Well said that man!.
The UK police are nothing more then state subsidised bullies, trying to squeeze more money out of the british taxpayers; by what must be tantamount
to legalised extortion.You think you got it bad in the US - over here the police send you to court for speeding every time, they are never lenient,
what's more they don't ticket you immediately they follow you for a few miles up the motorway and to see if you break the 80mph mark and can then
recommend to a magistrate that you pay a fine in excess of 400 quid; and even recommend that the magistrate take away your license. Just proves that
they don't want to help, just get money. They can also now clamp your car for no tax, or crush your car for no insurance by forcing you to hand it
over at the side of the road, other wise you have to pay a £200 a day storage fee to get it back from their impound yards.
Because in the UK the police are quite well paid while requiring relatively little formal education to join, some of the worst type of people apply.
In my experience you get two types : the stereotypical male copper, 5 foot 10 - 6'2, 200 lbs, who's catchphrase is ' y'alrite fella' or 'can
ya step outta the car please pal' or when you know they mean business 'oi mate, turn it orf or i'll nick ya'.Rude, arrogant, chip on shoulder
because they were bullied at some point in their lives, unintelligent, generally a complete oxygen thief.
Then there is the female copper, just like the male equivalent but shorter, fatter and louder. They are the ones you want to watch out for, because
they have something to prove and will attempt to out man you by standing half a foot from you and grabbing you by the wrist, and when she realises
that a 5'4 women cannot physically manhandle a 6'3 280lbs former powerlifter ,even when you politely say that you can't do what she's asking
because you have chronic rheumatoid arthritis, and making a pitiful attempt to restrain you while her partner searches your car(if your ethnic) they
usually don't search if your white, she then accuses you of resisting arrest, and her partner then puts you in a headlock and tackles you to the
floor on the side of the road; and you end up being led away in a police van, thus another load of fines.
Inevitably you'll have dealings with them at some point in your life but If my experience has taught me anything it's that you cannot reason with
them, and that avoiding them for as long as you can is the best way not to end up incarcerated at her majesties pleasure.
