So back last century a few Yank comedians chuckled over the British coppers. Bill Hicks used to joke about the coppers yelling at the "Hooligans" that the Plod faced. Robin Williams used to point out the American cops would cry "Stop, or I'll shoot!" while their transatlantic clones, unarmed and embarrassed, could only shout "Stop! or I'll say stop again...".
So who's laughing now, hmmmm? FIVE TIMES IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD. No Patriot Act bullshit, no raiding library computers, just the point-blank insertion of five lead slugs into the skull of someone they thought might be suspicious.
Which is why Britons never shall be slaves.
