Skip to comments.UK Cops Confiscate Farmer’s Shotgun “Just in Case”
Posted on 04/27/2011 7:38:16 PM PDT by Immerito
Tracy St Clair Pearce, 50, [above] was confronted by four men carrying a chainsaw and a knife, who warned her they would kill her cattle at her farm in Colchester, Essex, dailymail.co.uk reports. She called police late on Good Friday to report the threat, but was left gobsmacked [surprised] when officers took 35 minutes to get to her home, before telling her they would confiscate her shotguns. The local constabulary confirmed the pre-emptive policing maneuver. Inspector Jim White of Essex Police said: In order to prevent any public order incidents, and to keep members of the public safe, we obtained a warrant to remove firearms. Go figure. I reckon Trace took the hump at the Old Bill for doing sweet FA about the travelers (11 call outs) and gave Plod a right earful. Rather than nick her, they took her gun.
What kind Nazis those constables are. Why don’t they just rape and kill the poor woman while they’re at it - oh wait, they’re waiting for the local “asian yoots” to do that...
The Sweeney or Gene Hunt would have laid down the law and a few fists on the villians.
I am sure they confiscated all of the chain saws and knives belonging to the bag guys and their kin.
“...Go figure. I reckon Trace took the hump at the Old Bill for doing sweet FA about the travelers (11 call outs) and gave Plod a right earful. Rather than nick her, they took her gun.”
Lost me with this gobbledygook. Anybody translate British slang out there in FReeperland? I get the bit about the “travelers” I believe to be the Gypsies, but the rest of it is totally lost to me.
any one here who owns some guns should get one more that ONLY YOU know about... and keep it very well hidden
The UK is a sick joke.
The UK is a sick joke.
Don’t ever call the police. They are not your friends. They are not there to protect you from anything.
Translation: She got mad at the police for doing nothing about the travelers and gave the policeman an earful. Instead of arresting her, they took the gun.
Travellers in the UK are usually Irish gypsies rather than Roma.
'If you can count how much you have, you don't have enough.'
Whoa! that could be dangerous. Easier to take the firearm from the law-abiding citizen. And much safer.
Not Asians, pikeys. About a thousand times worse.
If a woman reports threats of being raped what do the police do? Come to her home, confiscate her clothing and remove the locks from the doors?
Insane, absolutely insane. Liberalism is truly a debilitating brain disease.
This is true.
Old Bill = Police Station
Sweet FA - FA means Fu*k All, or jack squat.
Doing Sweer FA means not doing a damn thing.
Plod = Police officer or constable
Nick = arrest someone
woman is threatened and the cops disarm her not the thugs, wow.
The UK is truly insane.
In order to prevent any public order incidents, and to keep members of the public safe, we obtained a warrant to remove firearms.
“In order for us not to do any extra paperwork and an investigation, because we are too lazy, what we will do is protect the criminals by disarming the law-abiding citizen.”
You can’t step away from the line over there or cause a commotion, they might as well be prisoners in their own land.
Hope she has a spare one to take care of business with
I read the news today oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.
Mindless kneejerk British bureaucratic ninnyism.
Thanks to you both. Head quit spinning finally thanks to your responses.
Invariably one of the responses by the left to as yet another infringement on our right to self-defense will be: Oh come on! No one is talking about taking away you right of self-defense (when that is exactly the intent)
Well, dollars to doughnuts, that was probably the response to all the proposals they rammed down the peoples throats over in England in the process of taking away their right of self-defense.
Study this closely this where we will be in say 5 10 years if the Oppressive-leftist commies get their way.
