This is the Gards all over. Either you call them and they tell you "there's nothing we can do".they basically said "Ah yeah we'll look into it". It happened on Parnell Street so I was asking if the guards would be checking CCTV in the area seeing as there must be something on the pubs and restaurants there. The response from the desk was basically "Go fuck yourself" in the words of "Well we know how to do our job, do you want to investigate it yourself". So in other words, you don't know how to do your job, because you're not fucking doing it. I bet the incident wasn't even logged the night it happened.
Yeah, they are a gang. Look what happens when Maurice McCabe tries to go against the gang culture.The cops are just a gang in every country anyway, a gang of bastards that do whatever they want as long as they think they can get away with it.
New Yorkers are assholes, up to having a point of pride about it. The city's motto could be "Fuck you. ME!" with somebody pointing at their chest.I'm not minimizing anything, but there's a different level of anger and aggression with some of the PDs here.

It was ever thus. "I'm walking here!"
The president is the consummate asshole.
Boris Johnson is a just as proud to be an asshole in his own way.
That interaction in the park with the lady and the dog - you take race out of it, and it's very typical NY behaviour - from both sides. Moreso her obv.
And no one can bear to leave the expensive shithole because they're convinced there is some magic happening there.
Nice place to visit though. Lots of cool museums.
Oh for sure.There's a difference with being an asshole "I'm walkin here", and roaming around in body armor with guns threatening to beat people up and put them away though.
DC is Chocolate City, maaanDC is certainly better with respect to the cops.
I look forward to Egg's posting telling you how all of these were actually your fault.Some select NYPD interactions:
I had a cop freak out because I looked at him. One of the group came after me to tell me I shouldn't "eyeball" police.
I had a cop lose it because I asked if a subway station was closed, square up to me, threaten to beat me up and call me stupid. (Commanding officer happened to notice the interaction, came over and pulled him off me. "They keep fuckin askin me the same dumb questions chief.")
I had a cop who was a shaking, sweating, strung out addict going nuts because I was riding my bike in a subway station. I told him I wasn't, and there were cameras all over the station that can be looked at to confirm this, this resulted in a metldown "have you any idea how difficult that is?".
This was a good one: cop pulls me over on my bike because I didn't ride through a red light. This took me a moment to get. Eventually I realized he was screaming about "all my buddies who just ride through red lights". But, he pulled me over, because I didn't, and he could "at least catch up with me because of that". Just to be clear here: I was sitting at red lights, and he pulled to scream about "my buddies" meaning cyclists, and kept screaming at me until I agreed that was terrible, then he tore off again.
So, yeah, I've had plenty of interaction with Irish Guards, but I've never had Guards warning me not to look at them.

Ah c'mon dude. I'm not saying Guards are sound, but apart from your first example everything you said involved you telling them what they ought to be doing. What reaction do you think you'd get if you told a barman he's doing his job wrong, or doctor, or pretty much anyone?I look forward to Egg's posting telling you how all of these were actually your fault.
The only instance in which you could say I was telling them what they should be doing was the bouncer instance, when I was telling them that they can't have an agreement with bouncers to beat people up outside pubs. Because that's kind of the exact opposite of their job. Seems like it should be their own colleagues telling them that, not me, but seems like that doesn't happen because there were 2 or 3 of them there and the others didn't say a word to the one that was telling the bouncer they could get away with anything.Ah c'mon dude.

The current generation are those who served in the 'war on terror' where the about 2-3 tours intimidating brown people got you setup for a job in blue. The lads at this all seem to be close to that age.Aren't a lot of police in the US ex-servicemen who instead of getting good mental health care, essentially get given guns and told that they're Judge Dredd?
