Eight Swedish cops last week stormed a couple's home in Uddevalla after a neighbour reported five people beating up a woman. It was a false alarm - they were just playing Kinect Sports. One Robert Johansson, 25, was actually throwing punches in a virtual boxing match with his buddies and told Swedish-language tabloid Aftonbladet …
No need for regret.
"A spokesman for Gothenburg plod regretted the misunderstanding..."
What misunderstanding? Genuinely concerned (albeit misinformed) phone call from a neighbour about a 5 on 1 kicking. Plod leap into action and race round there immediately.
Being a Brit, I'm impressed they showed up at all. And on the same day!? WOW!
Fuck it! I'm moving the family to Gothenburgh.
In this country plod would only be there quickly if someone had reported a presence of a gun.
Mind you they would probably sit outside the house for 4 hours once they did arrive.
"In this country plod would only be there quickly if someone had reported a presence of a gun."
Hardly, some bloke found a gun in the street and the plod told him to bring it to the station.
Presumably so they could charge him with possession.
On the other hand if someone had complained that he was called names then the plod would have been straight round.
somethings fishy here...
6 Player boxing? or maybe this was the much anticipated Kinect Twister - 5 blokes, one girl, bottle of baby oil.....................
The _ONLY_ game to play with 'friends'.
I second the move to Sweden
Not only are the police force prompt, but the houses have rooms big enought to play multiplayer Kinect games with out taking a sledge hammer to dividing walls.
Sweden also has lovely lakes.
Tho a moose once bit my sister...
...have been sacked.
Felt awkward when asked who was beaten.
So, the girl won then.
What, the girl whipped their wimpy arses?
Now that would be embarrassing.
