A wry view of life for the world-weary

Red Faces Of The Week (7)

handcuffs

I may have got it wrong but surely when you put a pair of handcuffs on someone you expect them not to be able to get them off. Conversely, though you rather expect the person who has applied the handcuffs to be able to release the victim easily.

It was the latter aspect of the process that proved a tad troublesome for the boys in blue at an officer safety training day held at Mounthooly Way in Aberdeen last Saturday. Handcuffs were applied to an officer during the course of a training exercise but try as they may, they wouldn’t come off.

The only thing to do was to ring the local pole sliders and members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue service attended with a pair of bolt cutters.

Good to know there is a Plan B but the incident caused crimson visages amongst the top brass of the old Bill.
