Shaking all over.

Post by Ragnar » Sat Oct 03, 2009 2:43 pm

WHAT for an evening.

I was out for a drink and meal with my Collegues in Savigny Platz, Berlin.

A Bit boring, it was one of these "Men only" nights. Tja....TOLL! (Sarcasm alert! (Toll =fantastic, or similar))

So I go home via Zoo U-Bahn. (Tube. Zoo station.)

As I come down the escelator, I see a gang og about 20 "youths" being talked to by a policeman and a Police Woman.

As I am half way along the platform I see that one of these....Hmmm..."People" put their arm around the neck of the Woman Cop.

Na ja. You all know me by now??

From a report of a collegue that I did not know was there (He left 2 hours earlier and went to another pub but we ended up going home at the same time).

"All I heard was a ROAR like that from a wounded bear. And the voice war roaring OOOODDDDDIIINNNN! THEN I saw you with your walking stick (The end is nearly 1 kilo), waving it around like it was a sword RUNNING at this group.

As you reached them, you hit the one who had grabbed the policewoman, between the eyes with the end of the stick, the policeman had by this time drawn his gun and aimed at YOUR target (The one attacking the P.W) But was basically ME as well!

YOU shouted "POLIZEI, POLIZEI!" (Police, police") and he held his hands up and put the gun behind his back. (Normal procedure her for "O.K, Seen it! You are safe!")

At this point two people tried to grab you (me). You caught one between the legs with yout boot that makes me think this guy is NEVER going to see his grand children, then you backheeled the other in away that makes me think similar about HIS family situation as well".

Now.

I do NOT remember shouting "OOOODDDIIINNN!" But it is nice to know it comes automatically.

ESPECIALLY when at the end of the charge , you end up with a 9mm SIG Sauer in the face.

Sorry, I do not know where this is going, but I am still pumped with adrenelin like it is going out of fashion.

Oh. And the Police have said it is really STRANGE how video recordings can get lost sometimes. \:D/

LOL

Only you Ragnar, Only you...

Good on you though, both for calling on Odin, and for the protection of your friends on the force.

So, does this mean Odin gets a bit more than half a can of beer this time? #-o

Never met them before, that was the problem. They were from Bayern by the accents. "Bundespolizei". A bit like the State troopers in the U.S, that can be posted ANY where in the country as and when needed. Yesterday was a National holiday celebrating the re-unification. So the Berlin Police got reenforcements from all over the place.

No chance. It's about time HE bought a round. I am fed up with going for a night out and having to pay for all his beer! :lol: :lol:

Seriously, you BET he does.

Chhers! Adrenalin rush is over now, but did not get much sleep due to it.

I have done some research and found that since the Long distance trains, cross border ones, stopped having Zoo as a part of their timetable, they removed, or better said, closed down the Bundespolizei Station house that was there.

From that day on crime rates and general idiocy, such as the attack on the poloice woman, robberys, just beating on people for a "laugh", etc, have increased a hundred fold in and around the station.

I have not been there so late SINCE they stopped the long distance trains. And I will not be going back in a hurry either, unless I am on duty.

The place is bloody MAD!!! In fact as a guage of "Madness", Mc Donalds closed their shop there due to attacks on staff, and Burger King were considering the same, but chose to employ four ARMED security guards instead!!!

Aye. The main stations CAN be a bit hairy. Friedrich Straße, Potsdamer Platz, Hauptbahnhof are O.K. But then they all have Bundespolizei, Railway security, City police, Military police (My hmm, "normal" job. Although I am now reserve, we still get to do weekends once a month or so)Big transport points for armed forces), you name it. I have seen where in those stations, late at night, the security out numbers the public.

Basically though, Berlin is "safe as houses" in the West and around the busy parts. Ku'damm, etc. It must also be remembered that we are talking about a day/night/weekend, where literaly a couple of MILLION strangers are in town for the 3rd Oktober celebrations. Similar to "Love Parade", Cristopher Street day parade, and New years eve (Silvester).

THEN you get your MAD people.

Other than that...na just the normal precautions that any one from London, New York, Toronto, etc would tell you about.

Max. I THINK I have sent you a P.M. HOPEFULLY, but things seem to have changed. ( :-? ).

If you do not get it, can you let me know please?

Thanks. ;)

That makes sense, I guess big cities tend to be a bit crazy anyway, never mind with an alcohol-saturated Oktoberfest. I'll still give my friend a lecture on personal safety though. I received the P.M. but it won't let me reply to you. Thank you for your message :-)

O.K, THAT'S fixed. There appear to have been some changes since my absence, and it reset all my "Accept P.M's?" and other things to "No". #-o

Lets us do, or DOES to us.

I just know the last time I had those kind of shakes, it was due to 12 cups of Lisas Esspresso in an hour. :lol:

The time before was after a motorcycle escort for a kidney transport right accross central London at 7:30 on a Monday morning!
