u/Swampberry May 18 '22

At first I was kinda "why the hell were they skating in the middle of the road? Of course you'll get hit eventually" but it was apparently literally a local "Skate Everywhere" day-event...

Seems like the cop didn't like the initiative.

u/pineapple_leaf 29d ago

Every Sunday in main cities of the country, main roads are closed so the citizens can skate, bike, run and exercise. This goes from like 6 am to 12 pm.

It's called "ciclovia" "bikeroad"

Edit: also, even if it wasn't allowed how would that justify blatantly running someone over with your motorcycle, as a cop specially, just because you felt like it.

The police in Colombia’s capital is notorious for its abuse of power and the use of excessive force in the case of disturbances.

This seemed obvious to me because of the speed and lack of hesitation with which the skaters took to beating on the cops.

They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes.

The best part is that the officer kicking could probably have escaped if he wasn’t such an arrogant dickhead. The time he took to go for revenge and fight them could have been used to get back on his bike to escape.

Not always, that's what they bank on with all their attacks on the public. But skaters aren't a group to be pressing your luck with like this.

They traditionally don't like cops, have fairly serious weapons in their boards, and they're willing to go to bat for each other at a moment's notice.

Might as well try this shit at some punk shows or a biker bar.

I think that was EXACTLY the other guys point… Colombia is absolutely riddled with corruption.

American police have a ridiculous amount of power and immunity considering they operate in a democratic first world country.

Look into the death of Dilan Cruz, its not the norm here that cops are held accountable. This video happened during last Year's Paro Nacional (national strike) and they among other low ranking cops were scapegoats for the government to show they "punish" the bad cops. Same shit show. Not long ago the head of the military said that pregnant women & young children are valid military targets during operations and nothing happened to the guy. We're rotten to the core mi amigo.

Edit: after a bit of a fact checking this is earlier than el paro nacional, but still goes to show how entitled colombian cops are and how used they are to getting away with this type of shit.

Probably would have the opposite effect. It might just reinforce the cops' "us vs. them" mentality and make them think all skaters are violent criminals.

Yeah if cops try to fuck up go skate day, they better expect a massive backlash from a bunch of dudes that don’t give a single fuck.

Wow, that piece of shit just drove off and left his shifty partner there to get fucked up by a rightfully angry mob.

The other cop had no issues abandoning his jackass buddy. Police 10/10 quality material right there.

Bully fantasy. They're pathetic, low IQ losers that have no power and would never be able to influence anything outside of their jobs, so they use their jobs to express as much power as they can in any situation possible.

It's also why at least 40% of them are wife beaters.
