What made you want to become a policeman-officer?
– Danny Butterman
I don’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a police officer… apart from the summer of 1979 when I wanted to be Kermit the Frog. It all started with my Uncle Derek. He was a Sergeant in the Met. He bought me a police pedal car when I was five. I rode around in it every second I was awake – arresting kids twice my size for littering and spitting. I got beaten up a lot when I was young, but it didn’t stop me. I wanted to be like Uncle Derek.
– Nicholas Angel
He sounds like a good bloke.
– Danny Butterman
Actually, he was arrested for selling drugs to students.
– Nicholas Angel
What a cunt…
– Danny Butterman
Probably bought the pedal car with the proceeds. Needless to say, I never went near it again. I just let it rust. But I never lost the profound sense of right and wrong I felt at the wheel of that pedal car. I had to prove to myself that the Law could be proper and righteous and for the good of humankind. It was from that moment that I was destined to be a police officer.
– Nicholas Angel
Shame…
– Danny Butterman
How so?
– Nicholas Angel
I think you would have made a great Muppet…
