Police Officer Talks Down Knife-Wielding Man And HUGS Him
June 21, 2017
The police officer in this security camera footage provides an exceptional example of how to calm a potentially violent situation.
A man armed with a knife enters the Huay Kwang police station in Thailand - but instead of being assaulted, he is met with a huge hug.
Officer Anirut sat calmly using very non-confrontational body language to calm the man down. He then convinced the man to hand over his knife.
When he does, the officer throws the knife away and approaches the assailant with his arms outstretched and embraces the man with a giant hug.
Anirut told Thai Visa News: "He used to be a musician but had been working as a security guard for three days and had not been paid. On top of this he had had his guitar stolen and it was all stressing him out.
"I heard him out and sympathized and said I had a guitar to give him, and suggested we go out for a meal together."
