Can any Arrse members, who are serving rozzers, tell me whether a sense of humour or anything approaching common sense is forbidden within the ranks of the Metropolitan Police? Or is being a miserable, self-serving cnut a prerequisite qualification before you can get into Hendon Yesterday, a mate, who's co-workers had placed a huge, black, rubber dildo at the top of the windscreen on his van for a laugh, was stopped by a police patrol car and told to remove it. He refused asking what he was doing wrong. The plod told him that he found it offensive and that he may well be offending other members of the public. When matey replied that you can see the same huge, black, rubber dildos openly on sale in the windows at any Ann Summers shop and he hadn't heard of many of them being raided lately, Plod becomes agitated. Matey then starts up the engine and tells Plod that it was nice to talk to him but he really had better things to do. Plod then tells matey to turn off the engine, that he was being arrested for a Breach of the Peace, and reads him his rights. Result? A whole day off work while matey is fingerprinted, DNA-tested and shoved in a police cell. He is also facing a possible criminal record. What exactly has the miserable plod cnut achieved? Is London a safer place?
