Haha, always good to tease an undercover copper when you spot one. It's cool as well because they mostly don't beat us to a pulp or shoot us because
we are 'not showing enough respect' or whatever.
I'd hate to live in a city/nation like that.
Had my own interaction with a copper while working today. The site I've been on and off for the last few months is in a street with a couple of
properties where sex and heroin are being sold. Everyone knows it, but none of us working there give much of a toss, we're all active manual workers
with hammers, knifes and nailguns on our toolbelts so the guys in charge of that illegal trade sheepishly walk past and don't try their silly big-man
intimidation with us. Gotta lock the vans though, robbing bastards as they are.
Anyway, this afternoon, one small time heroin dealer robbed the other in the street, kicked his door in and escaped with money and drugs. I was
chuckling watching it, scumbag thieves robbing from each other.
What shocked me though was the 'victims' phoned the police, so say an hour later, a cop turned up and asked what we had seen.
I laughed that all I saw was smackhead thieves robbing off other smackhead thieves and I'm amazed that they are wasting your time dealing with this
when you could be dealing with smackhead thieves who are stealing off innocent 'normal' people.
He laughed back, yep, I have to do my job when a complaint is made, so I'm investigating what happened and I'll write a report, but all of them are a
bunch of #s so I don't really give a #.
Some folk may cry foul of personal opinion preventing impartial policing, I call it the real world with human beings carrying out that policing role
The cop was just happy to have a few decent hard working blokes supporting him in his thoughts of how ridiculous it is to be the referee in disputes
between low level thieves and drug dealers.
I like the community policing in my area.
