Backwoodsman BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2481* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 23 Sep 21


"On the whole, the aggressors are not "ordinary folks." They're the police, the agents of the state, who generally act under orders. One more thing: a bunch of protesters sitting on tarmac is not putting lives in danger. They are not carrying guns or swords or tasers and they are not driving tons of wheeled metal at high speed.

'Tons of wheeled metal' running up the back-end of a line of traffic, stopped on a motorway because 'a bunch of protestors' are sitting in the carriageway, is highly likely to result in someone, probably several someones, being killed or seriously injured.

You should talk to my brother-in-law, who was a traffic-cop in the Cambridgeshire Constabulary - you know, one of those 'aggressors' and 'agents of the state' of yours who, 'acting on orders', have to go and pick up the pieces of human remains and wash away the blood at the scenes of RTAs, and then go to break the news of someone's gruesome death to their devastated relatives, make cups of tea for them, sit with them, hold them as they scream and fall apart. He has some 'interesting' stories to tell. So 'interesting' he's been unable to work as a public-facing police officer for the past three years because of his PTSD, brought to a head when he was one of the first two officers on-scene at the Toronto city-centre van attack, when 10 people were killed and 16 critically injured.

For someone who thinks he knows more about everything than everybody, you really are bit of a thoughtless prick, aren't you?
