  1. Nah.they got completely wrong,it is a Tory MP running away from Parliament.

  2. “I’m coming for you politicians” suggests he didn’t pose a serious threat – I wouldn’t be surprised to learn he was unarmed.
    Possibly just homeless and looking for a warm winter in prison.

  3. Hilarious typo Steve 🙂 – Freudian slip? :

    the many was led away by police.

  4. I don’t know fuller details and I’m aware photos can give an incorrect impression but am I alone in being very disturbed, unsettled and concerned by that image? Is that why that one was released?

    • Absolutely , just look at the Cop with the SUB MACHINE GUN ffs , head shot or what . CHrist is this what the Cops have become under the bloody Tories , gun toting trigger happy wild west effing cowboys !
      Deeply concerning to say the least.

  5. If it’s the weapon pointed at the suspect that concerns you Maria, the officer wouldn’t shoot with a cobbled stone ground and three friendlies – the danger of ricochet is far too great.
    Safety will be on – aiming it at the suspect’s face from where he can see the weapon is to intimidate him into compliance.
    Police are trained to shoot at ‘centre mass’.
