That's a cop?

Where's his body armor, his billy club, helmet, shield, taser, pistol, tear gas launcher and assault rifle?

The Troubles occurred in the UK, the video is from the Republic of Ireland I think.

The Troubles happened in the Republic as well. All those dead bodies berried by the provos in the South as well as arms caches and safe houses.

Silly cop, the proper method is to run up behind the clearly guilty person, whack over the head with your club and then handcuff them. Then you question him, if he acts up at all you hit him again before realizing you have the wrong guy. If he files a complaint later you claim you thought he was potentially dangerous as he could have flashed you and due to your homophobia that could have caused you severe physiological damage.

Yes, it's recorded in Temple Bar in Dublin, so the guy in the outfit is probably over from the UK for a stag weekend.

It was fun to hear the dialogue...

"A wee baldy half-incher"  LOL, that was not included in the sub-titles.  UK snark is the best!

Oof, I'm an eejit.  I thought it was filmed in Northern Ireland.

To be fair, a lot of American's would treat you the same way just as long as you're white.

As an aside, I couldn't help but notice how the cop had his hand on the guys elbow for the interaction. That touch was a thing a bouncer (and kickboxing instructor) I worked with showed me years ago - if you've got your hand there, you basically have full control if things go south - you'll have lots of advance warning if they try taking a swing, and can respond as needed.

Sure.  Guy reminded me of some American dinosaur cops.  Not the shiatty models, just the people that had been dealing with a beat since 19farktheknowswhen.  They're not interested in a fight, they flat out love it when they can just talk to you and get it sorted - less paperwork and hassle all around.  But if you're going to be stupid, they're all set up to have your ass on the floor and in cuffs before you can say, "Da fu..?"  NOT to strangle your ass, NOT to beat the shiat out of you - just to get you cuffed and incapable of causing more ruckus before stuff gets stupid and there's even MORE paperwork to do.

Not all Irish cops are like that though, he's in Temple Bar, which is the part of Dublin tourists get drunk in, so they're mostly harmless and out for a bit of fun. I'd say that Garda was put there because of his temperament and personality. He probably has decades of experience dealing with drunks, and doesn't feel he has anything to prove (and doesn't like paperwork).

In the rougher parts of town you'd find much tougher Gardaí, who aren't quite as amiable.I'm not saying that's a bad thing, by the way, they do a great job.

Oh ye gods no - they can't all be like that - takes a reasonably compliant population and a serious knowledge of the area.  Riding herd on drunk party people is not dealing with some bastard shanking people for their wallets.  Thing is, more and more police agencies (in the world, not just the U.S.) seem to be losing that distinction, and treating anyone that doesn't scan as "immediately completely harmless and a member of the local dominant culture" as a knife-wielding psycho.  It's nice to see that not everywhere has gone down that drain.

Unfortunately, more and more departments are going with rotating people all over the damn place every 10 minutes so there's no way to build up that knowledge, and the only options are playing Officer Stickupthearse.or Constable Psychotic.  A large chunk of proper policework is knowing when to be nice, and when to break heads.  (Yes, both can sometimes be necessary, unpleasant at the latter may be - sometimes you do get a genuine rotten dangerous bastard.)  Modern policing is discarding that for "Always break heads, fark 'em they're all crims anyway kick 'em again!"

/treat everyone like the enemy, and you will indeed have everyone as your enemy right quick
