Swedish Cops on Vacation in New York Just Showed Americans What REAL Policing Looks Like

New York, NY–  Four Swedish police officers vacationing in New York City were on the subway on Wednesday when a fight broke out.

The train operator asked if there were any police riding who could help with the situation.

The Scandinavian patrolmen were very soothing and non-aggressive as they de-escalated the situation instead of escalating it, the way we have seen so often from our own men and women in blue.

The officers were on their way to see a performance of Les Misérables when the train operator frantically asked for assistance. “Are there any police officers on the train?!” the men heard over the intercom.

“We thought maybe someone needed help,” Samuel Kvarzell, 25, a rookie with the Stockholm Police Department told the New York Post.

The Scandinavian patrolmen ran towards the front of the subway to help and encountered a brutal fight between two homeless men that had broken out.


One of the men was reportedly attacking the other, as the injured victim made very little effort to defend himself.

After separating the aggressor off of the victim, the officers kept the aggressor detained in an arm lock while attempting to calm him using non-threatening voices and a soothing hand on the back.

“Take it easy, just relax, everything is going to be okay,” one of the officers tells the detained man while he frantically screamed that he couldn’t breathe.

This seemed to calm him, and the officer asked if he was injured with a kind and gentle hand on his back. The officer seemed genuinely concerned about his well being.

There was no violence; there was no threat of violence, no cursing or racist remarks. The officers acted as professionals, even while off-duty and on vacation.

    Another look at what Bernie Sanders wants for the People. Social Democracies work very well. I have been to Sweden and Norway and have a lot of Family still there and their system of Government is far superior to what ours has devolved into.

    • Sanders ain’t the answer but good try.

        I don’t see any other Candidates that have answers for the problems of this Nation. Sanders does and he has the Senate Voting Record that shows he is serious and honest.

        • What are his answers? Free stuff isn’t the answer. Some things; legal pot, low incarceration rate, small guy issues are good, but he needs substance not rhetoric. He doesn’t vote for war, but votes for war funding. He supports leaving troops in Afghanistan, he supports forces in Syria.

            You sound like all the FOX Viewers Joe Corrao If you take the time to go to his website and actually read you will see how he plans to fund each of his solutions to major problems. He is thinking about the future and how we are going to leave our Grandkids, Sick and Stupid or Healthy and Intelligent. Having a Great Nation means the people are well off and we in the US are not compared to other Nations. His Platform makes sense and his Senate Voting Record proves it. Yes he Voted against going to War but has the intelligence to not desert our Troops by blocking funding for the materials they need to survive. Now explain how patriotic the GOP is when they have stopped every Bill that would benefit Veterans in the last 7 years.

          • How do we pay for his ideas?

          • the answer is debt and higher taxes and more big government…we need much less of all 3.

            You just don’t get it do you. We all contribute towards the Education and Health of our Young so that they can provide a good economy for us to retire in as well as something better than Polluted Air, Water and Land to live off of. Humans left to their own with out regulation is always destructive due to greed as we are seeing with the so called Trickle Down Economics right now.
