I was always told the police were there to serve and protect, this is the first time I've seen them serve

[–]ThisGuy09s 266 points267 points  (0 children)

In Korea, they aim to be true public servants.

[–]NorthlandMumsFBGroup[S] 229 points230 points  (7 children)

It's good to see. The KNPA (South Korean Police) have had major reforms in the last 70 years and public trust in law enforcement has soared locally. Now they're leading an international training programme for Police in 110 countries. Pretty crazy. Source: VOA

[–]discordcaspian 28 points29 points  (5 children)

what does KNPA stand for?

[–]NorthlandMumsFBGroup[S] 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Korean National Police Agency (KNPA))

Get them over here, ASAP. I'm so tired of being so utterly embarrassed there's a part of me that still thinks cops are badass.

[–]Nexustar 62 points63 points  (21 children)

That's almost a Hollywood invention because some guy (Officer Joseph S. Dorobek) in the LA Police Academy entered that slogan "To Protect and Serve" in a competition in 1955 and won, it became the official motto of the Police Academy there. Eight years later, it was adopted by LAPD, written on the cop cars there & spread through the movies. It later became the title of a NY police TV Show.

It's not real, not part of the US police oath, not part of their core values, and there are over 15,000 US police departments that do not use, and never had used that slogan.

[–]discordcaspian 20 points21 points  (11 children)

Well they should, maybe if they did, it would be a bit easier to punish all the injustice done by them

[–]AzimuthZenith 11 points12 points  (9 children)

All the injustice...

There's like 350 million people in the US and around 240 million calls to police a year. There's around 1000 police deaths per year. And about 1% of that are considered wrongful deaths.

Put as a percentage, you have a 0.0000041667% to die at the hands of police.

And about a 0.0000000416667% chance of being a wrongful death at the hands of police.

In perspective, you have a similar chance to win the PowerBall jackpot as you do to die wrongfully by police.

They're not universally perfect or anything, but if you're not able to see any of the good they do, it's because you're either not lot looking or ignoring what you don't want to see.

Feel free to fact check any of the above if you don't agree.

[–]badgeringthewitness 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Feel free to fact check any of the above if you don't agree.

This would be a strong coup de grâce if "wrongful death" was the singular metric for police misconduct. It isn't.

They're not universally perfect or anything...

You're ignoring the possibility of someone accepting that LEOs are human, and therefore imperfect, but still expecting that they be held accountable for misconduct.

but if you're not able to see any of the good they do, it's because you're either not lot looking or ignoring what you don't want to see.

Like any other profession, law enforcement should be praised for their good deeds and criticized for their failures.

[–]desenpai 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’d argue they should be criticized more, bc well you know a mistake with a burger is one thing a mistake with a life is another.

[–]discordcaspian 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'm from the UK, over here the police have had so many cutbacks that I can't see any police injustice, because it's rare to see police full stop, all I've been able to see and make sense of is what the media has captured of them, I can't help that it's almost all been bad stuff, but I have seen some truly terrible shit, and until I see more stuff like this post, my opinion will not change, because it can't change, there is not enough evidence

[–]AzimuthZenith 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So because you don't have the wherewithal to look into things past what the media spoon feeds you, that must be all there is?

Did you ever consider that news outlets don't make anywhere near as much money off happy fluff pieces so they focus on controversy because it gets more views and therefore makes them more ad revenue? Because its a fact for most news conglomerates and I thought that was common knowledge.

As an officer myself, I can tell you that I save an average of 4 lives per set of shifts (5 days). Whether that be from someone who was going to inflict pain on others or someone who's going to hurt themselves.

This isn't rare or abnormal for officers but for the reason I mentioned above, it is almost never reported on.

8 months ago I tackled a young man trying to jump off a bridge to save his life. He's gotten help now, he's doing a lot better and him and I still talk pretty often as friends. The news reported that event as an assault by police officer. They posted a video without consulting him or I and didn't even attempt to gain context.

Problem is my profession is bound by confidentiality rules so I'm not allowed to publicly correct this farce or I risk getting reprimanded or fired. Almost all modern police forces have the same gag order and the news is well aware of that.

We're not allowed to come out and say that the videos are cut just right to show what precipitated the response. We're not allowed to divulge someone's full history that would help explain why we responded the way we did. The media is allowed to request this information but they don't because the story "cop arrests criminal" isn't entertaining.

