no they certainly wouldn't, they would have been hauled up in front of a military court and sent packing after a nice month at the glasshouse in colchester

Have you seen the latest crimes figures and the arrest rates, they are a disgrace. The police in the UK have an appaling record of brutality, murder and racism yet nothing is done to stop this trend.
Im sure theyd rather be after rapists and murderers than drunken slags pissing in the streets and squaddies smashing the place up.
I dont like the police, i dont like the mind set of people who want to join the police, and i dont like the stormtrooper attitude they display on occasion. Having said that, the many dealings ive had with police has shown me that if you give respect to them they will give it back, that is not to say 'praising their authority', but just treating them as you would any normal person.
Frankly if i got the amount of abuse they do i may be tempted to a bit of brutality myself.

Last time I checked being drunk wasn't a crime and the free speach law would allow you to say whatever you wanted. But in this day in age this is what happens from the abuse of power. I'm just happy I wasn't on location, I would have been sent to jail with this guy for trying to help him with these cops.

To be pedantic its actually Greater Manchester Police, as although it geographically is in Lancashire of Old, Wigan is under the Metopolitan area of Greater Manchester.
