Re: are'nt our policemen wonderful
i'm sorry nobody said they where wrong for enforcing the law,its just the way they go about it that annoys me.
the way they hide to catch motorists,you don't see them hiding to catch muggers,burglars and rapists and other assorted ner do wells.
in the old days it was highwaymen like dick turpin that you had to look out for when going about your buisness,nowadays its your local police force you have to watch out for.
and has for the bit about its the police that have to scrape the bits up off the road i've heard it all before.they knew what the job entailed before they took it.
so why don't they show themselves more, surely that would slow motorists up.
after all the object of the exercise is to stop speed related accidents.
all they are doing by hiding is increasing revenue and turning motorists against them.
and as for that old chestnut about manpower,our beloved leader tony blair keeps informing us there are more coppers than ever on our streets,and if manpower is tight why not turn traffic coppers into beat bobbies,then everybody will be happy.
i would like to have a poll and see how many previously law abiding motorists who got nicked for speeding would help a copper if he was being attacked in the street.
i know i wouldn't,i'd just walk of laughing .
theyv'e only got themselves to blame.
personally i think captain gatso should stand for prime minister at the next election
he'd get my vote.
and has for the comments about the traffic cops going after the joyriders and other idiots,they won't find them by hiding behind railings and hedges and down side streets.
