How do you tell the difference

Via email, but considered worth sharing.................

A Question:

How do you tell the difference between a British Police Officer,
an Australian Police Officer and an American Police Officer?

Answer: Pose the following question:

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a firearm and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?

BRITISH POLICE OFFICER'S answer :

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the firearm have appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? Should I call 999? If I raise my gun and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed when he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself? If I shoot him, and lose the court case, does he have the opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of my family home?

AUSTRALIAN OFFICER'S answer:

BANG!

AMERICAN OFFICER'S answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! 'click'....

Daughter: 'Nice grouping, Dad! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips?'

AND WHAT DOES THIS STORY TELL US ABOUT THE STATE OF BRITAIN TODAY? ................


· WE CAN DO - NOTHING! WE CAN SAY - NOTHING! WE ARE ....... NOTHING!


· OUR BRITISH WAY OF LIFE IS NO MORE - IT HAS DISINTEGRATED.

· WE CANNOT BE OURSELVES - AS WE USED TO BE.

· WE HAVE BEEN PUT DOWN AND DROWNED BY HUMAN RIGHTS' LEGISLATION AND OTHER SILLY LEGISLATION.


· WHITE IS BECOMING THE MINORITY - IN OUR OWN LAND.


· CHRISTIANITY IS BECOMING THE MINORITY - IN OUR OWN LAND.


· WE WALK ON EGGSHELLS FOR FEAR OF OFFENDING OTHERS - IN OUR OWN LAND.


· THE GOOD, HONEST, UPRIGHT CITIZENS - HAVE NO RIGHTS


· THE BAD, DISHONEST COWARDS IN OUR SOCIETY - HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS.



This is my opinion only to which, of course, I am still entitled - for the moment!!!

The British cop's reaction would also depend on whether the attacker was a crusading racist or an enricher out shopping. If the former applied the CPS-IPCC would supply the missing knife after the shooting.

I read a lot of German comments and today I was amused to read one with a lot of support..... wir brauchen einen wahren Fuehrer

We need a real leader.....so it is not just in Britain that people feel trapped....

I think the British police officer would say :-

"Oh no - not more damn paperwork."

For the British police officer, if it was a knife, well that would be a difficult one.

On the other hand, if it was a concealed, fully automatic table leg, BANG,BANG.........

Re: The riots and the BBC


During the riots a Turkish community went onto the streets to prevent the rioters taking control and the BBC were happy to praise this. Other communities also went onto the streets to do similar thing....but despite being shown on the programme the Sikhs from Winson Green were described as merely as 'Asian'....Sikhs seem to be invisible on the BBC. The whites who defended Enfield were given no airtime.

The most telling comment in the whole programme was a small, but packed with meaning, one at the end when Tariq Jahan, the father of one of the boys killed by a rioter in a car, was described by Sweeney as 'father of one of the dead men and a Muslim, who speaks for England'.

A Muslim? Is that at all relevant to the events? This was a small and subtle attempt to tell us that Muslims are good people really...as if anyone doubted that. Sweeney is telling us that Muslims are as English as fish and chips and this one man is a standard bearer for all Muslims, an example of the true face of Islam in the UK seeking only peace and integration.

What Sweeney doesn't tell us is that Jahan used to be a fervent member of the extremist group Hizb Ut Tahrir.
