Don’t you wish there were people around like this woman in Ohio, who jumped in to assist an officer having a spot of bother?

    They are out there mate, it’s just that they are the silent majority.

    One night shift I pulled someone over who turned out to be very anti…long story short there was a tussle that ended up with us both on the ground with him on top. Next thing I know a car screeches to a halt next to us, fella jumps out, applies Vulcan death grip type thingy to scrote, helps me cuff srotey, he checks I was ok, jumps back into his car and drives off into the night.

    Didn’t get his name or reggo as I was too buggered, would have liked to have bought him a pint or two if I knew who he was.

    I had it once with a taxi driver who suddenly pulled in front of two scrotes that I was chasing. Both landed over the bonnet of his motor and I managed to nick them both by the time my oppo turned up. Thing was, the taxi driver had a punter on board and as soon as said sh~tbags were off his motor he was away. Doesn’t happen often but when it does it makes you feel a bit better about humanity.

    I love it when criminals get suprised.

    Years age a couple of guys on my shift turned up at a report of a break in to a car one nightshift. They expected to find the suspect long gone but instead found him sitting quietly in the driver’s seat of a car with Mr Middle Age Respectable Type Witness standing beside the door.

    After cuffing the suspect they got the story from the well spoken witness which included the gem “When I grabbed him he started to struggle. I put one finger up each nostril and told him if he didn’t sit still I’d rip his fucking nose off his face”.

    I think the witness was ex forces or rugby type. Mr Middle Age Accountant exterior but not to be messed with.

    In a similat vein I saw a news report where I recognised some names. Two brothers in their 40s who had been fitness fanatics but also came to police attention for fighting and drunken distiurbances. Really well built and could handle themselves. One of the few calls I ever put out for urget assistance was 20 years earlier when facing one of the brothers armed with a baseball bat with a drink in him outside his ex girlfriends house. The news report incident had been these two guys coming out their fathers house in a rough area. They got jumped by a crowd of 7 or 8 teenage thugs. The gang came off worse by a large margin. In fact the brothers got charged with serious assault but were cleared by CCTV footage showing they had acted in self defence. I can just imagine the teenage neds thinking “8:1 against two old guys – no contest”

    I remember chasing a shoplifter half my age (literally) when a white van man stopped and offered me a lift.I got in and hid behind the dashboard.When we caught up with the thief the driver said “are you going to get out and catch him?” I said “not yet,wait until he’s knackered”. A few hundred yards later the youngster was blowing hard so I got out of the van around the corner as fresh as a daisy and grabbed him.He was totally shocked.Back at the station he still hadn’t realised I had been given a lift and thought I was Seb Coes older brother.I didn’t tell him the truth and he still thinks all the police are mega-fit on my borough.

    Trouble is, in UK we’d more than likely get sued for helping. It’s never stopped me mind but i suspect most will be reluctant to assist fearing repercussions.

    There would be more but there is an ‘urban myth’ that helping the Police by laying on hands might get you arrested

    I have always supposed that providing you guys say “Help” or “Give us a hand” that it would be “assisting a constable” in accordance with our citizenly duty at Common Law, and all would be well……
