    I laughed my ass off when that cop jumped into the window, they had no idea what they were doing. Always approach the car with your gun up and go up the DRIVERS side, never jump into the car when you have no idea what the dude has in there.

    It was a crappy fixed penalty notice anyway. Even if he did drive off, big deal, go after the old boy and stop him and explain that you're not finished and were in the middle of writing him a ticket for £30.

    What you don't do is jump on his bonnet like some sort of idiot. You certainly don't give yourself tennis elbow either by hammering his window with an extendable baton. LOL.

    Funny, but also frighteningly ridiculous.

    Then was an old dude who was a dumb ass and ran from the cops. I think a lot of things are not being reported.

    Holy crap! :eek:

    Why the hell do they smash up the windows like that? pull a gun and make the guy come out or something.

    Those 70 year olds ... very dangerous. :rolleyes:

    I'd be curious how fast he was running from the cops, it didn't look like they were going that fast.

    From time to time we see some British car chase videos and we do something remarkably international:

    We don't do things that way over here. Anyway, jumping on bonnets [hoods to you] is so much more exhilarating.

    Fortunately being in Wales police are not normally carrying guns,in fact it seems they shouldn't have batons or cars for that matter.

    So you start smashing windows in the driver's face while doing jumping jacks? :)

    I agree that it is a good thing! :eek:

    It's good exercise.

    No, actually, the police were behaving like lunatics, and I'm glad to note they were suspended from duty.

    The smashing window part not really but then again he did run from the cops. I have a feeling he did not tell the cop that he needed his meds.

    I did see that. I was curious if there was a write-up of the story.

    I think adrenaline is a worse in certain situations than any other drug ... or more like testosterone+adrenaline combo in this case.

    I'm sorry- this is in no way excusable.

    Probably didn't get the chance--any rational person with proper training would have been able to say at least two words to the suspect once in the seconds after he was stopped again "Explain yourself" after all he did pull over again.
