Four Swedish cops were on vacation in the city of New York when they decided to attempt riding the subway. Suddenly, as they entered a subway car there witnessed a man who was assaulting a woman. No, they did not draw out their weapons of destruction, but they proceeded to subdue the homeless man who was being attacked. This incident raises some interesting questions. How come police from Sweden are being trained in the use of physical force to subdue potential criminals? NO, they did not have to shoot anyone. NO, they did not have to choke someone, they simply drew upon tested physical procedures that any police force in the world can –and should employ– when confronting a man who is a physical threat.
No use of firearms.
No choking the man until he was out of breath.
NO banging the head of the criminal into a wall.
Just good old fashioned physical control of a man who was seeking to be brutal.
Perhaps, the New York City Police Department can send its officers to Sweden to learn how to catch criminals without killing them!
