    Just to clarify. I'm fully not attacking them.
    One of my overly boring mates brought it up during a Mario Kart 64 session just now. He's dead set against the Popo doing anything cool.
    He brought it up before when the police did that other thing on the roof that time...

    definitely showing him this thread is a sec. First... more sailor jerrys / N64...
    Cheerrss ennnn.



    Is this all really that bad?

    This is no different to making a prank call to 999, so NO, I don't agree with their actions.

    So they procrastinated for a while, while on the job.. they shouldn't have but I doubt we'll go into further recession because they decide to slide down a hill on a snowday rather than walk around the park..

    Of all the things people could be getting upset about...

    I don't agree with them spending taxpayers' money on a gay little face reminding me to lock my doors and windows (since I threw it away) but you don't see that in the news.

    I do agree. They were not busy, not costing us any more than had they been sat at the station, it improves police-public relations, and they enjoyed themselves. I see no reason why people should get so upset, when the government pisses money out of every orifice, about 8 or so police officers taking 5. If they hadnt been there they would have only gone to MacDonalds.

    i think anyone who complains about this should get a life. they are allowed to have fun.
    imo its also fantastic to see police officers doing something infinitely more worthwhile than their regular job... booking motorists.
