Jesus... I was thinking that it was a Klingon!

Anyway... we used to have police like that in the states.

Now he would get tazed and/or pepper sprayed... if he was lucky. An MRAP and a SWAT team would also be involved. Why? Because the police have them.

I am not defending police abuse.  But at the risk of being the party pooper, you two do realize that A. They have plenty of police abuse and corruption in Norway and B. the reason you don't hear about it is because you aren't in Norway, don't read Norwegian media, and the country is 5 million people.

Even if you had equal exposure rates to incidents in the U.S. and Norway, you would expect to see 62 stories about police in America farking up for every one you see from Norway.

We really need to step up public education in this country so people understand the basics of statistics.

Not a party pooper, you're just wrong.  It really isn't about population statistics at all.  It's about the culture of the police force and the character of the people on the job.

Here that guy would have been charged with two Assault on an officer, resisting arrest, obstruction, drunk and disorderly, battery, public intox, public disturbance, and anything else I haven't thought of and locked up for five years.

They took him to a drunk tank at a psych-hospital and told him to stop being so angry.

That isn't population statistics.

Citation Needed.

I live in Norway. I came from the US. The police here are NOTHING like the ones in the United States. At all. Yes, I've had contact with them. They thought I had a really cute hat on (a fleece hat with fox ears that is indeed rather cute) and came over to me for the sole purpose of asking me about it and giving me a thumbs up. I've seen several drunks being handled downtown and, without exception, the police have been restrained and courteous.

I'm sure there are asshole Norwegian cops. There are bound to be. But I have yet to see one and I've been here ten years.
 
2014-04-04 06:45:12 PM
American cop here.

So while we are more militarized than our brethren in other countries, I think that I'd handle this guy a lot like they did.  The once difference is that you notice the cut after he kicks them from the bench.  After that kick, the laughter would stop and we'd be kneeling on his legs to prevent kicking.  I'm guessing they did something similar, which is why you don't see it on the tape.

Also, drunks are funny.  And depending on where you are, being drunk in public isn't a crime.  Washington, DC for example.  The procedure for cops is actually to take drunk people home.  When I worked in NYC, that didn't happen.

I understand the hate, given the videos that people post here.  Have any of you done ridealongs?  I really suggest doing them.  It might provide another side of the coin.

Drunks are, more than anything else, unpredictable.

There are others however, who are downright evil and VERY violent. I've been hurt on 2 occasions dealing with this type of drunk. It's NOT funny. It's not something to be taken lightly. Someone who is that intoxicated becomes MY legal responsibility. Think about that for a minute. Some asshole decides to have 19 too many Long Island iced teas and I get called because said asshole is running into traffic. He's abusive, angry and violent and I'M the asshole because I have to use a modicum of force to contain him?

Keep up the good work, you guys.

I figure, like any other such group, police officers are mostly good, or at least have good intentions. But the assholes make the news for being major assholes. Once in a while you get a feel good above-and-beyond cop story, too. That's... probably not as common. (Do bad cop stories get more clicks?) Day-to-day beat cop stories, though? Eh, not so much.

I like the guys in this video though. Sometimes the best thing you can do is laugh, and their laughter, I think, did help diffuse the situation a little. Good call there.

No, not really. Although I'm sure we could find someone to complain about anything, as a rule no one thinks you're an asshole because you  have to use a modicum of force to contain a violent drunk. They think you're the asshole if *YOU* are abusive, violent, escalating the situation, using force out of proportion to what is necessary to control it. Or looking the other way when other cops are. Most people do not appreciate enough that cops constantly deal with the worst assholes, but at the same time that doesn't really excuse asshole cops.

2014-04-05 05:15:24 AM
I deal with kicking drunks out of my restaurant on a fairly regular basis.  A bit of humor and insistence on getting your way gently gets it done (much like these guys are doing.)  As soon as you try to force a drunk to do something a fight WILL erupt. It just doesn't work. US cops don't seem to understand this, force seems to be what they've been trained to use and it always provokes a violent response from the drunk.  It's an easy pattern to spot, I don't know why the cops apparently haven't figured it out.

I was 21 or 22 and on my way home from a nights drinking at a bowling ally, I knew I shouldn't have been driving, but I thought I was doing ok, staying on the back roads as not to encounter other drivers or such.. well.. I got pulled over by a police department that had a reputation for writing tickets for anything.. I knew I was busted so there was no reason to lie or anything..

after going through their field sobriety tests and blew a .11 on the meter, (Back then the limit was .10)  they had me get BACK in my car, drive it a mile or so to a stores parking lot, lock it up and they gave me a ride home.. AFTER stopping at Burger King and they bought me 2 hamburgers and a small coke.. that was the first and LAST time I ever drove drunk.. I took that encounter as my one and only "free pass" and over 26 years later still never drive after drinking..   oh, the reason they pulled me over? I had a back tail light out.. (which is what usually starts the entire ticket party)  No tickets, no jail.. these guys were great, and a couple weeks after getting pulled over I had a chance to talk to one of them and I asked why they didn't take me to jail and he said, "Because you were very polite, very coherent and very honest, so my partner and I thought you deserved a break, and since you weren't too far over the limit we felt it would be better to take you home than to jail.."

the only thing I have to say now is, I am Sooo glad they pulled me over when they did, my BAL was gonna go off the chart as I had polished off 4 pitchers of beer in under an hour and a half, so it didn't have time to register as yet.. "Whew" but I would NOT recommend testing this with the police today..  they would take your being polite as a sign of sarcasm, your honesty as a sign of trying to pull one over on them and you would get tazed and thrown in jail IF lucky..
 
2014-04-05 07:46:24 AM
That was funny.  But also heartwarming to see the compassion these officers had to the drunk.  Can you imagine how many times that drunk missed opportunities to get his head bashed in NYC?

Even if you are reading norwegian stuff in norway, you will barely come across a fraction of those you'd see in the U.S.  You understand this, correct?

My state has more people than your country, and any time something major happens in any of the 50 states with a serious abuse of power allegation, I see that as well.

So yes, the statistics matter, and they matter big time.

How about this: maybe the cops in norway are super awesome and those in america are all horrible.  Fine, great, whatever.  Do you, and others here, at least concede that if they WERE the same, you would likely encounter about 1/60th the number of articles, assuming the same thresh-hold was set for country-wide dissemination of a police abuse story?


I'm not claiming america couldn't be worse. I am saying that unless you or I are doing a detailed statistical analysis then going with our guts based off of media exposure is extremely misleading.

What does it take for an abusive cop story to go nationwide in the US? One of the stories I linked in my post was about a cop who kicked a police-dog in the head. Once. Here's the actual video. That's nationwide news here. What kind of coverage would that have in the US?

Neither. I just didn't read that far down. The doggie story was the first one I found and the other one has been a top story for some time now. Ignoring the other story I linked to is a biatcherry-picky of you, BTW.

Sure, a detailed statistical analysis would be helpful. So would accepting that Norway and US cops have completely different cultures.

A Defense Department program transfers military-grade weapons and vehicles to local law enforcement.

Meanwhile, norwegian cops don't carry guns at all.

Then there's the stop and frisk, which IMO is mandatory harassment. Yes, I know it's just NY. Then there's crap like this:

Cops on the beat are facing the same dangers on the streets as our brave soldiers do in war. That is why commanders and tactical trainers stress the fact that even on the most uneventful portion of your tour, you can be subjected to combat at a moment's notice.

But yes, some statistics would be interesting. I'm also curious about what google terms you used.

Yeah, there's a lot to be said for smiles and laughter as a way to ratcheting down tension. I like my country's RCMP, but they're not jolly like these two.
