and I sure-hell don't want to hear how wonderful their 'law enforcement' personnel are.
But the small amount of traffic that passes through the Dorset village came to a dramatic standstill - after armed police opened fire on a van in broad daylight.
After secretly pursuing the vehicle, they waited until it came to halt, and then burst out into the road firing rounds into the tyres.
They then smashed a window and dragged the driver out in shocking scenes that followed an investigation into alleged plans to blow up a nearby mosque.
Ah, a planned terrorist attack stopped, right?
Yesterday, as it emerged that none of the men had been charged with any crimes, police insisted the tyre shooting had been safe.
Oh yeah, shooting out tires on a crowded street, whatever could go wrong? Especially since(I guess we know who that moron officer in Maryland has been taking lessons from)
Officers had followed England Defence League member John Broomfield, 27, home from work and waited until he was stuck in traffic in the tourist spot before they pounced.
The level of idiocy involved in this is staggering. HE'S FRIGGIN' STOPPED IN TRAFFIC and they shoot out the tires! And then smash the window and drag him through it?
Wonder if they're going to replace the tires and window they destroyed?
Note the last line of this report:
'At this stage there is no indication whatsoever that any of the mosques in Dorset are under threat of attack.'Found over at Eternity Road
