This is a question The Police

Sitting in my local pub late one night enjoying the landlord's flexible idea of what constitutes his licencing hours, a bunch of drunk blokes in raincoats burst in. Requesting to be served, one shouted at the barman "It's alright - we're not coppers!"

They were spitting images of Lt. Columbo to a man. The barman laughed them out of the pub.

New York Cops
A friend of mine (IT consultant for a german bank) was with his girlfriend and they took the subway. Being a gentleman, when she forgot her pass he lent her his, and skipped the barrier. In front of two doughnut munching cops. Who bust him.

They asked him for ID and being British, only has his passport. Which is in his hotel room.

They give the girlfriend 20 minutes to get the passport, saying that otherwise they will book him and take him down the station.

22 minutes later, a very puffed out girlfriend arrives with passport to find them writing the ticket, and leading him away. They put him in the 'pen' at the local cop shop with all the other scum of New York.

Whilst he got a lot of stares, the other 22 occupants were actually not too bad - being gang members, theives, robbers, junkies, alcoholics, and the rest of the dregs of society. But they had a single toilet to share in the middle of the pen and it was not fun. Especially when they put a psycho in with the bunch, who then went wild - think Begbie on coke - lashing out at anyone and everyone, until the cops put the nutter in solitary.

Thing is, he was arrested on Friday p.m. before a Bank Holiday. 72 hours later on the Tuesday, he was finally dragged before the judge who to his credit apologised for the ordeal before ordering his immediate release.


72+ hours in a holding pen in New York for not having a subway ticket. I think British coppers are just fine in comparison.


Apologies for length. (add joke as required)
