Confirmed: Hoplophobia *Is* A Form Of Insanity

Police take on the menace of fifty-something World War II re-enactors....

Hey, why does that sound familiar?
Mayor: Drebin, I don't want any more trouble like you had last year on the southside. Understand? That's my policy.
Frank: Yes. Well, when I see 5 weirdos dressed in togas stabbing a guy in the middle of the park in full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards. That's my policy.
Mayor: That was a Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed 5 actors! Good ones!
Still, it strikes me that it's a lot of messing around about supposed weapons that are as expensive as hell, but also completely useless and can't even be fired.... kind of like the average cop.

One key difference between World War II re-enactors and cops: the re-enactors are only pretending to be jackbooted thugs.

Re-enactors Vs Cops, sort of like National Socialists Vs Nationalised Socialists.

The jokes write themselves, but the key points are this: a car as a public place? Does that mean the council will someone round to clean it for you then?

Plus, what's with the police's position? The gun that's no longer actually a gun was so dangerous it had to be destroyed, but only after this guy refused to be bullied into accepting a caution on a bogus charge. In other words, the gun TNLAAG was never a threat in the first place, the filth wanted to destroy historical artifacts purely as an act of petty spite and vengance. Like Julie says, at this point what exactly is the difference between these guys and private-sector gangs?

Cutting their budget isn't enough: they deserve an ASBO.

Oh that gun was never in danger of being destroyed... "Inadvertently" sold on the other hand? Remember the Police have previous for this with two narrowly escaping jail for selling them to collectors.
