Subject: Being a Police Officer in Canada/OZ/USA

Question:

How do you tell the difference between a Canadian Police Officer,

Australian Police Officer, and an American Police Officer?

Consider the following scenario:

You're a policeman walking (Okay, maybe an American officer is pushing the limits of credibility here) down a deserted street. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a Glock 40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you.

What do you do?

CANADIAN POLICE OFFICERS

Answer: (Immediate thought processes)

Is the knife a ceremonial kirpan?

Does he prefer to communicate in English or French?

Will this negatively impact my chances of promotion?

Is this just his way of telling me that he pays my wages, and wants my job?

Would this be an appropriate time to hug him and sing Koombaya?

Will the media do a profile of him and how he was loved by everyone including his dog?

Is the alleged "client" a member of an Environmental Group?

Is he just a squeegee kid / pan handler trying to make a living on the mean streets?

Is he a member of a gang that is just "misunderstood" by society?

Is he a recent illegal immigrant to this country, and just doesn't know how to approach the police?

Is he recently released on parole and hasn't been properly integrated back into the community?

Is he a victim of fetal alcohol syndrome, and just doesn't understand what he is doing?

Is he a member of the Muslim community or other visible minority group?

Warn and Charter him as he approaches.

AUSTRALIAN OFFICERS

Answer: BANG!

AMERICAN OFFICERS

Answer: BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Click....

(Sounds of reloading) BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Click.

Fixed it for ya :icon_tongue:

Glock has not come out with a model 40 yet. For models chambered in the .40S&W they have the full size G22, the compact G23, the sub-compact G27, the competion model G35, and the long slide G24. :hehe:
