Armed Police in my home town


Harold

Recommended Posts

The wife went into the town earlier and phoned me to say roads were blocked and there was a very large Police attendance in a particular area. Turns out a guy was going about with a knife and threatening to harm himself but obviously could have harmed others hence the armed officers. Train station closed and Morrisons supermarket was in lockdown. After about 4 hours they managed to get a hold of the guy and normality resumed. Young guy (21) with special needs who had been missing since yesterday.

Why does the headline state "Scots supermarket"

Because it happened outside a supermarket in Scotland and not everyone will know where Falkirk is.....that's my thinking.

Why can't they just say supermarket?

To give the reader an accurate location as per my previous reply.

You folk love to put Scottish in front of everything. Well scot or Scottish or Scotland.

It would just be like putting 'Yorkshire', Northumbrian etc etc....Remember England is far bigger with a much larger population than Scotland. We're not all 'See you Jimmy' arseholes you know.....:flashing-lol:
