"There are several phrases it’s probably not wise to shout at the response constables from F Division, Ruralshire Constabulary. It is particularly unwise to shout these things when you have been involved in a disturbance, you are acting like a drunken idiot near the police van, and you are trying to obstruct some other arrests going on next to you.…and yet, in the next breath, you are apparently fearful of the consequences of them carrying out those drunken promises:
One of those phrases is the immortal “Come on then Copper; arrest me, go on, arrest me“ which usually comes after a warning to move away, then accompanied by holding out the hands in a mock handcuff stance. “Come on then Copper, see if you can arrest me”.
Then, when the team move in and arrest the person, a look of complete amazement followed by the howling complaint “Why have you arrested me? I don’t believe this, why have you arrested me?”…"
"You will have to excuse me if I’m not overly impressed with the fact that people like this will soon be electing our police commissioner. And before anyone comments that people like this do not vote, we heard all the way back in the van about how he was going to vote, preferably for a candidate who would sack all of us and throw out all those immigrants, like."So which is it?
Are you really so certain they’ll carry out this threat - hell, even remember it once they sober up – despite the fact you point out in the very same blogpost that they rarely carry out any of the others that they make?
Seems to me you can't have your cake and eat it too...
