An Driver used the loading bed of his tipper truck to block the view of a police camera van in West Yorkshire earlier this month…
The unnamed 67 year old Driver parked his truck just behind the speed camera van in Thornton in West Yorkshire and then raised its bed…
Predictably, the so-called police were straight on the case and interviewed the Driver under caution last week…
He – no doubt under the threat of prosecution – admitted “willfully obstructing a support officer acting in the execution of their duty”.
The so-called police said the man “risked losing his licence” if he did it again.
He was given a conditional caution, supposedly “prohibiting” him from parking within 20 meters of any mobile speed camera.
He was also threatened to never again to do anything to willingly obstruct a speed cameras view,
and to remove all social media posts relating to it.
Finally, he was issued with a Section 59 Notice under the ‘Police Reform Act’ — I love how these names, have nothing to do with what they are, don’t you? — which means a repeat “offence” may result in the seizure of his vehicle.
Most social media users praised the man’s actions, which the so-called Police did not like one bit!
As there are clearly no crimes happening in West Yorkshire — except for those perpetrated by
the so-called Police perhaps — they took to social media to criticize those praising his actions.
This is my take on the polices’ strategy here:
1) You have interfered with our attempts to extort your fellow Motorists;
2) We will now threaten and intimidate you for doing this;
3) We can’t really do anything, but instead we’ll pretend that we are being the good guys by “letting you off” with a conditional discharge;
4) But if you even THINK about obstructing our extortion business in future, we’ll come and steal your truck!
Does this sound like a public service, or a mafia organisation to you?
I’d love to hear your views in the comments below!
All the best,
