    If it avoids this kind of tragedy then I’m all for it. Good luck to them I say!

    • Hi Lance, I agree. I’m just wondering if this is the start of the various forces trying to outdo each other. Who can employ the most outlandish vehicle ?

      • I was a bit surprised by the choice of vehicle, to be honest. Surely a van would provide the necessary height to look down onto the drivers? And I also couldn’t help wondering how many officers were involved in the sting. I’d like to think it wasn’t a whole bus full!
