No room at the Inn

Posted in The Job - General by 200

A police officer & PCSO have been stabbed during routine police work in London.

During a local operation on the transport network, they were checking bus passengers when it emerged one was wanted for a recall to prison. When he realised he was about to be arrested, the attacker pulled out a knife. A police officer was stabbed in the neck & has what is described as ‘life-threatening’ injuries. A PCSO was stabbed in the arm & has serious injuries which are not life-threatening.

A witness to the attack said: “What disturbed me most of all was the amount of blood on the pavement, it was clear that someone was very seriously injured.”

This is the sort of incident which police officers have to face every day, violent people armed with knives,  & no idea when or where someone will use it. The victims are the people the government are trying to take money away by denying pay rises & attempting to reduce their pensions. Although among the most serious of injuries, they will be but two police officers & staff who are injured every day of the year, simply going about their duties.

And the thug who did this is the sort of person that Kenneth Clarke is trying to keep out of prison.

    I hope the 2 Officers recover soon

    I hope the scum that did this gets a long prison sentence

    I hope the w*nkers that allowed the scum to be out and about are ashamed of themselves

    Serious question: Why do the Police check for Bus Tickets ?

    Hello Simon, transport for London pay the Met millions each year for them to police the bus network,part of which is assisting the ticket inspectors checking passengers at roadside stops.It’s incredibly tedious work but now and again a gem is turned up on a stop.If you have never used a bendy bus then you wont know why they are called Kens (Livingstone) free buses.You dont have to pass the driver to get on so no-one pays.His muddled socialist thinking was that everyone in London would pay.He then runs them through the deprived areas.Twat.

    Once a hatchet man, always a hatchet man. And as for the one who attacks our peace officers in this callous way…..just a minute, I believe both of the aforementioned statements could actually apply to Ken.

    The important thing is that the two officers recover from their injuries and I wish them well. I noticed that the media referred to the two injured people as both being Police officers or “2 cops stabbed”. They either don’t care or have no idea that one of the two was a Community Support Officer who, normally, receives no training in dealing with confrontation issues – though it was reported that he was injured whilst wresting with the offender, so a brave man he. One wonders, however, how the situation may have been resolved if there had been two warranted officers, both trained and equipped to deal with violent people. No matter what the personal views of CSOs are, this is a direct result of Labour’s plan to downgrade the role of Police and obtain policing on the cheap. I now await the usual scum bag legal aid lawyers queueing up to defend the offender whilst no doubt the Guardian will refer to the “two clumsy officers who cut themselves on the knife the innocent man found and was trying to hand in”.

    Is it just me, but am I the only one who dislikes the word ‘Cop’? Police (Man, Woman, Officer) or Officer would be better.

    If, like most countries in the world, we had an appropriately equiped police force (armed) might the gentleman in question perhaps have thought twice about pulling his knife? Even if not, had there been two armed officers present what’s the chances he’d only have only got one not both?
