    Let's not beat about the bush, this man needs to have a bounty posted on him - wanted dead or alive. Of course that is not the politically-correct thing to do in this day and age.

    Hi Ron,What about all the cases of mistaken identity ?
    Dead or Alive! you want to hope you dont resemble this bloke in any shape or form!
    A silly, silly comment.
    Do the sensible thing people, report sightings to the police.
    Best wishes to the officer and his family.
