    South Yorkshire Police A57 snow response criticised

    It would appear bad weather is now also the fault of the Police

    Drivers stranded for three days as a result of heavy snow in South Yorkshire could have died as a result of the slow police response, a report has said.
    The report by the county's emergency services said South Yorkshire Police took too long to grasp the scale of the situation on the A57 last December.
    Some 200 drivers were stranded for three days as a result of the snow.
    The force welcomed the report and said its major emergency plans had since been updated.
    During the snowfall, one of the heaviest experienced in South Yorkshire for many years, motorists and lorry drivers were stuck in drifts on the A57 Worksop Road between Todwick and Worksop.

    Should have heeded the snow warnings.
    Plus i was forgetting how we have all those snow cats and snowmobiles at our disposal here!

    Where was the fire brigade? They call themselves "Fire and Rescue" now. Plus they have more toys than us.
    the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.

    A lot of this snarl up happened right outside Aston Fire Station.... go figure.
    A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.


    The last thing I want to do is hurt you but it's still there on my list of options, so are you coming quietly.........?

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
