    Little bastard’s guilty too – crossed arms are a defensive challenge posture. He’s lucky he’s not white.

  • If you listen closely, you can hear the UK going down the crapper.

    • Alain

      I don’t disagree, but were it in Canada the liberals would be demanding a ruler registry and SCC would likely rule it an assault weapon.

        Give them an inch, they’ll take a foot.

        • AlanUK

          That’s 30.48 cm

  • just a thought

    I wonder what the outcome would have been if he’d been brandishing a make-believe torch, and yelling “Justice For Ferguson,” as he pretended to burn down a convenience store?

  • Jay Currie

    And people wonder why we home school.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Oh no, I don’t wonder at all!

    Dragons are a critically endangered species because of human encroachment (by primarily 9-year-old-boys) on their native habitat.
    I hope that throw the book at him!

    It is no coincidence that the great British (and anonymous) police author P.C. Copperfield (who has now moved to Canada) called his book “Wasting Police Time”.

    The perps have to suffer b/c it makes the educrats look very bad and that’s a mortal sin.. Awhile back a hs vice-principal was cashiered in Peel region b/c he wore a Mr.T. costume for Halloween to school. He darkened his skin somewhat and was told it was inappropriate to appear in blackface.So the schoolboard sent an apology letter home to parents about his sin(s) It seems the social justice warriors complained about it.

  • BillyHW

    The SJWs won’t stop until every last boy is pussified.

  • Were these rulers in fact two feet long samurai swords?

    Those aren’t safe for kids to play with.

  • eMan14

    I’d hate to think where I’d be if I grew up a kid in today’s world.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      It depends on your parents.

  • Minicapt

    Tuesday morning should be fun at school; this weekend I was showing my nephews how to wield a Pattern 1908 Cavalry Sabre.


  • Xavier

    If only he’d uttered the magic words while raising his sword, “Submit or die, kafir”.

  • vimy

    well perhaps they should take down that damn sigh then idiots

    • AlanUK

      I noticed that!

      St George is the patron saint of England although it is doubtful he ever set foot in England. Assuming he was real, he lived in the time of Emperor Diocletian and attained the rank of Colonel (or thereabouts) and converted to Christianity. Died as a martyr. (Diocletian had a weakness that way.)

      Probably the only thing we can be certain of is that he never fought or killed a dragon. It makes a great story – Princess to be sacrificed to the nasty dragon after it had eaten all the previous sacrificial animals: St George comes along and kills the dragon (sorry, WWF): refuses payment of a sack of gold and says it should be given to the poor.
