It is all too easy to be critical of police officers and the manner in which they use the power that is bestowed upon them. So when you come across such a fine example of policing and discretion as carried out by Constable David Jay, it should receive the respect and admiration it deserves.

(Some will find the following offensive. I’m more interested in the interaction between the officer and the member/s of the community for whom the evening could have had a very different conclusion)

Real Talk Battles presents: Cop throws down in street freestyle battle:

What makes the difference between a police officer like David Jay and one who would issue an infringement for socks or make an arrest for singing? Is it temperament, education or training? What would you say you, David?

    I really don’t get why you think that this is a good thing for the police or why you think that this copper deserves “respect” for his actions (or lack there off)

    Agreed, Lynot.

    The officer’s interaction, Iain.
