"Hero" cops

According to the pro-bigotry crowd over at Caput Penitus Culus and FLDS Texas, I'm anti-law enforcement.  I am, of course, no such thing.  But, by the same token, neither am I one to genuflect before the icon of the self-sacrificing hero cop passed off by law enforcement sycophants.  Especially when I read stories like this one.
THREE brave teenagers were hailed as heroes last night after saving a drowning woman - as cops stood by and WATCHED.

Pals Graham McGrath and Rosie Lucey, both 18, dived into the River Clyde to haul the unconscious victim from below the water.

They dragged her to the bank where fellow Glasgow University student Reece Black, also 18, pulled her out.

Quick-thinking Rosie then brought her round with CPR.

But as the courageous trio performed the dramatic rescue, Strathclyde Police officers held back worried onlookers on Glasgow's Albert bridge.
Held back onlookers. Priceless.

But that's not the worst of it, believe it or not.  Check out this shizz.
A Strathclyde Police spokesman said: "It is not the responsibility of the police to go into the water - it's the fire and rescue service."
Now, THAT is priceless.  Spoken like a true government tool.  Which, when you get right down to it, is exactly what cops are.
