When you're bad at being bad
What a polite anarchist, he was very careful to cause minimal collateral.
@Ahnald Schwarsanagga, that part where he drives through the open door, while barley touching it, had me laughing
@Duncan5769, it’s odd that he barley touched it, as barley has a high fibre content I expected more roughage.
needs the Benny hill music
@Waithuh, it did when it was originally uploaded. They change to a stupid song that doesn’t fit and call it there own? Ridiculous
In the US, the cops would have shown up and did a mag dump on this idiot.
Vehicles are absolutely considered as deadly weapons and endangerment of officers or civilians with a vehicle is absolutely grounds for lethal force in the US.
@Doctor Krieger, rightly so in most cases.
@Doctor Krieger, I agree with you in this situation, but what isnt grounds for lethal force nowadays?
@Beggar Mugger, badly cropped memes are still unfortunately not grounds for lethal force. I mean at least let the K-9 unit bite them.
@Doctor Krieger, In the civilized world no one get's killed in these situations.
@Awesome Naked Taco, and yet there's conclusive proof to the contrary in the civilized world of today.
@Awesome Naked Taco, 86 people in Nice, France would probably disagree.
@dusty44, I agree that cars can be lethal weapons, but as observed here the guy does not hurt anyone and clearly is simply trying to escape without causing harm to persons. I definitely think lethal force can and should be used in these situations often, but discretion is a valuable thing when handling the lives of others.
That said, the cops could have used firearms to take out the tires and the engine block and ended things with less property damage as they had plenty of opportunity. I get the feeling they weren't armed though.
I don't claim to know the best course of action but I really don't think that threatening people's lives is a good idea. If the driver thought he would be killed he would probably start running people over to escape with his life. Escalating force can backfire.
@Monad Vairocana, so at what point is it time to take action? After 1 injury maybe 2 how about a death? It’s not about how safe and careful they are at that minute it’s about the potential that at any second this could escalate. Prevention is better than cure.
@Monad Vairocana, anyway this is funny pics, enough debate.That crazy Russian b@stard was probably just trying to get to the duty free. When “ hey cousin let’s go bowling “ goes bad.
@dusty44, it's valuable to observe people, if you have reason to believe that they intend to hurt or kill someone then yes take action. Often times you might not have time and need to act fast. But in this particular scenario it can easily be observed that the guy doesn't want to hurt anyone. And disabling the vehicle is still taking action, killing someone isn't the only option.
If a split second decision needs to be made to protect others, shooting makes a lot of sense. This was not a split second decision though.
@Monad Vairocana, i think if he actually cared about people's safety he wouldn't have driven into a mall, or wherever that is. He was likely avoiding people and property as that would slow him down. You know, the whole "human speed bump" thing.
@Snarfel Burger, I don't think most people are so callous. That level of a lack of empathy is reserved for a very small portion of the population. The only time it really appears in normal people is in authoritarian environments like the Stanley Milgrim shock experiments or the Stanford Prison Experiment. Though I take your point.
@Monad Vairocana, Taking out the tires? Warning shots? Shotting people in the leg so they can't escape? No, not in America. Headshots and 14 bullets in the chest is the only way to resolve violence.
@Awesome Naked Taco, we'll see what you do when someone runs at you with a knife or points a gun at you. Police get seconds to make a decision and we get years to critique them.
@Awesome Naked Taco, and real life isn't movies. You don't "shoot people in the leg" or especially give "warning shots" that's how you end up dead.
@Snarfel Burger, well, funnily enough, that's how the danish police works, and it's worked 10x better than in America. You have to realize that most people aren't trying to kill someone. Yeah, we have terrorists that get shot and killed, we praise the police for doing so, but you try justifying how the police in MANY FVCKING CASES have shot and killed, emptied a magazine on someone 100% unarmed, innocent and completely incapable of hurting others. That's a result of the way American police are trained, that's a result of shooting first and thinking later and it's caused great grief and pain for thousands of families.
@Snarfel Burger, the American police even shoot people who are running away from them to death. It's insane, they're criminals and they don't even go to jail for it. People are legit scared of the police in America, in Denmark the police are well respected and enjoyed by everyone. They protect the civilians and have never shot innocent people.