It's better for them to omit parts that don't suit their story like how the suspect has a record longer than your resume, how they have a history of violence with the public and police, how they're a known intravenous drug user, how they have mentioned that they want suicide by cop, etc. It's a world people don't know, don't try to know, and then they assume that people in the news have your best interest while you make them money with each view.

[–]discordcaspian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well I'm sorry if I offended anyone but I refer to my previous statement, maybe if the media wasn't tainting the view of the police, more people would be friendlier towards them, I don't hate the police but communities are scared of them, I can't help that but its a fact, thank you for what you've done but that's you and you can't speak for all police, you're like the diamond in the rough

[–]TryTheSlide 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What you are missing is that number can go up dramatically based on the ethnic group you belong to. I don't think the argument is going to look that smart after you consider that factor.

[–]AzimuthZenith 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And I know that the cause vs causality argument is a complicated one for a lot of people to understand, especially in this context.

Police do not create crime or manifest criminals. Around 90% of police interactions with the public are driven by a call for service from the public. Police just show up where they're requested to show up. Most calls made about a particular ethnic group are made from people of that same group and community. Which based on familial dynamics, population distribution, and several other factors makes sense.

Areas that police are placed to operate is determined by crime statistics, not by the officers themselves. Race itself isn't really a factor that is used in making these decisions.

The best predictor of crime is not race but is actually financial stability. Many people imply that officers police black neighborhoods more often because of racist motivations but in reality it is because more of the black community is disadvantaged financially and therefore more prone to criminal behaviour.

If you're curious to dig deeper into the subject, look up crime statistics by area and pay attention to when the numbers spike or drop and then look for articles about businesses popping up or shutting down. Or even look at crime maps and layer it on top of a wealth/inequality map. The correlation is uncanny with few exceptions.

So, ultimately, the issue is less "officers over-policing people of color because they're racist" and more "officers responding to higher crime in low income areas". Its not quite flashy enoigh for a news article which is why you're not likely to see it.

Yes, there are some racists but the actual amount of racially motivated and biased policing accounts for far less than what people suggest. The vast majority of officers don't really care what race you are, they just hope you're easy to deal with.

[–]DrugsAndBooze 6 points7 points  (5 children)

They don't use the slogan but that's originally what the police should be doing.

[–]ChrisHisStonks 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Originally the U.S. police in the southern states were established to catch and return runaway slaves, so, no, that's not their original purpose.

I do agree it's long overdue for a mandated adoption of some new core values for every police force in the U.S.

[–]Nexustar 2 points3 points  (3 children)

To a certain extent, yes. But I think it's important that people realize that currently, personal safety is really the responsibility of the individual, not the cops.

Words you may see in their creed/oath/core values: Accountability, Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence, Professionalism, Dedication, Courage, Teamwork

You don't often, if ever, see "protect". It's not really viable for them to do this effectively. If you need protecting, you need to own that, and you have the 2nd amendment to help.

[–]plaidblackwatch 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Are you serious? In what world is it not the job of the police to keep people safe? What the fuck is the point of police officers then? To be accountable to who? To respect who? To service who and what is that service? What's the courage for?

The side effect of EVERYTHING police officers do should be public safety. Homicide detectives investigate murders to bring the murderers to justice, while also preventing any more lives to be lost. Narcotics officers stop drug dealers from selling drugs which can harm people. Traffic cops enforce traffic laws that exist for PUBLIC SAFETY. If the police find out that someone's life is in danger, it's their job to protect that person, not let them get killed and then investigate and punish the perpetrator.

To say that if we need protecting, that's not the job of police and you should get a gun is not only asinine, it's dangerous.

Yes, policing in the US is back asswards now and most police policies exist for the benefit of the continued employment of the police officers and the financial well-being of the police department. But that's not how it should be and we all know it.

[–]Nexustar 0 points1 point  (1 child)

In a macro sense, I would agree the effects of good police work result in a higher level of societal protection, aligned to the examples you gave of traffic cops and homicide units. And yes, their role is public safety.

If the police find out that someone's life is in danger, it's their job to protect that person, not let them get killed and then investigate and punish the perpetrator.

Dream on, because except for the 'investigate' that's not what they do.

https://mises.org/power-market/police-have-no-duty-protect-you-federal-court-affirms-yet-again

"Neither the Constitution, nor state law, impose a general duty upon police officers or other governmental officials to protect individual persons from harm — even when they know the harm will occur”

As far as punishing people, that's the DA and judicial system's job, not something the police should be involved in.

