British "human Rights" Madness Again
A yob who spent all day on a roof lobbing bricks at cops was "rewarded" with a KFC takeaway. Police gave him the meal because of his HUMAN RIGHTS as the suspected car thief staged his second rooftop siege in seven months.
Last night, furious locals blasted his soft treatment. One, Leanne Roberts, 19, said: "It's disgraceful. People are starving while he is served like a king."
And John Swatton, 74, added: "If I was in charge I'd shoot him down with a rubber bullet. Public funds are being wasted molly-coddling him."
Neighbours in the road -- which was closed -- in Gloucester city centre identified the man as Barry Chambers, 26. He scaled the three-storey house early yesterday after allegedly stealing a car and leading police on a high-speed chase. Up to 50 cops with riots vans were said to be at the scene. After cops were bombarded by bricks from a chimney for 12 hours, the food and cigarettes were sent up by crane.
A police spokesman said: "He demanded various things and one was a KFC bargain bucket. We have to look after his human rights."
He finally came down just before 10pm after 19 HOURS. Neighbours said Chambers climbed on a roof near a police station last November -- and came down after he got food.

I all for just leaving. I htink we should do that at riots as well.
Lets just leave, heaven forbid we abuse someone's human rights.
And then later when people are screaming that the police ought to do something, we come in and take care of business!

I'd like to see Taser come up with a shoulder fired version with multiple darts and 100 foot leads, just for situations like this.
It'd be just like skeet shooting...

He also demanded a pack of his favourite cigarettes! Where does that come under human rights? I daren't even get started on this one!

This looks like a job for the 12 ga. beanbag round. Or perhaps the Fire Brigade could loan you a water cannon."My motivation is slipping, people bug me, and I'm tired of wasting my time on drivel."

Don't they make net launchers? I mean, come on, tangle him up with something like an old-fashioned bolo or something. The weapon wouldn't kill him, but the sudden stop at the end of the fall would at least take the fight out of him.

Got bring up a copy of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. Then bring up a copy of the European Convention on Human Rights. You'll be amazed at the crap we have to put up with here.

What about the rights of those whose houses he smashed up? Or the people whose cars he trashed by throwing bricks at? No, poorly handled by a guy with his eyes on the next rank. I'm disappointed that no one from the original car chase followed him up and dealt with him at that time.To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

I'd have volunteered to shoot him. I've got a bow and arrows, so it wouldn't even have been violating the gun laws.

And if the civil courts over there are anything like in the US the family will be there suing the crap out of the city, mayor, chief and officers involved. And they WILL win. This is a tough situation to handle. I know what we would like to do but of course this always differ from what we have to do.

Our civil courts aren't like yours, thank God!
