Police Officer Hit By Van

Wednesday June 19 2013

Officer hit by van Officer hit by van

A POLICE officer was allegedly run over by a man in Athersley.

At approximately 7.35pm on June 18, officers were in the Athersley North area of Barnsley.

While there, they approached two male occupants in a white van. The driver of the van attempted to drive away and allegedly hit one of the officers in the process.

The van was found abandoned later and the two men, a 19-year-old and 21-year-old, were arrested and remain in police custody.

The officer was taken to hospital and discharged last night with bruising to the chest and hip area.

LOL This made my day

Yes, because it's fun to run people over. I mean, they're only the police aren't they? Soulless people without family that deserve to die.

If you seriously think that it's funny then I despair for society when people like you exist that offer nothing to benefit it.

Yes. I think. Sorry, I'm having trouble trying to comprehend the bullshit you've just typed and so I don't know what the right answer should be.

Isn't it funny that all the people applauding these scum bags are are illiterate?

Reply Posted by Dave on Wednesday June 19 2013 at 20:07
It's relative. The more stupid and more moronic someone appears to be (and that can be judged by the drivel they type) then the less law abiding they tend to be.

I didn't realise that your occupation affected you being a human! Some people need to sort their lives out - these 2 young men AND anyone who thinks it was funny or a good idea!! they'd be up in arms if it was a youngster who'd ran over the road without looking or even if the officer was a close relative! Absolutely ridiculous.

Its only a pig who cares they are evil scum

Reply Posted by Wtf on Wednesday June 19 2013 at 20:29
Most police are as corrupt as the government that employs them, they work to targets just like a salesman..so they do anything to get a "catch" all of them lie and cheat to trip up mostly innocent people to get promotions...this particular officer must have thought his uniform was a impenetrable shield " bruises to the chest" what was the retard doing? Standing there shouting "stop in the name of the law!!" Why didn't he move?

Reply Posted by Geoff on Thursday June 20 2013 at 00:22
They ought to start thanking the police. For without them keeping law and order, the decent people would arm themselves and remove such scum from society.

Some of the comments on here are disgusting - but then these people have probably never done a days work in their sad pathetic lives!!!
Get a job you moronic waste of space!!

Reply Posted by Frankie on Thursday June 20 2013 at 09:11
Wow no wonder Barnsley has such a poor reputation with the comments from you twats. Ps while you're sponging from tax payers smoking joints why don't you try redoing your GCSE English again?

Them police officers r doing a good job so why should scum bags do a thing like this

Reply Posted by Sandra on Thursday June 20 2013 at 09:12
As the wife of a long serving dedicated police officer ( who is a DS in child protection) it does my heart good to read all your messages of support for our boys n girls in blue. The negative comments are obviously posted by people who have been thwarted in their crimes by the police. It's quite funny actually.

Reply Posted by Louisa on Thursday June 20 2013 at 09:13
What a set of arseholes!! You are no doubt sat at home chuckling with your low life scrotum mates - lets hope there's never a time when you need them because I'm sure they don't judge. Just because you are wanker doesn't mean they won't help!

Reply Posted by guesty mcguest on Thursday June 20 2013 at 09:18
Lets all laugh at the pig eh?

I bet the pig isn;t a miserable scummy bastard who feels like the country owes him a living, I bet he doesn't live in a shithole house that he doesn't clean and keep maintained, I bet he can read and write, I bet he wants to do something to make this place better rather than worse and I bet if he saw some little scummy chav ran over in the street he would go and help them out regardless of the fact they hate him because of his uniform.

