Meet PC Pam, the Jedi copApril 24th, 2009 - 6:18 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 24 (ANI): A Brit police officer has become the first Jedi cop to come forward and admit that she is a devotee of the Star Wars-inspired religion.
After 23 years of patrolling the mean streets of Glasgow, Pam Fleming is a beat officer, who has finally said, “I’m a Jedi and I’m proud.”
Light sabre in hand, the cop has also admitted to using Jedi mind tricks during interviews with suspects in ‘an effort to achieve the truth’.
However, talking to industry magazine Police Review, she has claimed of not using ‘The Force’ to influence what suspects say or do.
In the Star Wars, Jedi mind tricks are used by characters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker to ‘influence the minds of weak-minded sentient beings’ to get them to do what you want them to do.
PC Fleming said her faith helped her ‘fight crime and disorder on Glasgow’s streets’.
“For me, it is not a joke. I love the Star Wars films and the concept of being a Jedi,” The Sun quoted her as saying.
She added: “The faith is not divisive. It does not matter what your race, faith or sexual orientation is you can be one. It is all encompassing.”
“I have been a confirmed Jedi on force monitoring form for three years now.
“I like the principles such as inclusiveness and oneness - that we are all part of one plan.
“I have even started calling my probationer as a joke my Padawan (Jedi apprentice). Although I am not sure he likes that.” (ANI)
