The cops can't abide anyone who flouts their authority. There are some reasonable arguments for this position, despite it resulting in occasional danger to the general public. From a cop's point of view, it can become difficult to draw the line on where this policy ought to be excepted.

General piece of advice: This may be a nice safe country, but that doesn't mean you should give up situational awareness, even when on a walk. Earbuds are fun but if you can't hear what's around you you're asking to be targeted, by a cop or a criminal or just an accident.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
