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.
