That’ll Teach ‘im!

Daniel Jansen, from Peacehaven, was surrounded by up to 40 officers including a firearms unit and dog-handlers after he and another man took to the roof of a porch in Moulsecoomb.
Yesterday he admitted a public order offence after shouting abuse at police.
And was fined a whole £73! Wow! Which, given he’s jobless, we’ll be paying.

And why is he jobless? Well…
Brighton Magistrates’ Court was told he had gone to the Colbourne Avenue home of Alex Kilby, 18, with two women after he was asked to leave a party elsewhere on Friday night because of the way he was behaving.
They drank through the night and Jansen said when he went to bed the others pulled the covers off him.
Talia Martin, defending, said: “They continually harassed and harangued him.”
A shouting match followed and one of the women called the police. When officers arrived Jansen shouted that he hadn’t done anything wrong.
He then shouted at officers out of an upstairs window, before climbing onto the roof of the porch with Mr Kilby while police gathered outside trying to talk them down.
Abuse was hurled from the roof
Police, amid a volley of insults, were informed: “You are a waste of time.”
Chris Bull, prosecuting, said a knife was seen, and Jansen was heard saying: “Grab that knife, if they try and get us just cut yourself. They can’t touch us, health and safety.”
The knife – which the court was told was three inches long – was then dropped off the roof. The siege ended at about 12.15pm.
What employer wouldn’t want such a paragon, I ask you?

And maybe I’ve watched too much ‘Game Of Thrones’ lately, but it seems to me, that’s less a siege, and more two idiots having a temper tantrum that would have embarrassed a two-year-old…
Presiding magistrate Michael Trayler told Jansen: “You created a right hoo-hah, with half the police force of Sussex outside the house.”
And, given his ‘punishment’, what is there to stop him doing it again the next time he has one too many?

The worrying part about it all is that if they haven't already done so, morons like this are free to breed ..

FORTY OFFICERS? A 5 hour 'siege'? WTF for? Why didn't they park a panda up and leave the fuckwit up on the roof until he wanted his brekkie or drugs? Stragnge that the magistrate mentions ' half the police force of Sussex outside the house' but failed to question WHY!

No doubt other 'service users' phoning 999 were told that there was no-one to attend due to a 'critical incident'. I give up!

Shoot 'em down or leave 'em there.

Disperse the crowd so depriving them of attention. Not seeing the problem.

There's never an electricity sub-station about when you need one.

"Shoot 'em down or leave 'em there" ..

It was only the porch of a house, they could probably have shoved the daft bugger off with a sweeping brush .. ;)

This is what our overprotective but blamealot cluture has brought us.

Scummies who can use the word 'and' in a sentence. Innit?

What did prove to be a complete waste of time was the dithering decision to deploy only half the police force of Sussex. Well done, dough...erm chaps.

"Yesterday he admitted a public order offence after shouting abuse at police."

If he'd thrown Domestos at the cops instead he'd have been done for a "bleach of the police".

I'll get my coat.

Oh, no doubt!

"surely it should have been Peacehaven ;)"

"There's never an electricity sub-station about when you need one."

Those things can be damned handy at times, can't they?

"This is what our overprotective but blamealot cluture has brought us."

Spot on!

"I'll get my coat."

The old 'uns are the best... ;)
