I don't think I've ever heard of any British criminals that weren't Jack the Ripper or James Bond villains.

i think the worlds most successful mass murderer was from Britannia

he was a doctor who poisoned people and stole their belongings, he had over 200 confirmed kills on his account but the actual number was estimated to be around 300 or 400

Most of our criminal activity occurs in small towns, and we don't have the media permeating the entire country 24/7 so most of what happens goes relatively unreported.

There's Charlie Bronson. They made a film about him, Tom Hardy was in it.

Exactly. Every area is covered by an armed response team for dealing with more serious **** .

As a British citizen I find this offensive and hilarious.

You do know British police have guns.
User avatar #13 to #10 - drldrl (08/13/2013) [-]
Only some, most do not carry them for normal patrols.
User avatar #15 to #10 - ningyoaijin (08/13/2013) [-]
They don't.

Emergency officers do when they're specifically required to do so, but that's very rare.

This is fake. The man is wearing an English police uniform, but he has a knife. Who has ever seen an English policeman with a weapon?

Have you ever been to sowning street.
User avatar #7 to #2 - thegamegestapo (08/13/2013) [-]
Actually he's Special Branch
User avatar #3 - heartlessrobot (08/12/2013) [-]
And then he's arrested for having any sort of weapon.

Meanwhile, across the water in Northern Ireland.

"Due to the elevated threat level the personnel face from armed paramilitary groups, unlike the majority of police services in the United Kingdom, the PSNI routinely arms all of its officers with firearms and is the only territorial police service in the UK to do so.

In addition the PSNI is the only police service in the UK which allows its officers to carry their issue sidearm off-duty.[20]

Officers are issued the Glock 17 pistol, phasing out the now considered obsolete Ruger Speed Six revolvers previously issued. Previously long arms were routinely issued: either the Heckler & Koch MP5, Remington 870 shotgun or rifles such as Heckler & Koch G3s, G36Cs or HK33s which replaced Ruger AC-556 select fire rifles. Long arms are still routinely carried in areas of higher threat such as North and West Belfast or various border areas.

**** ye Norn Iron.

Remove prods, problem solved.
England can foot the bill.

Somewhat related, the newer models of 'cruiser' bikes, similar to the one pictured by Huffy and Schwinn and such, are very nice. The Point Beach by Schwinn is a great single speed, and the Del Rio is a nice hybrid and is a seven speed IIRC. I personally have a Huffy Cranbrook and I love it. Great riding posture and looks simply sexy.

Sauce: I assemble bikes for a living now.
User avatar #17 to #16 - ManInKilt (08/13/2013) [-]
I wish Schwinn would make a new version of the old Phantom bikes.
User avatar #18 to #17 - brokentrucker (08/13/2013) [-]
That's pretty much what a Point Beach is. The only difference is that the Point Beach doesn't seem to have a fuel tank.
User avatar #19 to #18 - ManInKilt (08/13/2013) [-]
I saw one one time, it was flat olive drab with flat black rim and had numbers and tars on it and made all WWII looking. You know who makes one like that? Cruiser, no chrome, fenders, tank, the works.
User avatar #20 to #19 - brokentrucker (08/13/2013) [-]
I wouldn't be able to tell you without going through the catalog again, but I really haven't seen anything like that recently. Well, in particular the tank and no chrome. Half the other cruisers have fenders and built in seat racks and such, a few with flippin bottle openers built into the frame.
User avatar #21 to #20 - ManInKilt (08/13/2013) [-]
Bottle opener in the frame? That is amazing!
Anyway I guess it might have been just a cool custom job.
User avatar #22 to #21 - brokentrucker (08/13/2013) [-]
They do have the Phantoms on Ebay and the like.
User avatar #23 to #22 - ManInKilt (08/13/2013) [-]
they're cool. Those old 50's bikes are the best.
I actually have two 50's cruisers, originals. Problem is they're girls bikes.
One was my grandma's, a Schwinn Starlet and the other is a blue/white huffy.
User avatar #25 to #23 - brokentrucker (08/13/2013) [-]
A big problem with modern day bikes by huffy and such, is chinese quality control, or rather, the lack there of. Sometimes you get decent models in that are just absolute **** . On the flip side of the coin, good, american made bikes are expensive as fuuuuck.
User avatar #26 to #25 - ManInKilt (08/13/2013) [-]
I'd only by an American one, cousin of mine had a chinese one down to the shore the thing rusted through In a month.

I'm also happy they make whitewalls again.
User avatar #27 to #26 - brokentrucker (08/13/2013) [-]
Get an aluminum frame. No rust.
#29 to #27 - ManInKilt (08/13/2013) [-]
heres that bike.
a bit more of a stylized cruiser, but still cool.
User avatar #38 to #29 - brokentrucker (08/15/2013) [-]
Yeah. You should totally look into the modern cruiser or hybrid models if you're interested in something like that. I put together an exact clone of that, two...three days ago, only difference being the seat rack was a tad bigger and colored to the frame, and the forward light/reflector wasn't so big.
User avatar #28 to #27 - ManInKilt (08/13/2013) [-]
especially for a shore town, that salt air is a killer.
