Sinn Fein councillor Angela Nelson told the Andersonstown News that the officer's actions "beggared belief".

"The PSNI are put on the streets to do a serious job and that is to keep order on the streets and face down anti-social elements. This is like a sick joke.

"It goes against everything we are trying to solve and eradicate in the area."

You just can't please some people can you, She would be quick enough to bleat if the story went along the lines of...

Coppers stopped the vehicle, threw a couple of hairy land sharks out the back at the youf, then drawing their sidearms started chuking rounds dowrange at the kids as they legged it down the road...

Top marks, wonder if the copper involved is ex-army. Love the comment from the SF councillor, would be nice if just once they could condem the scrotes throwing bottles.

He managed to defuse the situation without it escalating, I can see the senior officers concern with maintaining a more serious image, but it's still good use of initiative.

And what would the SF councillor prefer him to do? Kneecap prior to taring and feathering?

Said police officer eradicated that particular episode didn't he? Sinn Fein? Fcuking jokers. They haven't changed. :x

Good grief, the man contained the situation; no one was hurt and yet he is being censured. It is hardly surprising that some Police become disillusioned

Sick joke? A sick joke is: My son will soon be getting to that age where he acts like my cat. He'll start bringing birds home in such poor condition I'll have to take them into the backyard and kill them with a brick. This story is not a sick joke.

Full marks to the copper for defusing the situation non violently, and 0/10 for balls to his bosses for not sticking up for him. The SF councillor once more confirmed my view of that organisation. Does a couple verses of "just one cornetto" constitute a "cruel and unusual punishment" now? What planet are these people from?

Most of the locals found it hilarious,and are still laughing about it.They are very pleased to see these scrots sent on their way with no violence being used by either side. They are also laughing at the police making fools out of the little scrots.Things have changed a little bit in Twinbrook from the "bad old days",a lot now own thier own homes,have decent cars(taxed)and believe it or not have jobs,and don't want this antisocial behavior anymore.As for the Shinners,the young scrots have no fear of them,don't listen or respect them,or anyone else for that matter.Recently,it was the public,not the Shinners who demanded and forced the police to u-turn on withdrawal of it's special vehicle crime unit.As for the police,they're not the R.U.C. anymore.The guy deserves a big pat on the back.

Heard this y'day on Radio 4. I think its brilliant. So many things have been tried and failed - he tried and succeeded. Humour broke down the tension. Would prob never work again and was not an SOP so is weird and bad - so he'll get punished probably.
would have loved to have seen it
surprised its not on youtube yet :D

SF really do need to take their heads out their arrses, they never could take a joke, I had that Gerry Adams in my PVCP once, the platoon comedian had his driver in stitches with his jokes, poor Gerry couldn't handle it and just gripped the dash board and stared straight ahead, must have thought it was a Brit trick :)
