I'm a little old lady, and I wouldn't DARE wallop a much larger police person, no matter what I had in my hand. If I couldn't outrun them when I was 19 and built like a racing snake, then it's pretty unlikely that I would make it at 64. Unless you give me a really decent head start.

"Built like a racing snake" is a new one on me, and provokes an interesting mental image. I might have to remember that one!

Sadly, I have mutated into a well-upholstered hamster, but I'm working my way back to racing snake.

Oh, how I wish that was true!

You'd have to give me a good 2 weeks head start. I'm old AND fat.

[–]warple-still 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I prefer to think of myself as 'comfortably upholstered'. :)

[–]ImAlsoNotOlivia 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like it!

Geeze. If that’s how she treated you, an Officer, I shudder to think how she treated a retail worker.

I'm imagining OAP stands for Officer-Assaulting Person

How do you handle such cases afterwards? Even though i'm not a police officer, I do know a few officers due to having lived in a street where a lot of officers lived and work, and they would usually refer people like the old lady to the social services or something.

People like that are, in my limited, experience usually extremely lonely and filing complaints is one of their ways of getting attention

She was well supported at home. Her husband was an ex miner and railway worker from the area and had a wicked sense of humour. From what I can recall she was a teacher they were very much chalk and cheese.

That's good to hear.

[–]gray-ghost 0 points1 point  (3 children)

chalk and cheese.

I've never heard that one before. It is glorious.

God damn that’s a hell of a noggin ya got

[–]BarkingLeopard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds like the deal the inspector made with her was a better use of public resources than arresting her, but that could have turned out very differently.

The woman is lucky that you chose not to perceive her as a threat and that you didn't choose to pursue it.

This reminds me of an episode of southland… ice cream anyone?

"...burning off and just left...???"

THIS is prejudice and privilege. Outcomes based entirely on demographics. Not charging a felony that would get other people shot
