This is a video of how hero cops react to a mentally ill person brandishing a weapon.

In the United States, a whole bunch of cops would have filled this guy with holes, and shot a few bystanders to be sure. The cops here then would have beaten the bystanders because they were so stupid for getting shot. Then tase the wounded bystanders.

I was impressed at how relaxed the cops were. They weren’t swearing at bystanders. They were friendly with them while faced with this deranged nutjob.

Not like here, very different body language and attitude. Very admirable.

The cops were seriously brave. The guy in the blue shirt waving his jacket was an idiot.

One thing that struck me was how nice that guy with the black jacket was. He distracted the crazy guy for quite some time. Looks like he prevented the crazy guy from going after others by keeping him occupied.

You’re right, here and in the U.S. they would of shot him.

He might have been an undercover cop trying to keep the nutbar focused on him kind of like a matador waving his red mat at a bull so others would not get hurt.

Look at what happened to that kid on a streetcar in Toronto last summer. ‘Barney’ shot him six times and killed the kid. These cops in Columbia acted with much more intelligence.

That’s because the cops there aren’t hyped up on steroids and haven’t been trained to view the citizenry as the enemy.

In most Latin American countries, police are only permitted to respond with equal force, and this frequently leaves them at a disadvantage like this:

These cops were relaxed, friendly, concerned with EVERYBODY’s safety, and smart.

I think this should be a training video for every taser toting clown with a badge in Murika!

In the long term this police of force leads to fewer deaths and less violence. If you feel you can talk to cops, and they will not kill your relatives...

Don’t ever ever ever call the cops into your home when senile granny goes nuts unless you want to bury her.

Perhaps the US should send their police down to Columbia for training.

Better yet perhaps the City of Fullerton should hire its police from Columbia.

The responses to this story (and many, many similar ones over the past few years) should be a wake-up call to the “Fraternal Order Of Police” or whatever they call themselves.

They have a SERIOUS public relations problem - first of all, in how far too many police units relate to the public and secondly the attitude the public has toward them. Deeper still is the perception that many policemen & police departments don’t give a hoot as to how the public perceives them, “Just do what I say... NOW!”

We have far too many groups in power or “public service” who fail to exercise restraint or to deal with the lawbreakers & rogues within their ranks.

Congress
Lawyers
Police
Federal Bureaucrats

Did I miss anyone?

The stability and smooth functioning of a society depend on the Character, Competence and Integrity of these groups. Yes, none have ever been perfect, but there must be the perception that they are working for the good of society.

Traffic lights are a wonderful & necessary thing to the smooth, safe flow of vehicles in a modern city. People trust that when they get a “GREEN” the crossing traffic will have a “RED”. Sure there are idiots who run red lights, but the SYSTEM is trustworthy. Lights occasionally burn out and timers get stuck. But we drive around daily counting on traffic lights to do the right thing. If you have ever been in a 3rd world country where the traffic light do not work properly or at all, you have seen that people ignore them and “do their own thing”.

We are perilously close to the point where the police are perceived as a broken system and part of the problem, not just in by those living the ghetto but also by those in suburbia and in the shopping districts.

Get rid of 95% of the SWAT teams. Get the truly dangerous people put away and stop the revolving door. Get rid of the US against the world attitude in many police departments.

Duty, Honor and Integrity take precedence over loyalty directed at covering up the wrong doing of a fellow policeman.

/rant

“But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation, while it is practising iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candour, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world. Because we have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. “

“There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.”

John Adams

Just out of curiosity, how many Freepers even remember the name of that poor unarmed African-American dental hygienist who was gunned down by DC's Keystone Cops with a baby in the back seat because she drove a little too close to BO's palace?

Cops here deal with an entirely different type of people. They HAVE to be aggresive... even with bystanders. Bystanders here would cause more trouble than the perp if left uncontrolled.

This animosity you have for the police could probably be traced back to the 1960s when you called the cops “Pigs” and you called Vietnam Veterans “Baby Killers.”

In 2011 a 90 lb. woman named Fallon Frederick called Rogers AR police from a convenience store. After they arrived, she was cornered in the store and she had a knife and bolted toward the door. They put 3 slugs in her and she died instantly. Not one cop was charged with anything. Make of that what you will.

I never called the police anything in the 60s but “sir”. I had respect for law enforcement. I knew cops personally. Things have changed and my attitude has changed with it. Andy Taylor and Barney Fife have retired. They have been replaced with more hostile angry callous personnel.

Cops here don’t try to de escalate. Here a wolf pack of cops would have surrounded the nut job and each would have screamed an array of profanity and countervailing commands. Then opened fire killing the perp, a bystander or two and wounding a few cops.

That’s because, unlike many times in this country, the cops aren’t scared out of their individual and collective minds and can thus act rationally even when faced with a serious and imminent threat.

Really? You think it benefits the police to act like an invading army?

Ten years ago, this site was a lot more willing to give police the benefit of the doubt than they are today. I believed the police have earned the distrust of the citizens. The only thing I'm willing to call a cop about is to fill out paperwork. They are simply too dangerous to have around. I'll take care of my own life, liberty and property.

The post you responded to was long, thoughtful and well reasoned. You caused him of being a 60’s radical calling cops “baby killers”.

The poster in question was discussing the public relations nightmare cops have created for themselves then he followed up with the moral society warning given by our founding fathers. That’s why I asked the question.

. Tripped up once again by auto correct. When people get tripped up by auto correct they cause confusion. When they cause confusion mistakes are made by others. When enough mistakes are caused by others mass hysteria ensues. When mass hysteria ensues the National Guard is called out to quell the masses. DON'T cause the National Guard to be called out to quell the masses. Switch to Direct TV and quit using auto-correct.

Here in America?

The man would have been immediately shot dead. The entire area, for several blocks around, would have been put on ‘lockdown’, with everyone marched out at gunpoint, looking for more ‘dangerous weapons’ and a possible ‘second macheteman’. Democrats, in response to this incident, would have immediately gone on MSNBC calling for strict gun control. Major newspapers would find a way to blame Republicans. Pantsy Nelosi would have claimed that Obamacare needed to be expanded to include coverage against Machete strikes. John Boenher would have cried, then called for comprehensive amnesty.
