Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by No.9, Dec 23, 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. Apparently during a twitter organised snowball fight at a crossroads in Washington DC, a detective responded to being hit by a snowball by drawing his gun. When asked why he said; "cos I got hit by a snowball" [​IMG]

  2. A mate of mine was there. Apparently someone threw a snowball at the cozzer's Hummer. Talk about making a c0ck out of yourself. Although since it was a hummer you can basically presume that the driver is going to be a throbber.
     
  3. And the crowd chanting
    "You don't bring a gun to a snowball fight" !
     
  4. It wasn't A snowball, didn't he get bombarded with a couple? In his Hummer.

    Then he got out and waved his gun at the ground.

    Typical yank... brings a gun to a snowball fight.
     
  5. It would have been funny if he shot someone because they had thrown a snowball, but waving his gun around....pussy!
     
  6. Nothing in these rules of engagement limits your right to take
    appropriate action to defend yourself and your unit.

    1. You have the right to use force to defend yourself against attacks
    or threats of attack.
    2. Hostile fire may be returned effectively and promptly to stop a
    hostile act.
    3. When US forces are attacked by unarmed hostile elements, mobs,
    and/or rioters, US forces should use the minimum force necessary under
    the circumstances and proportional to the threat.
    4. You may not seize the property of others to accomplish your
    mission.
    5. Detention of civilians is authorized for security reasons or in
    self-defense.

    Remember:
    The United States is not at war.
    Treat all persons with dignity and respect.
    Use minimum force to carry out the mission.
    Always be prepared to act in self-defense."
     

  7. No 6 covers it then!
     
  8. organising a snowball fight in the middle of a crossroads not the smartest of things don't the spams have parks for this sort of thing.
     
  9. 'Smartest' and 'spams' not normally two words you see in the same sentence.
     
  10. Didn't a facebook organised water fight in UK end up with some knobs knifing each other?
     
  11. It's D.C. their Po-lice have had serious issues since the 1980's when standards were very considerably lowered to induce more minority representation.

    At least one serving Officer was arrested when it was found out he was wanted for Murder prior to joining the force. Dozens of others were found to have criminal records, outstanding warrants, gang affiliations, or were suspects in ongoing investigations when they joined the police department.

    Wouldnt be surprised one bit if Mr. Hummer Detective was in the year group when standards were abysmal.
