Jus’ doin’ our job Ma’am

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Here’s a video of cops doing what cops do every day. It’s from Ohio in the US of A but happens with regular frequency throughout the towns & motorways of the UK.

You seldom hear about this kind of work. Officers often put themselves in danger in order to stop people killing themselves. I know colleagues who have stood on the wrong side of a railway bridge parapet holding onto each other’s belts to stop someone jumping onto the overhead wires or tracks below.

It’s not on the news very often.

Backhand a screaming female in the middle of a riot & you’ll get more news footage than you can shake a stick at. Save someone’s life and nobody wants to know.

C’est la vie.

    In deleting my comments and refusing to allow me to respond to any of yours that are directed at me, it does look as if there is unanswerable truth in what I have been saying.

    George,

    I haven’t deleted any of your comments. I;ve deleted maybe 3 posts in 4 years of blogging, I simply don’t delete comments just because people don’t agree with me, how boring would life be.

    I’ve just checked the other thread & your comments don’t appear to be showing. All I can say is that sinc I last posted to you, I have been at work, it’s 2.45am now & I’ve been home about 5 minutes. I;d be interested to know when these comments disappeared. Are you sure you have;t done something to them (I don’t know whether a poster can delete their own comments) but I assure you I haven’t!

    And I would welcome your response to my points where I’ve pointed out inconsistencies in your approach!

    Quality work by that officer.

    Over here a member of the SMT would remind him of Health and Safety implications. This happened to a colleague who dealt with a similar situation, no cakes and a well done for him.

    I agree that you don’t hear stories like these in the media,when policing gets things wrong, they should be held to account, but when it goes well, the media should acknowledge the fact.

    Still can’t post unless I change my identity (name, email, IP).

    No, I haven’t deleted any of my own entries, only some one with blog owner access can delete comments or set the spam filter.

    I would like to give response to your points; would you like to reset your spam filter?

    Hmm,
    I wonder what you did to upset the spam filter then…

    I’ll have a look but, to be honest, I haven’t a clue how it works since I never set anything on it. it was installed when the blog was set up by the guy who owns the domain.

    I’ve found an IP in the blacklist similar to one you used last week, so I’ve taken that out of the blacklist. See if that works.
    You must have been a naughty boy ‘cos it gave you a spam rating of 96 (whatever that means) did you include several links in a reply, I understand if you put more than a couple it thinks you’re spamming it & bans you.

    See if this works…

    By the way, my IP address is not consistently unique to me;
    it is a dynamic one,
    shared (on and off) with a few million other users.
    (I do not know what they might have been doing.)

    I seldom include more than one link in a reply.

    If it works, thanks.
