Need more of these types of cops.
How crazy would it have been if the cop just started stabbing him during the hug?
Pretty crazy. But not crazy enough to not cross anyone's mind.
There are a lot of officers like this, unfortunately the media doesn't always show these kind of encounters with law enforcement.
When I'm feeling stabby that is exactly what I need too. Aww..
I thought the QTE triangle and squares were going to pop up god of war style
Only if the knife got pass the skull
Yeah... that'd totally be crazy.. ha.
I can see it play out like the typical betrayal scene. Slow pan out from a face shot to the knife in his gut with some witty one-liner
I was hoping the cop would stab him
This situation could play out differently so easily
Thanks again uncle iroh!
Every situation can play out differently. The best situation is the one to go for.
Is there a large Muslim population in Thailand? Stupid of me, but I always pictured it being like 95% Therevada Buddhist
All you need, is love
Warms the heart. Wow. The sweetest thing.
I'm sure his smile is just as disarming.
From wikipedia so bear that in mind but their 2015 census apparently has it at 94.50% Buddhist and 4.29% Muslim.
My father in law talked down an AWOL soldier who was holed up in a farmer's barn with one of his guns. Its not easy, but it's worth it.
Doubt anyone has this clip with Audio? Would be super interested to hear what he said.
Aww! But lemme pat you down before I let go ...
Did no one else notice the magician in the a white shirt on the left?
"If you don't put the knife down, we're going to shoot"
Also crossed my mind when I saw his arm swing
Training, right there, lots of training and a huge heart that wants to help people.
Doesn't change the fact that we need more, loads more
Arkansas crazy. That’s how crazy.
Guys dont get confused, Thailand not US
I misread the title and thought he disarmed him with a sword. I don't know if I'm disappointed or not.
I glad people like this are cops
Why is there a mirror there?
*shoots anyway* "oh wait it was a cell phone not a knife oh well at least I'm safe.'
This is asia
You literally found it through "the media".
Not to diminish what the cop did at all since it was great, but it also helps when the "criminal" isn't some psycho or some scumbag.
Ding. With how many cops there are out there, if even 10% of them were as bad as some people pretend "most cops are", there literally /1
wouldn't be enough news channels to cover all the stories about them. /2
HEY YOU CAN HAVE SOUND NOW DUDE ISN'T THAT SICK AF
Now imagine him entering an USA police station like this.
Wearing boxes of doughnuts would guarantee a similar outcome.
Hence no stabby stabby or shooty shooty
always a mirror my vitvot
If I was ever a cop, I'd just pass out snickers and tell them to chill out, cause you're not you when you're hungry.
Theres more than some folks give credit for, but yeah no matter how many we have we can always use more
this ^ mfers see shit on CNN and say "you'll never see this in the media"
Did it say diffuses? I bet it said diffuses.
Verbal judo at it's best.
There are WAY more Muslims in South East Asia than there is in the middle east, surprisingly enough
*Puts knife down* "I said don't move!!!"
Judge: "It was believed that the suspect had another gun hidden in his rectum so the shooting is justified"
From how the dude was holding the knife he clearly didn't know what the hell he was doing.
He also checked his back waistband while hugging.
No civilians in danger, suspect more incompetent than aggressive. No immediate threat. Clear to engage in conversation.
"Doesn't always" work on that reading comprehension, boyo
It's usually mirrors. :P
You need more of this type of criminal. Not a threat to officers or civilians, he basically showed up just to be talked down.
Ah, makes sense now.
Et tu, magistratus?
That's a standard procedure
Seeing things like this, i wonder what kind of terrible situations drive people to do this.. You have psychos, but also desperate people.
Well, there is also the fact that the trigger happy officers actions seem to be condoned and defended as justified reaction to "threat".
Why does she tilt her head so much?
It's easy to think this way when it isn't your life on the line. Applaud the ones brave enough to do it but don't judge the ones who aren't.
He stole my knife! It's in his back.
fark... I just sprayed water everywhere laughing. Jerk! +1
Get some nuts
He had no money. He was a musician but his guitar got stolen, then started a new job, but didnt get paid for a while. Cop offered him (1/2)
his own guitar and asked him if he could treat him to a meal (2/2)
he should be shot for his stupidity
Two different worlds. The inside and the outside. Lol the internet is so weird....
Speech Level 100
So much better than the usual American solution of believing the guy would look better with 65 holes in him.
This. This cop is a good cop, but also a lucky cop. Or skilled enough to recognize the man in front of him wasnt a totally bad man either.
"Hey it says gullible on the ceiling"
The cop had a gun though, he just didn't have to pull it. Cops don't take on knives without having a firearm.
He did that so smooth as well. This is great to see, the guy clearly wasn't well so needs help.
Shit. I just remembered how much I wanted/want to fuck the shit out of her.
I glad too
nobody would expect that. nor the Spanish inquisition
Me glad also
Fucking Conway Stern
Everyone so big.
Common for muslim men to hug each other they say. No homo.
Clever. Removed weapon, bear hugged him to restrain and minimize threat, and gave a pat down for other weapons. He's done this before.
He did that because he worked 3 days without pay? I go 14 days between pays and don't usually come THIS close to losing mys hit.
I'm a cop I'm not getting that close to someone with a knife
I wanna know the story behind this
wow, my brain is not working.. I read it as "with sword" and was very confused about the outcome..
Not the same person?
German dub of one episode of Voyager mixed up "defuse/diffuse explosive situations" - some people get paid to much for their work ...
the one good cop gets fired
I kinda expected it
nope, this one is from the US
Well, sure: Indonesia and Malaysia. I looked it up on Wikipedia after posting and it suggests somewhere around 5% of Thais are Muslim.
So my assumption was nearly correct
gyu wasnt black, so .... is it too old fashined to keep making these jokes?
"The Lannisters send their regards"
Clearly this didnt happen in the US
I definitely agree
I love how they're punishing him for not taking a life but cops who torture & murder people on camera get rewarded with paid vacations.
Why the shit should they show cops doing their jobs & obeying the law?
Cop at the end, "The Lannisters send their regards..."
Is she some famous US celebrity from a 90s sitcom?
Big softie <3
That's can't be in the US...
am i the only one around here that thinks the cop made a poor decision, putting himself and others at risk of being stabbed?
It’s the fluid in her brain shifting.
As an american im more surprised by this then a stabbing
he literally used police training and got fired for it, the other 2 cops that showed up later on shot him as soon as they got out their car
Top 10 Anime Betrayals
That’s why the stabbing didn’t happen
With a warm island song?
Officer Pagan Min?
*Hugs*........*stab stab stab*
I'd watch that tv show
US cops cannot afford to be non-confrontational. They must expect a firearms being pulled on them at any second and thus treat any citizen->
<-like a hostile combatant, acting more like occupying soldiers than police. That's the price you pay for the right to bear arms, suck it up
of all the things to make me cry on imgur today, this was the one.
Imagine if he threw the knife and accidentally hit someone....
Why. Stab. Did. Stab. You. Stab. Do. Stab. It.
Iirc guy was just trying to survive. He wasn't trying to be asshole
Crazy enough for the Lannisters to send their regards.
The Brady bunch, man.
The sad part is, once this is over everyone will go back to not caring about him
