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.


I hope he was shouting things like "kick his ass, Sea Bass!"

Shaggy0717: 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.

FTA: Officers were still searching for a weapon as The Herald went to press

what knife?


I said that there was a report of a knife, not that such a knife existed.

All of that police response for basically a domestic disturbance? And the "victim" was uninjured?

Dear gods.

RedVentrue: Why do the Brits feel the need to repeat the same info 3 or 4 times in an article?


Because they can't figure out how to repeat different info?

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.


Thermal cameras don't work though walls.