Reply Posted by omg on Thursday June 20 2013 at 09:48
my god its disgraceful that lowlife scum are still allowed to walk the streets!! no doubt the pc /laptop you put your sick stupid comment on is stolen and i hope the scum that ran him over go down for years not months, if that was my child they sold drugs to or my van they had stole i would kick sh*t out of the pair of them, they are nothing put benefit cheating low life crack heads

Reply Posted by kirsty on Thursday June 20 2013 at 09:51
Some ppl make me sick this police officer has a family!!! Can call them pigs and whatever but theyd be the first people you ring if you got broken into or some scum was dealing drugs to your kids!!!!! Grow up and get a life

Reply Posted by Tarn lad on Thursday June 20 2013 at 10:26
The evil scum are the ones who think a police officer deserves to be hurt, those that dislike the police are always those who have been caught breaking the law and have no respect for anyone or anything. I find it amusing those who dislike the police can't spell and have bad grammar, probably drunk, doped up or inbred. If it was up to me all druggies and thieves would be rounded up and shot. Society would be a lot better place for decent working people and we wouldn't need police.

Is'nt it strange how wedge and the other giggling scumbags went suddenly quite when people did'nt support their opinion.

Reply Posted by Marie on Thursday June 20 2013 at 11:34
Aww, you have to feel a little bit sorry for the likes of Wedge and Wft, it can't be easy being an imbecile. I hope the police officer has a speedy recovery - some of us appreciate what you do.

Reply Posted by . on Thursday June 20 2013 at 11:53
I wish a speedy recovery to the officer involved and am pleased to hear 2 more scumbags r now off the streets! I can fully understand people's hatred towards the police force unfortunately aiming it at the officers on the beat is unjust they r just pawns in a corrupt establishment! I'm sure when they enter the force its with all best intentions of upholding the law unfortunately the laws are made by the worst kind of criminals!! And they need locking up with the rest of the scumbags! Just my opinion bare in mind.

Let me just say we was there watchin. He did not hit her badly or run over her. She tried to take his keys from in the van which he then drove off. He clipped her with his wing mirror thats all. Paramedics came looked at her and went there was nothing wrong with her at all. She didnt go to hospital she got back in the CID car. What a load of bull shit. And there was no reason for police to stop them they were only talkin to mates

Reply Posted by Atheist on Thursday June 20 2013 at 15:33
How did you know there was no reason for them to be stopped? Just because it appears to you that they were "only talking to mates" does not mean they hadn't done anything wrong. Innocent people don't usually drive off if the police ask to speak to them.

Reply Posted by me on Thursday June 20 2013 at 20:00
well iam glad some one knows the truth police r shady just like anyone else they gain a bounus for arrests even when they lie in court everyone thinks that they would never do anything like that but they do.they once arrested me for drunk and dissorderly n i had not even had a drink.when i got back to station they would not let me see the police doctor to prove i had not had any alcohol and your meant to have rights to see the doctor.then the two officers lied in court under oath and i got a very big fine for no other reason that the police lying.thats the great police for you.rant over.

Leonard, from your illiterate and highly offensive language your are the type of low life scumbag that is bringing this town to its knees. God help us when people like you are allowed to bread !!! You are a shining example to us all. NOT

Reply Posted by Swifty on Thursday June 20 2013 at 17:47
Do you not wonder why companies and employers are not investing in towns like Barnsley and Athersley. There are a lot of hard working honest people in Athersley unfortunately the scutter generations have been allowed to breed for so long that the nice folk are a minority.

Reply Posted by stevo on Thursday June 20 2013 at 18:23
Sick world we live in when people take pleasure out of someone being run over.

How would you feel if it had been your child?

Yes thought so, takes it to a whole different light doesn't it.


Reply Posted by MCP on Thursday June 20 2013 at 21:52
Police officers don't get any bonuses for anything. They get their basic wage and any over time they work, regardless of how many arrests or fines or whatever they get. Maybe the reason you had to pay a fine was because you're ignorant, clearly have no idea what you're talking about and probably made an a*se out of yourself by spouting the same nonsense in Court...just an idea.

Reply Posted by mr right on Friday June 21 2013 at 15:38
hahahahaha well that's 10 points ,, on his licence shame XD he should get a bonus and be given a free run at the poor police man who is probably corrupt like most other's with in the force more than likely he jumped out for an excuse to give the guy a ticket

this is incredible, emergency services ridiculed my small minded drugged up retards who have probably been arrested once or twice for breaking the law,you give Barnsley a bad name and need deporting to the north sea without a life jacket!!
