Police Officer Test

How do you tell the difference between an Australian Police Officer, a Canadian Police Officer, an American Police Officer and a Scottish police officer?

QUESTION:
You’re a policeman, on duty by yourself.
You are walking on a deserted street late at night.
Suddenly, an armed man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you and screaming something that sounds like obscenities, raises the knife and lunges at you.
You are carrying your gun and are an expert in using it.
However, you have only a split second to react before he reaches you.

What do you do?

ANSWERS:

Australia:

Firstly, the Officer must consider the man’s human rights.

  1. Does the man look poor and/or oppressed?

  2. Is he newly arrived in this country and does not yet understand the law?

  3. Is this really a knife or a ceremonial dagger?

  4. Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

  5. Am I dressed provocatively?

  6. Could I run away?

  7. Could I possibly swing my truncheon and knock the knife out of his hand?

  8. Should I try and negotiate with him to discuss his wrong-doings?

  9. Why am I carrying a truncheon anyway and what kind of message does this send to society?

  10. Does he definitely want to kill me or would he be content just to wound me?

  11. If I were to grab his knees and hold on, would he still want to stab and kill me?

  12. If I raise my truncheon and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself?

  13. If I hurt him and lose the subsequent court case, does he have the opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of my family home?

Canada:

BANG !

America:

BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !

Glasgow Police Officer:

“Haw, Jimmie…! Drop the wee knife reet this minute noo, unless ye want it stuck up yer arse!”

That might be so for Qld Cliff, but down here in Victoria it would be BANG BANG BANG

None of those 13 questions would apply.

First the cop would pepper spray the assailant
Then they’d Tazer them.

Thankfully we don’t live in a society where they’d pull the Glock as a first response

Unless you live in Victoria

(Alleged) armed robber shot by police in Sydney last night. Recorded on audio & video.

If a man armed with a knife is lunging at a cop there is absolutely no way the pepper spray is coming out.

The Glock will be warm.

Check the tag on the post & now read the punch line.

It is a fuck’n joke Joyce. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
