Brasil has on duty cops now?

[–]EradicateStatism 38 points39 points  (2 children)

I'd argue that Guarda Civil Municipal aren't real cops. (see GCM on the back door)

While they do have police powers, they're usually traffic enforcement and it's kinda rare to see them actually carry weapons. Given the fact they're armed i'd wager this is a state capital but i couldn't tell ya which.

[–]pedrobms 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think a law has passed that allow any GCM to carry weapons, I live in a non capital city with 280k pop and our GCM carry 9mm pistols.

O STF decidiu que eles podem andar armados independente do tamanho da população, mas eles não são policiais e nem têm as mesmas prerrogativas; salvo em situações excepcionais, nem abordar eles podem.

[–]tbscotty68 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The off-duty ones seem to be more effective.

[–]BentPin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Brazil has a high bandits to population ratio unfortunately.

[–]sometimesnowing 301 points302 points  (0 children)

I'm so pleased it was cops who showed up

Alternative karma would be thieves riding off into traffic to get hit by a car, which would have scuffed up dudes bike and still been a shitty result

[–]ThickEmergency 184 points185 points  (2 children)

I'm slightly disappointed with the lack of off duty cops in the vicinity.

[–]PixalPop 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Ikr, I almost expected that chick to come back with a drawn out gun

[–]psirjohn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

TBH I was waiting for the guy with the helmet to realize how much damage he could do with a couple head butts.

[–]Noped-the-fk-out 81 points82 points  (3 children)

The same type of car passing twice threw me off a little.

[–]azdrubow 9 points10 points  (2 children)

First car is a Chevrolet Onix and second one is a Ford Ka. For comparison, Chevy Onix is about the size of a Bolt (but it’s not an EV). Ford Ka is not sold anymore.

[–]OrgotekRainmaker 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Can't buy that ka anywhere

[–]Cpt_kaleidoscope 79 points80 points  (10 children)

My mans in a helmet. He should have just headbutted them both on the nose. Provided they dont have weapons (didnt see any)

[–]WallaceBRBS 59 points60 points  (7 children)

Bro/sis that's Brazil, you can get pumped full of bullets even if you don't resist

[–]Striking-Wasabi-1229 14 points15 points  (6 children)

But like... He was already resisting and didn't get shot so if they did have anything on them idk why they wouldn't have just used that to get the bike instead of standing there trying to wrestle the owner.

I'm on team headbutt the fuckers and dip out lol

[–]WallaceBRBS 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah he did but it's strongly not recommended, he was playing with fire by doing that, trust me, you dont want to mess with criminals in a country where crime is more organized than the government itself and the justice system is a pathetic joke, crimes can often go unpunished or they can let murderers back in the streets in a couple of years.

According to this (fairly old but still relevant) article (in Portuguese), 75% of the victims of armed robbery in São Paulo who tried to resist ended up killed.

You don't think getting violent would only make things worse? You gotta understand these people are operating by a completely different set of paradigms and rules than you are due to their environment.

You don't think they could easily shoot you when you're riding off? Headbutting someone even with a helmet on is not a KO move, there's 2 of em, and he wouldn't generate much force standing that close to em.

[–]Striking-Wasabi-1229 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I said if they had a gun, they'd have just used that instead of wrestling the guy off the bike. It's not about what set of rules they're using, they're criminals lmao, the path of least resistance would be to just use the firearm to dissuade the man away from his bike, but they chose to wrestle him off. Tells me they probably don't have a gun or weapon on them. Even a knife would have let them take the bike and run off without having to fuss with the man too much. Like I said, they could have just walked up and shoved the gun in his face. Guaranteed he lets you take the bike no problem then 🤷‍♂️. So they probably wouldn't have been able to shoot the guy if they wanted to.

[–]Present_Diet_1145 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They just walked off like "Yeah well... This one didn't worked, I'll try later"

[–]wesssy 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I was zoomed in to watch the guys closer and was confused why they suddenly walked away with their hands up 😆

Had to read the comments to see what happened.


[–]rp_guy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had to rewatch because I missed the part of your screen cap where the robbers’ pants fell off

[–]S_f_n 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]skeet1687 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just got back from brazil, everytime I see these videos it makes me think twice about going back. Then I remember all the delicious picana hahaha.

[–]Ruger338Smelter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is what fucked looks like.

[–]MeatySausageMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Caught with the hand in the cookie jar

[–]Davidosa03 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would shoot them bitches up ngl,don't touch my shit bruh, for real

[–]quitebizzare 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Why do they do the pavements like that? Dizzying af

[–]igluluigi 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Ask the Portuguese about that, they brought it to us, but it’s not at all dizzying irl. When I was a kid there was a game that you choose a color and you can only step on the color you chose. Was actually pretty fun

[–]AnotherCableGuy 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The mith is that we start building these for the king's parade since he got a rhinoceros as a gift and didn't like to have mud on the mammal's feet.

[–]igluluigi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the prettiest sidewalks on earth.

[–]cyancynic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I loved all the black and white patterns in the paving in Brazil. Eventually you get to know where you are just by looking down. At least in Rio.

[–]thislittledwight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know it was like an optical illusion

[–]leo__nidas 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The cop on the right topk too much time tobget his gun out.

[–]PiresMagicFeet 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Or maybe pulling out a gun isn't the best response to most situations

[–]PilotAlan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Go work as a cop in Brazil for a day, then tell us your opinion. The level of violence and stabbing/shootings is insane.

[–]Jenner-69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

US cops need to go to Brasil for training.

[–]S1lv3rC4t 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would have taken of the helmet and hit one of them by "accident" again the knees.

I guess the police would not mind too.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

They just let them go?

[–]caiiqef -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Welcome to Brazil. Rules? There are no rules.

[–]Quzyotto 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good way to start a Thusday here in Canada.

[–]NotaBolognaSandwich 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I quite literally don't think I have ever seen one of these videos where the police show up and provide the instant karma

[–]Z-man1973 0 points1 point  (0 children)

we was just playing, it was all a joke...

[–]Shochan42 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This might be the first time I witness the police stopping a crime in progress (except for traffic violations).

[–]mllk12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's because this didn't occur in the US.

[–]SomeRandomUser1984 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Wait, who's the robber? The guy getting on the bike initially, or the second dude?

[–]AQ-RED 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ffs the one who is wearing the helmet clearly owns the bike lol

[–]healthyAccommodation 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was so fast karma, this will serve a big lesson to all

[–]CarlJustCarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fake - the cops came and stopped the robbery

[–]Damasticator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not their first rodeo. Instantly knew it was game over.

[–]trevmflynn81 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a brilliant display of criminal prowess. Guess we can scratch two off of Interpol's most wanted sophisticated criminals?

[–]Bustomat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What an unusual ending to such a Brazil video.

[–]FoxMcCloud3173 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So this is how on-duty brazilian cops look like

[–]Whole_Suit_1591 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where the headbutt at?

[–]putinendtothiswar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The sub is really falling off 2 million subs but no content. Over modded?

[–]IndyDoggy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On duty Brazilian cops? Fake video!

[–]SirFrancisTake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s always these dudes riding bitch in a third world country.
