We hear all the time about the hundreds properties which get broken into, with no sign nor trace of the individuals responsible.
During my days on the thin blue line, my neighbours flat (whilst living in sunny Dagenham) got broken into after I had just woken up from a nightshift.
After dialling the 9’s I went into the flat in order to try and collar the unwelcome ‘guest’ as I knew that the nurse who lived in the flat, lived by herself (turns out that she was out).
As I quietly tiptoed into her property, the wrong’un was leaving with, amongst other things, her laptop.
A struggle ensued, during which I got knocked out after being hit in my temple with the laptop as the wrong’un legged it.
He was caught within a couple of weeks and sent to Her Majesty’s B&B.
So not only have I responded to these sort of calls whilst in uniform, I have also been the ‘victim’ of one of these ‘individuals’.
Thus, when I watched the video below, I felt an enormous sense of “I must share this with as many people as possible”.
I have ZERO compassion for people who break into other peoples properties.
‘Hate’ is a strong word.
But I guarantee you that the only people who stick up for the individuals who help themselves to other people property after gaining entry to their houses, are the “loved ones” of the wrong’uns and the wrong’uns themselves.
So anyway, this video is dedicated to anyone who has ever had their property and personal belongs meddled with by an unwelcome ‘guest’ who is not worthy of the oxygen which they inhale.
Of particular note in this video, is the elegant manner in which the officer carried out a ‘distraction’ wallop on the wrong’uns leg in order to catch him off-guard.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
