America has almost zero idea what a good cop should be. Our greatest lawman was a fugitive mass murderer.

Britain is different. They know coppers.

This is awesome.  In the US, the cabbie would be asked for his green card and feel lucky not to get shot.

Huh? You mean to say it is possible to catch a fleeing teenager without shooting them in the back?

You know, Bill Nighy chasing down a couple of thieves would be pretty funny.

With pics...of him getting into a cab.

I'm getting a chuckle imagining Sheriff Joe Arpaio chasing down anyone. ( he's over 80, IIRC)

Sir Bernard jumped in the taxi in pursuit and later arrested a 19-year-old suspect a short distance away.

"Follow that car!"?

How it's done.

I always thought Sheriff Andy Taylor was a good model.

You are just mad they enforced dui laws against you.


They don't enforce DUI laws against me.

Where I live, the police don't need to rob the citizenry to make payroll and the government doesn't go full retard over alcohol. As such, despite rampant alcoholism, there's almost no DUI and never any checkpoints.

Harm reduction, it works.

Couple of guys robbed a jewelry store here in the Cayman Islands earlier this year. Off-duty police commissioner ran one of them over with his car, LOL.

We do policing a little differently in the Commonwealth.

"He was being recorded near Bruce Grove station in Tottenham for the BBC when a minicab driver alerted...."

What a Mini-cab may look like?

i dont see commissioner frank reagan in nyc making any arrests--how come?

that and did commissoner gordon make any arrests either??

Suspects were immobilized by electrical charges generated by repeated clanking together of Police Commissioner's enormous metal testicles.

Perhaps not, but then you don't have to be "hardcore" to die either, but it sure helps!

Where you live now you mean. Where you lived you claimed you should have been able to legally drink and drive because you going to the bar was just that important.

You will forgive me if I dismiss any other opinions you hold about american police as the result of your bias and stupidity.

Public transportation is nice. It is inefficient in lower population rural areas.

This has nothing to do with the content here, I'm just still kinda new, and noticed something odd.

Huh. Nope. Is there a list or something I could refer to here?

I agree with doglover, what makes a douche like yourself incapable, makes us better than most.  The fact that cops don't know the damn difference isnt our fault, its theirs.

Yes. It's called time & experience.

I live in that same borough, but a nicer part than Tottenham, and my car was broken into and stuff stolen. No police commissioner came out to chase down the crims. I was very disappointed. The police were all very nice, though. I was mostly disappointed that the forensics team couldn't find any fingerprints on the car.

The internet is full of "this game/film is 25 years old, so you should feel old", but nothing makes you feel more old than talking to the police who look like they're just out of school.

This man should be giving lessons to all other police officers.

It's an outlier. Don't get your panties in as bunch.

"Some of the old time sheriffs never even wore a gun. A lotta folks find that hard to believe. Jim Scarborough'd never carried one; that's the younger Jim. Gaston Boykins wouldn't wear one up in Comanche County."
E.T.B.

Where you live even the passengers in the car are charged with DUI. Thanks but no thanks
