The Majesty of the Law

Theodore Dalrymple introduces us to the Policeman's Blog, whose author's work (now available at Amazon as Wasting Police Time) show to what depths the British nanny state has brought the Strong Arm of the Law. Here, for example, is a "Classic Car Chase" in which the police achieve less than the desired result.


Since I'm already into posting dumb YouTube videos, here's one that has nothing to do with cops. And everything to with weightless dogs

I have never been too impressed with the old Colt Police .38 Special but it sho'nuff beats a billy club when it comes to stopping a Celica.

As for the dog, a friend of mine used to do that with his dog in his Luscombe. He would wait until the dog went to sleep and then pull some negative G's. The dog would wake up very surprised....

It is a gun issue. In the US, the driver would have been shot by the police once he tried to hit an officer with the car. The British police need to start being issued firearms and start to use them.

I'm sure the driver was let off with some sort of slap-on-the-ol-wrist punishment, a loss of driving privileges, and an ASBO to boot.

In the U.S., he would have been looking at 8 to 15 years minimum for attempted vehicular manslaughter, reckless endangerment and assault on an officer of the peace.
