A video showing British police officers brawling with a group of unruly men shows how violent attacks can be stopped without gunfire or even serious injury.
The video shows officers arguing with a group of increasingly aggressive men during a traffic stop in London, reported the Independent.
The men surround the officers as they try to remove two friends from police custody, and then a fight breaks out.
One officer is pulled to the ground during the fracas, and police use chemical irritant spray to subdue the men until backup arrives.
Online commenters at Reddit noticed how the officers were able to take the assailants into custody without shooting or seriously harming anyone.
“Imagine how differently this would have been if this happened in America,” said one Reddit user.
Another commenter pointed out that police even warned the men they would use chemical irritant despite the lengthy scuffle.
“Top of Form British police officers making American police officers look unprofessional, as usual – after 5 minutes of scuffle, the police STILL warns the guy ‘One more step and I will spray you.’ Nobody got seriously hurt that day,” the Reddit user said.
Two of the police constables were treated for minor injuries, and four of the men were arrested on a variety of charges, including assault on police.

In the United States police kill people on average, every 8 hours. Very few of these deaths are ever ruled unjustified, even when police are caught on video killing unarmed people who pose absolutely no threat.
The escalation of deadly force by American police is unprecedented when compared to the rest of the first world.
So far this month, American police have killed 66 people.
By contrast, China, whose population is 4 and 1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in all of 2014.
More people were killed by American police in just the last thirty days than were killed in 2015 in Germany, England, China, Canada, France, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, and Iceland — combined.
According to the United Kingdom’s statistics on the police use of firearms, English cops discharged their weapons a total of 80 times since the turn of the millennium.
In stark contrast to UK cops, however, In the month of June alone, American cops sent 100 people to an early grave.
If this doesn’t highlight a serious problem with American police, then nothing will.
How many mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters would still have their families if American police acted more like British police?
For the naysayers who think that this case is an isolated act of heroism, think again. The lack of deadly force is so common by police in European countries that it’s not only been documented multiple times, but it’s been caught on film multiple times.
There are five videos of police handling violent, armed people, none of which were shot at all, let alone shot to death.
This excessive violence has gotten so bad that American police chiefs are being sent to Scotland to learn steps to change this deadly paradigm. A former hostage negotiator with the Boston police department, Chuck Wexler, brought a team of cops across the pond in a last stitch effort to curb killer cops, and his story was documented by Sky News.
According to Sky News:
As the two sets of police officers met, Mr Wexler described how if confronted by a suspect holding a rock an American officer would pull out his gun.
“You’re going to kill someone for throwing a rock. That’s what you’re gonna do,” said Mr Wexler.
“How would society over here think about you shooting someone with a rock? They would not accept it.”
The senior American officers, from forces such as the NYPD and LAPD, watched demonstrations at Police Scotland training centres.
Sky News cameras joined them as they went out on patrol in Glasgow, and watched as unarmed police dealt with a variety of potentially violent situations.
What the report also found is that American police have a knack for verbally escalating situations too.
Sergeant Jim Young trains hundreds of Scottish police recruits every year.
“The American style of policing, it’s very authoritative,” he said.
“There’s a difference of going in, straight up at this level, whereby you’re ordering people, you’re shouting at them. You can’t go anywhere after that.
“But if you start down low you can adjust your communications to suit.”
Basically, what this experience is showing is that American police are aggressive both verbally and physically — and it’s deadly.
Below is this eye-opening video of American cops learning to be less violent. This training cannot happen soon enough, as America is already on track to kill over 1,000 citizens in 2016.
Via Raw Story and The Free Thought Project. People really need to start opening their eyes to what is going on in uStates, and by that, I mostly mean that white people need to get woke, and get woke fast. Way too many people are already dead at the hands of police who are clearly out of control.
