    I sent my handy man (Edson) over to the beach to collect NSW for me. On his way back with a trolley with 3*25l drums, a Metro Police officer on a Bike stops Edson and asks him what he is doing with the water. Edson told him that it is for the tank. The police man then pulls out a knife and pokes 2 holes in 2 of the drums and said to him that he has no permission to collect water.
    What permission??????????
    I got hold of the Metro Police service in the Beachfront area and informed them about it, and the the officer I spoke to was rather shocked at what the officer had done. He said I should come in tomorrow and speak to the captain about this.
    I am so pissed as I have been collecting water for +- 15 years with no hassels now the Police are giving this ****!

    Give them gas Mek. I just went to Empangeni Police station to go pick up my Docket for the bakkie theft and took it to Richards Bay Branch myself, as I was still waiting for a case number- they never sent the docket to Richards Bay in over a week.... Hows that for service

    They are never there when crime takes place but have time to mess around. Im not letting this slip by. I will take Edson with me to identify the police responsible, I even feel like putting it in the paper.

    Thats Law enforcement in SA for u, easier to target law abiding ppl then go after scum (coz theyd probably hav to round up 3/4 of their corrupt dpmt first )

    It was probably a Leatherman. I've seen them carry these on their belts. Mekaeel, I'm with you man!! I would be acid if that happened to me!

    Go lay a charge of 'malicious damage to property' and then go to the news paper.

    What really makes me mad is, a few days ago, right in front of the building they tried stealing Scuba's car :p , where the hell were the cops at that time?
    I have seen most of these Metro guys carrying knives around.
    Shaun, to hell with the drums, it's about being 'just'. No he didnt get the number plate, but the cop I spoke to rekon Edson must point him out.

    Howzit Mekaeel!
    BTW: I too would go and lay an official complaint against the metro police officer. I would go RIGHT TO THE TOP, if you can....
    Perhaps try and get to you local councilman/woman - and tell them the story. Also tell them that you will be going to the press with the story. Hopefully something will come of this!

    Im going to go to Metro today and speak to these idiots about it. However all I can see is a huge laugh because its just drums. My main concern is, everytime I get NSW im going to have this problem.
