gretzkyscores: Who the hell takes *4 hours* to go grocery shopping? I can do mine for a family of 3 in 30-45 minutes.
big pig peaches: With all the gear they have, why don't these guys have a thermal camera so they can see that the house is empty. One of these idiotic standoffs would probably pay for a dozen of the things.

Honest Bender: It takes him 4 hours to go grocery shopping?
RedVentrue: Why do the Brits feel the need to repeat the same info 3 or 4 times in an article?
You Are All Sheep: No, what needs to happen is they need to shoot 'detection strings' thru the house. a .50 cal armor piercer should be able to do it, with a string tied to the end. Shoot 20-30 of these thru the house ever few feet and then when someone moves against a string, you'll know someone is there.
AndreMA: Honest Bender: It takes him 4 hours to go grocery shopping?Some people combine trips and run other errands on their way to the grocery store.Effectively kidnapping all the residents of the area by confining them in their homes is a gross over-reaction to a report of one guy with a knife. Surprised they didn't call in an air strike.
pjbreeze: He was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon. Could they arrest Donald Trump? He's offensive.
Anayalator: Surprised they didn't start shooting for his lack of compliance.
OnlyM3: The american gestapo is the bestist gestapo.
Huntceet: They still let the Brits have knives? I thought they were down to sporks only.
zimbomba63: Huntceet: They still let the Brits have knives? I thought they were down to sporks only.I thought that a British medical group recommended that large kitchen knives should no longer be sold, because the Brits can't cook for shiat anyway./ No, I'm not kidding about the knives part// I was just kidding about the cooking part, don't get pissed off and burn Washington again, you barbarians!
zimbomba63: My favorite was the multi-hour stand off, where the onlookers were shouting for the guy to come out and surrender. After this went on for a while, the cops realize that the guy that they were looking for was one of the shouting onlookers.
Sean M: //Really wish they'd clean house and get rid of the trigger-happy, power-hungry military-wannabes which put the profession in a bad light.
