Police in Thailand Laid Down Weapons and Joined with Protestors

Three years ago in Thailand, a shocking turn of events took place. Ordered to harass and block protestors , policemen instead yielded to the peaceful riot by laying down their barricades and helmets as a sign of solidarity

The gathering protestors explained that their goal is to destroy the political machine of former Prime Minister Thakskin Shinawatra, who is accused of widespread corruption and abuse of power. The Prime Minister, Yingluck Shinawatra, who is Thakskin’s sister, is seen as a puppet of her brother. In a move to topple the Shinawatra government, protestors planned on storming the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau. This act was devised and led by protest leader, Suthep Thaugsuban.

But what police did instead surprised many. Their lowering of arms and joining with protestors marked a turning point in the protests and a potential shift in power.

The following video shares the triumphant merging of both sides.

It is an inspirational act for law enforcement workers to take initiative and stand up for what is right. Who knows what changes could take place if other countries followed suit.

  1. Yeah I wish Police would just put down their guns and join the protesters. Then they would have been better able to defend themselves from the sniper in Dallas and would have been better able to defend the public from the rampaging mad man in Nice, France. You guys are a bunch of fucking jokers. Hey come see me at the Hate Convention you are organizing in Phoenix tonight. Anyone with an anonymous mask is getting their asses beaten you stupid fucks.

    • The only stupid fuck I see here is you! Way to go there mister wanna be hardcore faggot, misinterpreting noble police intentions against a crooked regime and twisting it to suit your own twisted views of how cops should always interact with protesters in general! An epic fail on your part if I’ve ever seen one, you dumb ass cunt whore fucker!

  2. Do you understand Thai poltics AT ALL? You know these guys were funded by interests looking to overthrow the government and install a military junta? The guy in charge of Thailand today would have people like you executed!
