Cop didn't want to get his blues wet

So f*****g get this, that guy running in the water is a sex offender and the cop on his heels must have been 2 meters away from the guy when he tripped over in the water, but he chickened out and didn't tackle him for fear of his sexy blues. So that guy is actually still at large because of that lazy cop.

Am I being harsh with this analysis? EASY tackle there.

The waters were known to be infested with crocs from the story I saw. Crocodiles are scary as f*** so I don't blame him.

They know who he is ... Why make your life more difficult ?

Dry cleaning vs. Catching someone whom you know know where they live ?

The idiot pays for dry cleaning, the smart guy goes and sits at their house.

Now imagine if you were a resident nearby and the police issued a warning to secure their homes and "be alert".

All because of him.

meh, it is the normal fair, police ambo's etc are not to enter waterways that are unknown, due to the hazards that may be there, remember all state goverment have a zero harm health and saftey

seems silly, but long run it has cut down on injury claims (twisted ankles, trips, damaged knees etc),

I heard the same thing. F*** him, if he ran into croc infested waters I'd let him go too. Well, I'd shoot him in the back first and let the crocs eat him but either way I'd stay out of the water.

No, they're all too busy chasing down "hoons" to bother with trivial things like rapists and kiddy molesters. Jeez man, get your priorities right.

Really? Look @ size difference plus extra gear on the cop. Also, dont forget due to ethnic differences whites float, blacks sink. Not being racist but its true - look @ all the black swimmers. Whites naturally have higher fat mass n float more.

Also works the other way too, black people tend to have really springy muscle tissue whereas Caucasian people usually have denser tissue (very broad generalisation but think basketball and sprinters and strongman competition). Fighting an aboriginal you'd surprised at the positions they can twist themselves and still apply force.

if he was escaped prisoner it means he has been found guilty? why didn't they just shoot him - why are we paying for these guns if they don't use them - as a prisoner he doesn't have the same rights as someone else

The hard truth is it's because we're piss weak. Can't even taze without an inquiry into whether it is justified as well as a mound of paperwork for the cop.

I'm so ashamed :(


Me too.

I wonder if people that are defending the cop would change their tune if this convicted sex offender molests a child before he finally gets caught. All because an officer wouldn't risk getting a bit wet.

And if that second criminal wants a drink, tell him to shut his mouth and get in the car. Why be so accommodating? These criminals are scum looking for a weakness. What did the cop get for his kind words? Resistance and having to detain him further.

Not sure about the copper should have gone swimming line, they carry a lot of public-owned electronic equipment.

But FFS, would there really be an uproar if he shot at him? I really want to know if an escaping prisoner warrants use of firearms, because IMO it should.

Police can't shoot unless their lives, the lives of fellow officers or the public is in immediate danger.

This isn't like in America where police can yell "Stop or I'll shoot" five minutes after they have riddled someone with bullets, the same laws that apply to us apply to the police.

There would have been an uproar if they shot at the guy because people then would have said it was excessive since he could have tackled him instead.

And are we seriously saying he shouldn't have just because of his electronics? It's f*****g equipment, its meant to get damaged in the line of duty, im sure they've spent more now on the subsequent search than the combined cost of that equipment x 10.

And yes it would be hilarious right now if that guy goes and molests someone and we look back at all this.

I did, nearly drowned a few times, hit a head on a rock once, that one nearly got me.. another time while wrestling a bunch of kids i took in a lung ful of water and nearly drowned but they didn't know while i was struggling under water the difference between desperation and playing..

Hate to be doing that with crocs looming about.

Why not taze the water nearby him :P

Can't we just start arming police with rubber bullets instead of real ones as default for situations like these? How often are convicts really wearing armour of any kind that a rubber bullet wouldn't be just as effective as a metal one?

Then we'd have someone complaining that police waste tax payer money by not looking after their equipment so I suspect that no matter what he did someone would complain that it was the wrong thing to do.
