    What a numpty ... Kudos to the British police for not crushing him like an over-ripe mango for being so rude.

    Why's he a numpty, he's just messing about, with a bright orange and green nerf gun...... Its filmed in and around london, I bet he's from an area where they have everyday dealings with the police, you get used to what you can/can't say/do when you've dealt with them a lot.

    It just goes to show, because a policeman has a gun doesn't mean they have to use it.

    I'd imagine he'd be dead in the states.

    That's so damning to American enforcement culture.

    You and I both know the NYPD would have shot and killed his ass, or beat the living **** out of him and arrested him for assaulting and officer with a deadly weapon.

    I know it's meant to be a joke, but really this vid is pretty profound commentary on how horrible policing and public service is in the USA.

    Sad really.

    During the prohibition era, when too much vodka and oj gave nasty hangovers, heartburn and gut rot. ;)


    Kudos to the cops, they see all kinds and never really know who they are going to deal with it, but it sounds like they kept a level head.

    One point about this thread, which makes the thread title a bit misleading is he's not really daring "cops"/police to shoot him, as he's running up to them with a bright orange, very recognisable nerf guns, and most of the "cops"/police he's bothering don't carry guns.

    Police that carry guns in the UK are very recognisable, in london anyway, because they dont wear hi vis

    Imagine if it were in Mexico or anywhere in the Middle East or in North Korea... the kid would be dead and... no publicity would follow!:eek:

    American police overreact, maybe more than in the UK, but our crime rates and population(not to mention our cultures) differ greatly.

    The guy obviously knows where he his and what he can get away with.
