearms,
    GMP carrying out a "planned operation" on Cheshire Police soil,
    No mention or even speculation as to the identity of the perps or the reason for the shoot/arrest,
    No mention of the arrested "helping police with their enquiries" or where or who they are being questioned by,

    Suggests to me a terrorism related incident.
  2. Shoot one and arrest two.

    Sounds like a good policy to me.

  4. Why didn't they shoot all three!:highfive:

    Saves a lot of paperwork later on.

    That'll teach the guilty bastards!:excited:

    So a Police shooting with a few reported details that scream "IRREGULAR AND DANGEROUS" is now not news if it happens in the North West and so gets confined to a dank, dark sub-forum that hardly anyone reads? Since when were we getting BBC editors acting as MODS???
  6. Who's screaming? Other than you and your caps lock?

    Life isn't one big hysterical conspiracy you know. Get off your high horse, you plum. And no, it wasn't me who moved the original before you start gobbing off.
  8. According to Yahoo News, it was connected to an undercover investigation into a gang who had allegedly carried out armed robberies.
  9. First aid eh?

    Remove gas mask filter and hold hand over hole.

    In this specific case trigger, Culcheth happens to be a sleepy little villiage where an car theft or burglary is news. Gas masks, tooled-up coppers, and non-local police services slotting people is akin to Somali drug dealers in London ditching the blades and opting for ex-Soviet T-72s as a weapon of choice instead...
  13. Jesus! You want to keep of the caffeine!

    News just in. Crime takes place outside of a city!

    "You do know that there are more guns in the country than there are in the city?"

    "everyone and their mums is packing around here"

    "like who?"


    "farmers mums"
