Well this is something you don’t see every day.
Police officer Anirut Malee was spending a normal day at work at Huay Kwang police station in Thailand, when suddenly a clearly distressed man walks in holding what appears to be a large knife.
According to Newser.com the man was not having the best of days and decided to take it out on the local police. You can see it all in the video below:
The video clearly shows how Anirut Malee reacts. You’d think maybe he would pull out a gun or jump at the guy. But Anirut seems clearly calm and confident and simple remains seated in front of the assailant and starts a dialougue with him. He tells Thai Visa News:
“He used to be a musician but had been working as a security guard for three days and had not been paid. On top of this he had had his guitar stolen and it was all stressing him out.
“I heard him out and sympathized and said I had a guitar to give him, and suggested we go out for a meal together. We were conversing in Southern Thai dialect”.
Somehow Anirut managed to calm the distressed attacker – and then the most amazing thing happened. The assailant just calmly handed the knife over to the Anirut without putting up any fight.
He broke down in tears and Anirut went up to the man and did the unimaginable:
He gave him a big giant hug and didn’t charge him with a crime. If you are looking for the definition of “public servant…this is it.