EDIT: There have been a few suspicious cases where police have shot people who have threatened them with knives to which people have criticized the police for shooting and killing someone who is only armed with a knife. However, in all three cases, they have only shot one shot, which effectively stopped the threat, compared to the cases of American police doing headshots and straight up execuying people, I think it's pretty safe to say that there's something wrong
@Awesome Naked Taco, you're right, something is wrong but that doesn't automatically make it the police. We have more violence and guns then the Danish do, which is a price we pay for certain freedoms. I do realize most people aren't trying to kill someone and so do our police, that's why 99% of interactions with police do not end up with someone getting killed. Use common sense, think of how many contacts with police happen everyday all over the country, you're statistically more likely to be killed by the weather. Despite common misconceptions, our police are trained at deescalation, and they do not kill "unarmed fleeing people" those cases are an exception not the pandemic that the news would cause you to believe. You're acting like a huge portion of our country and getting your opinion of police from media and the ass end of cellphone videos. Statistics and common sense don't favor your side of the argument. And another thing, the fact that we've made police the scapegoats
@Awesome Naked Taco, for all of society has made America afraid of them. People are afraid of our police based off lies and its getting our police killed. Why don't we ever call for police officers to stop getting killed or have parades for them. They're more terrified than the poor innocent person with the knife.
And look up knife attacks, they're disgusting and terrifying. Sometimes deescalation and bean bag shotguns don't work and you have no choice, someone can close a gap with a knife very quickly.
@Snarfel Burger, I agree with you and I want to withdraw my generalizing comments. The thing is, though, that there are situations where police officers have acted like they're spies in a james bond movie with license to kill, which, I know they are very rare cases, should be taken more seriously than anything else. Even one cold-blooded murder is 100x too many. I am referring to the pest control guy who got executed in cold blood, unarmed, on the ground, with multiple shots fired. The police do, in my opinion, not have the priviledge of being above all danger. No policeman should have his murder justified just because they were in danger or potential danger or even those rare cases where they were suspecting that they were in danger. It is a huge problem, one which has many sides and one that has many possible solutions, but when the people in power do nothing to solve these problems, the masses will have to. I would any day take the life of an American police offer if he pulled a gun
@Awesome Naked Taco, on me. I value my life over the life of someone who is threatening me in a position of power because he's afraid of me. The biggest issue is that you can't defend yourself from a racist, angry, mentally ill or vengeful police officer. If he pulls a gun on you and you can see the fear or rage in his eyes you have no option but to beg for your life, which wont save you from someone mentally ill. What I'm getting at is that police should have the exact rights as everyone else, and that murder should not be justified by a situation escalating. The dashcamfootge from those situations i meantiones, clearly show how the victim had no power of their life. Im not saying police should be unarmed, just that the system allows for these kinds of horrible and outrageous policeofficers to get away with murder. I know very well that there are situations where coppers have to shoot to kill to save someones life, but the fact that there is even one victim of police murder is unjust.
@Awesome Naked Taco, I appreciate your honesty and definitely understand where you're coming from. Good police officers are the best among us, not many people would be willing to put themselves in harms way every single day for strangers who hate them, however, evil police are definitely the worst among us. One murder by a police officer is always too many, unfortunately that can never be completely prevented, they're humans too. And bad ones will always slip into the ranks or good ones may become bad over time. Fortunately they are weeded out like rats and held accountable for their crimes more often than you think. Most departments have zero tolerance for sort of dishonesty or bad character. A lot of the "murderer" cops we think should be in prison are still debatably innocent. They may have been found not guilty but that doesn't mean their lives aren't ruined, like Darren Wilson. If the pest control one you were talking about is the one where the guy was being told to crawl through
@Awesome Naked Taco, the hallway and was shot and killed, I agree, that one sure looked like murder.
The reason police officers seem to get away isn't because of a broken system. Its because most courts have a "good faith" policy, where they lean toward the police officer because they are brought to court on everything. Almost every ticket they right and call they receive, they're going to court. Its definitely not a fair life for them to live either. As far as the gun battle between an innocent man and a corrupt cop, unfortunately you'll have to make your decision and hope the courts make the right choice.
@Doctor Krieger, yes need more guns
Was that guy opening the door for the car to get through and then closed it to stop it?
I need more stuff like this with the same song playing!
It's the Twisted Metal version of the MW2 airport mission (he's also got a terrible score)
I appreciate the zoom in on the guy that slipped
OMG the elevator break music broke me I laughed to hard right there
He's my hero
I feel like yakety sax would be good here
Was hoping he would have gotten away
That driver gets a huge tip. He got me very close to my destination.
The anger that came with the GTA sound
Omg this looked just like a Benny Hill episode!
Very “keystone cops”
