bad cop no donut

Zealously motivated law enforcement officer, better safe than sorry. Two donuts.

Of course, because he's a ninja, you can't talk to him.

Farking pig ought to be sentenced to carrying the chap on his back to and from the pub and buying him pints for a farking year.
He'd think twice about shooting a blind man in the back again.

Police said the man was then returned to the hospital, where doctors agreed to allow him to have the tall, frothy beverage of his choice.

I'm guessing it was a nice tall glass of "Shutten ze Fecks-up".

Meh. Cops have confused candy bars and wallets for guns, so 'white cane' = 'samurai sword' is not that big a stretch.

typical cop

A man walks down the street. It's a street in a strange world. Maybe it's the third world. Maybe it's his f-angANGANGANGANGANG AH AH AH AHHHHHHNNNNGGGGG

after reports were received of a man walking through the town centre in Chorley, Lancashire, with a martial arts weapon.

Martial artist use their hands a weapons. Martial artist are fast. Therefore any one seen with hands should be shot in the back without warning. QED

this is what happens when you hire the cheapest you can find.
Low grade pay attracts low grade smarts.
Sometimes even better pay isn't a guarantee but, it's a start on the right path.
Pay up chumps.

I'm on the fence here. On the one hand, it's a good thing that they give cops tasers because based on the level of stupidity here the other headline might have been "Cops shoot man dead after mistaking blind cane for ninja sword." On the other hand, giving them tasers makes it super easy to "taze first, ask questions later." Lesser of two evils, perhaps.

Shoulda seen that one coming

I thought the proper procedure for handgunless bobbies was to shout "Stop! Or else I shall yell 'Stop!' again!"

Give a cop a taser and he can't wait to act like a pig, thus re-enforcing the stereotype.

SOP for the Po Po.
Kneel citizen and bow in my presence for I am better than you.

Letting them get away with this shiat is really getting old.

I hope he gets a nice paycheck. If I recall the story correctly the suspect was brandashing a katana but also naked. The cop shot this guy in mid-day because he thought his white cane might be a sword.

Yet those two Portland rednecks with rifles strapped to their backs still live. Go figure.

If the offending cop were female then Thomas Dolby needs to be paid royalties for her actions.

Blind swordsmen are the most deadly. They cannot be deceived by their eyes.
