Burglars (Terrrorists?) Steal Uniforms From Police Station In England

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Detectives said on Wednesday they were hunting for thieves who broke into one of their own police stations and stole their uniforms and radios.

The crooks burgled the police station in Uddingston, not far from Glasgow, in the early hours of Tuesday morning when the office was shut.

A police station should be impregnable, and at no time should it be unmanned. The audacity of the burglars is matched only by the incompetence of the police.

A spokeswoman tried to reassure the public by stating: At no time has the safety of the public or any officer been jeopardized as a result of this break-in. Baloney! The UK has a much more serious problem with terrorism that the United States, and the uniforms may well have been stolen by terrorists to be used for nefarious purposes.

The cops don`t seem to be too worried -- one wag (Lonestar) left this comment on the Yahoo page that carried the Reuters article: Not to worry, the donut supply is intact and untouched.
