VIDEO: Thai police expertly take down armed suspect at hospital in Bangkok

Good job but whilst they were at the hospital it was a shame the facilities were not used on the looney🤔

Thammasat Hospital does not have a Nutcracker Suite, no facilities for the deranged.

I am very surprised that one of the cops at least did not draw his gun. Maybe a prudent move given the situation?

Well done.

 

I just loved the way that, halfway through, the lady in the black and white dress walked straight through the middle of the fight without taking a blind bit of notice!

I agree.  Looks staged.

 

Little urgency to arrive on scene.  They walked.

The one BiB in the background did all the work.. the other one did jack and at one point left his partner exposed as the so called deranged person walked over to him.  Neither of these guys appeared to by any sort of great threat.

Of course they walked. The last thing anyone should do when dealing with unstable armed people is make them panic.

 

You do know that there are countries where the end of every incident involving the police doesn't involve a body bag?

Police did a shit job,endangered themselves and others around too.....the guys were obviously drugged out of there heads and you cant have a drug fueled idiot(s) with a massive knife running around,he swiped a bit at the cop already,the cop was defending himself with his baton..huh!!....if that guy decided to really attack which he could of then the 2 cops would be dead and then members of the public after ,they were lucky he was not intent on murder but they didnt know that so was stupid the way they responded..the knife guy should have been told straight away to drop his weapon at gunpoint and shot in the body if didnt listen. He even went up to the cops partner at one stage very closely and could of stabbed him very easily......the cops were not trained properly and played it by ear which by a bit of luck worked out this time..i certainly wouldnt rely on luck in that situation....why take the guy down with no knife first leaving the man with a knife to still be acting nuts......they should have focused on him/his knife hand and possibly whack his knife hand with there sticks but i would have preferably had my gun pointed at him at first sight of a 12 inch bladed knife and the man jumping around acting nuts with it on arrival at  the scene. They were lucky this time!!!

This vid should be a training VID on what NOT to do when confronted by a lunatic with a large knife

Did anybody see any details of what the man was upset about?

Yes, that's exactly what I thought. 

 

It's some sort of training exercise.

roadrunner, sounds about right to me.

 

I'll lean towards this being staged. 1) The camera angles and shooting looks professional which is not so likely in a live situation 2) Hospital staff go about their business or just sit there looking as if they could care less. 3) guy with knife in foreground looks like Mun the actor (well that's not a good reason 🙂

 

Now if this was the ussa there would have been a dozen squad cars arriving, tasers, two dozen guns drawn, a few police dogs, and people fleeing. Guy would have ended up tased, shot, and face planted into the floor. So imho even if a staged situation it represented a cool headed approach. If real, very cool albeit dangerous with a crazy guy with a large knife.

Did anybody notice how calm the nurses in the background are.... And people just walking around not worrying about a man with a big knife..... I must be staged
