As we saw earlier, people in Britishland are being told to arrest petty criminals rather than waiting for the cops to show up and do their job. (In the local parlance, this is known as a “have a go” action.)
So these two yoofs steal a scooter and after injuring a cop, speed off into the sunset. All seems to be going well until a delivery truck driver sees what’s happening and “has a go” by swerving his truck into the path of the criminals, with predictable results: they crash, and the pursuing rozzers are able to arrest one (age: 15!).
[pause to let cheering and applause die down]
Here’s the good part:
The lorry and driver were inspected by officers and the driver was not reported for any offences after [he] fully cooperated with the investigation.
I should bloody well hope not, even in Britishland. And here’s the bad part (from a clueless bystander):
The person who took the footage was critical of the truck driver’s decision to take the law into their own hands. [She] said: ‘We are a nation who prides ourselves to the preservation of life and we must allow the police to do their jobs and not take other people’s lives into our hands.’
Shut-up-shut-up-shut-up just shut the fuck up. The cops were trying to do their job, except that the little sociopath rammed the cop and crushed his leg.
Just one last thought — and it’s as true in Britishland as it is in Murka (no matter how much the Britcops have tried to suppress it): the law has never left our hands. We deputize the police to enforce the law on our behalf, but if they are unable to do so (e.g. because they’ve just had their leg crushed) then We The People are perfectly entitled to take said enforcement back into our own hands.
And if that’s too much for some people to handle, then I have but one piece of advice: get the fuck out of our way while we perform our public duty.
I just hope that Our Hero isn’t fired by his employer for doing just that.