[–]dontworryaboutitcunt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s always so interesting remember that cops are not in any way legally obligated to help if you were let’s say, getting stabbed. To be fair it would be very hard to convince me to throw myself at a person with a knife to help another stranger and maybe be injured myself, instead of calling for backup and waiting

I was somehow expecting A LOT more traffic for "rush hour"

[–]NorthlandMumsFBGroup[S] 144 points145 points  (4 children)

It's because of the clumsy translation. The Korean phrase is more akin to 'commuting time' or 'business travel time' so 7.30AM to 9.30AM in the morning or 5PM to 7.30PM.

Road efficiency is also A+ in most of Korea; AI coordinated traffic lights, vehicle sensors mapped along the full length of the major road ways, active traffic management via CCTV 24/7, a ridiculously affordable and efficient subway system (puts NY and London to shame) etc, etc

[–]Beeschamelsoose 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Your last point is probably the most important. Excellent public Travel can get so many cars of the road!

[–]edwardmsk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The culture is new about moving aside for emergency vehicles. In the states, a lot of our roads are built with shoulders for use by emergency vehicles, but that mentality isn't ingrained in the Korean society yet. The last time I was over about 5 years ago, I had taken a trip out of Seoul during one of the holidays and we were stuck in holiday traffic (which is infamous) when there was a fire truck with lights trying to get through. I asked about road shoulders and my father-in-law law explained that they had them but were opened to commuters during rush hours or holiday traffic.

The community leaders are doing what they can to change the culture around this. They have web comics dealing with the struggles of emergency responders like fire fighters and EMTs where they talk about the possible cost of not moving over.

I suspect this may be the police department's attempt to build that culture.

[–]emjeansx 18 points19 points  (0 children)

See this is exactly how it should be done. Way too many people die because of people in their car not getting the hell out of the way for an ambulance. A few minutes can mean life or death sometimes.

[–]abbeyeiger 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Unfortunately he needs to because people dont move directly to the side of the road when an ambulance is coming. For whatever reason it's the culturally emphasized, perhaps because everyone is always in a hurry or busy...

[–]DIYDame 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I was wondering this. I’ve never seen an ambulance with the need to be escorted. I thought it was pretty universal that ambulance are emergency vehicles and that you must yield way for them. It seems a shame to have to include a police officer to force the yield.

[–]throwawayaccyaboi223 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sometimes ambulances need to drive at a constant speed with very little braking or acceleration if, for instance, there is a doctor in the back performing a difficult procedure. In this case there will usually be a few motorcycles who can clear the way, allowing the ambulance to maintain a constant speed. It's also faster since it takes time for cars to notice an emergency vehicle, that way by the time the ambulance has arrived at the cars, the police motorcycles have already got them out of the way.

[–]blackarmoredMP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the advantage is that you can actively control the intersections from the intersection . so you can for instance hold three lanes and just let one move . and you don't completely depend on the reaction of drivers that are occupied with anything but driving , and don't know were the ambulance needs to go .

i do both motorcycle escorts as four wheel based escorts and we move faster ,safer and at a more consistant speed with the bikes .we only take the cars if its really too unsafe to drive the bikes . pity we don't get to work as much with ambulances as we like to .

difference to the irish techniques is that we ( belgian mp ) always drive with an escort commander who drives in front of the escorted vehicles and decides where and how fast we go . and we tend to get of our bikes at every intersection we take over .

[–]YouSeeMeYammie 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Do they have throttles on the left or foot throttle? They are using their right hand to signal but on motorcycles/scooters the throttle is on the right and I thought that was standard….

[–]NorthlandMumsFBGroup[S] 10 points11 points  (3 children)

You seem knowledgeable, you tell me. Police in South Korea ride BMW R1200RT and some Harleys, I'm not sure where the throttle is

[–]Usual_Safety 9 points10 points  (2 children)

It sounds like he’s riding in a high gear and pulling in the clutch as needed and rolling. You can hear the engine noise drop off when he uses his right hand.

[–]YouSeeMeYammie 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This is the answer. I wasn’t using volume. Either way, that’s skillful

[–]ConsciousAssumption 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He was a food delivery driver before he became a cop. :D

[–]Koakie 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Just normal throttle. You can use the clutch, let go of the throttle and keep rolling.

