    yeah it happens fairly regularly
    whenever the drug squad are raiding a house they are usually accompanied by the armed response unit.

    no-that was just yer man pointing the machete out the window and making "pow, pow" noises. Armed respoce unit??? He just needed a good clip round the ear from his Mammy...

    Just f***ing shoot him. Might make the news more interesting instead of watching sh1te about water meters.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,209 ✭✭✭Redzer7


    It'd be good to see a mad situation live on the news, some mad fecker having murder with the guards (providing nobody suffered a serious injury though) although a bit of banter would make for good viewing.

    I can imagine the drama

    I get excited when a mad lad on a push bike shouts at people at a bus stop outside my house.

    He does this most weekends.

    Errr, a conclusion isn't terminated with a question mark.

    It may be better to watch what conclusions you, yourself, jump in with.

    I simply asked a question. Easily identified by the question mark at the end.
