Or Rauls rose garden in Belize, when 3members of 2 Para were kickinf the shit out of a poor AAC guy, the AAC guy was very happy to see the whole of the RMP Det including the CSM, who were returning froma job in downtown Belize.
Yeah, how many times do you hear the Unit hardman 'Oh, i fucking hate monkeys, i do, don't want nothing to do with them, they're all bastards, etc etc etc'
The week passes into weekend, said hard man finds himself drunk and bleeding in a German Police cell sleeping off a hangover and a baton induced headache and suddenly when we tip up you'd think we're his f**king best mates.
And on a serious note, the GPD guys are banned from using blues and twos, but if it was your missus frighten and alone in the house with some perv kicking around your back garden you'd soon kick off if they took their time getting there. Think about it, if the lads want to drive like tw*ts they'll f**k off up the range roads and play colin Mcrae like everyone else. When the blues come on it's for YOUR benefit and some guys put the safety of our 'clients' before some ridiculous policy note. They take the risk because they couldn't live with themselves if they knowingly dragged their feet and something terrible happened.
I for one think they SHOULD stop doing it. A few serious incidents tardily attended by them following the letter of policy and the Corps might start loading people on badly needed response drivers courses.
