Cool Canadian cop defuses potential road rage fight

The aggressor has PINK short pants on?

My previous thoughts on PINK short pants will be re-evaluated…


#3

Yeah, that’s what I came to comment. Pretty belligerent for guy wearing hot pink shorts. And I think he’s wearing crocs.


#4

The “crocs” are the last straw for me, too…


#5

Man, I can’t wait for the next season of Trailer Park Boys.


#6

Just needed one of them to look up and yell ‘Fuck off, Lahey!’


#7

i’m not really getting how the cop was really the one diffusing the situation here.


#8

*defusing

But clearly, the ragers heard the officer. You can see pink-shorts point at him, and you can even faintly hear “listen to the officer,” spake by pink-shorts.


#9

doh, i always get those confused. : )

i guess he had an effect on the situation, but it seemed like they were both ready to go off in a huff anyway, whether or not the officer on the bridge yelled insults at them or not.


#10

BUT he didn’t shoot anyone! …oh Canadian cop, that makes more sense.


#11

Being Canada, it was probably something like this, “I told you to go first!”

“No way, eh, you were clearly ahead of me, I told you to go first.”

“No, I insisted that you take the spot ahead of me.”

“And while I appreciate the offer, I respectfully decline and insist you go ahead of me.”


#12

Yeah, I couldn’t really understand why the cop was just talking the whole time. Do Canadian cops not carry guns?


#13

Alternate sound track for the argument.


#14

Yes, of course, but it just goes to show that they don’t always need to use them. Good on the cop.


#15

And nobody got shot. Go figger.

It would have been a good way of finding out that American cops are now issued sniper rifles.


#18

They do, but rarely use them. My in-laws’ next-door neighbor was OPP for 25 years, and never once had to pull his gun (that was his claim, at least).


#19

“Had to” is an interesting way to put that.


#20

good use of spake.

the aggressor was just a bluffer, and likely the one at fault (if there was a rear-ender).