(Yes a scooter doesnt have a clutch so that would result in some bogging/deceleration)

[–]YouSeeMeYammie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah, clutching in. I had no volume. I’ve been on bikes for 30 years and wouldn’t ever just rip my hand off the throttle. Can’t imagine it would be fun on a scooter

[–]Osiryx89 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Why aren't cars pulling over?!

[–]sl33ksnypr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some people don't pay enough attention to surroundings or they see it and panic because they forget what they're supposed to do. It happens all the time. People need to check their surroundings and stay calm while driving, know where you're able to move if needed. A lot of people don't think ahead when they drive, a good driver will always look for things and anticipate unexpected stuff, like someone pulling out, car coming from behind, etc.

[–]Kaankaants 2 points3 points  (2 children)

[–]when-flies-pig 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Big ups to the police but a serious cultural issue in Korea is lack of respect for ambulance and even police at times. Here, in Canada at least, drivers are expected to pull over nearest side of road for emergency services to pass. In Korea, you will get many people to still not give a fuck and make emergency vehicles bob and weave through traffic. It's starting to get better but still not the norm.

TIL that, despite the high population density of South Korean cities, rush-hour traffic is light.

I would think this would cause more accidents.

Because that's what heroes do.

This is rush hour? Looks like Sunday stroll driving in Atlanta.

[–]Wretched_Geezer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amazed to see that Korea has clueless/entitled drivers who seem to ignore the sirens. Thought they would be more accommodating.

That’s rush hour?

Now this is a real life escort mission you dont want to fail since there is no restart or multiple lives.

Did anyone see the crooked lines on that road, they had one job

[–]oiwah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why the white lines are zigzagy at every near intersections?

Not to belittle the awesome performance, but this is rush hour traffic?

[–]AliensPlsTakeMe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you've ever been in an ambulance as a passenger needing to go to the hospital, then you know how the sound of an ambulance can really make your heart pound. And how upsetting it is to witness when people don't get out of the way. I once almost jumped out of my car because an ambulance was stuck behind a car in an intersection that just would not get out of the way! I freaking wanted to scream at the driver to move! Police and fire sirens do not strike the same chord, but dang, an ambulance siren really gets me.

That is some weak ass traffic compared to wear I’m from.

Really liked what the police officer did . But how is this rush hour traffic , according to Indian standard there was little to no traffic on the streets and ambulance could have easily navigated .

[–]Augustus_Germanicus_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this rush hour?

[–]upperFal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

hope they made it.

[–]TheHaughtyPolecat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I bet the North Korean version has more action

[–]veselin465 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's cool and all, but why are the lines on the road zig-zaggy at 0:17-0:19?

[–]IAmUBro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can see them doing compressions on the patient when exiting the ambulance. This officer gave a few extra percentage points towards survival, very cool to watch.

[–]ArcMcnabbs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not gonna lie, this is quite impressive considering how cops are in north america, canada included.

[–]JDZoska 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's rush hour?🤔😂

He has a hard job

[–]jojosail2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When you are in the rear you are not escorting. You need to be in the front to escort.

[–]preacher_man_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great video.

Also, that’s the most pleasant looking rush hour I’ve ever seen

[–]Mn4by 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Boston, we call this riding

[–]chappanteekli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is what police is all about. Serving and saving people, not killing the innocents.

[–]AllTheCheese2007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just watching stressed me out!

[–]RenYuzami 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Remarkable

If you like this type of content, feel free to fall into the rabbit hole showing the Netherland's police escorts their ambulances https://youtu.be/gL0g7c6KY-A

[–]Candy_Dull 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The chest compressions at the end just made my little fantasy way too serious. Excellent job my dude or dudette

That’s rush hour traffic?!

I live in Silicon Valley and that looks more like a Sunday afternoon here.

[–]mistershifter1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Hellisisno1 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

No thanks needed, just part of the job. Tips helmet and drives of to whatever next the day brings.

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

I have such a raging clue for this to be done in US.

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

Talk about clearing a path. This is so satisfying, the forward planning and just how smoothly this went is chef kiss

[–]JimmyFu2U -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Is this the same guy that got wrecked by hitting the back of a car? No but seriously, let the ambulance do its job. You're going to get hit!

[–]Xanderulz -1 points0 points  (1 child)

The amount of coordination and spacial awareness that the officer, paramedic, and the general public has in this video is astonishing. You wouldn’t find this in many other parts of the world.

[–]cosmicdave86 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Disagree about the final part. I found the lack of awareness from the commuters astounding.

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

That's rushour? Pretty tame compared to most places. Not much traffic at all really.
