Shoutout to EPS

Big shoutout to Edmonton Police for their actions Saturday night keeping us safe. It could have been a lot worse.

And to the 3 cowards who ran instead of assisting a fellow citizen I hope you made it safely back to mommas basement and your happy place. Next time grow a pair, sissy.

    Until you walk a mile in their shoes, you cannot judge or have any idea why they didn’t intervene.

  2. We do not know exactly what happened. The officer may have told them to leave and call for help. We don’t know. Do not judge.

  3. Why bother posting your negative judgement of others. Everyone reacts differently. Flight, fight, freeze… I don’t judge.

  4. They were smart not to intervene, Imagine if someone accidentally hurt the Somali guy? Hate crime.

  5. Truly the definition of a keyboard warrior.

    OP, tell me all about how the time you saved a police officer who was hit by a car and then attacked with a knife.

    You can’t. Because you sit in YOUR momma’s basement thinking you would have acted differently. That you felt the need to post about it proves you wouldn’t.

    To sit behind a keyboard and judge who is a coward and who should “grow a pair” takes guts.

  7. They were not cowards…just people

    Every “tough guy” out there is going to say they would jump in and help the cop. Fuck I’d like to think I would, but in that situation, who knows. That’s some scary shit and everyone has somebody else to think about. As much as I want to believe I would jump in and help, I have a wife and kids to think about. It’s a tough spot for somebody to be in. Unless you were there and threw on your hero cape, don’t put them down.

  10. Cops shoot people everyday for no damn reason. Someone got fed up

  11. Great shoutout. Did you write this from your moms basement ?

    [0]
  12. Cowards? Because they didn’t want to risk getting stabbed by a psycho?
    I would have ran too.

  13. Honestly, if you aren’t trained to deal with the situation or have some special skills, you just make yourself another target/victim if you do.

    [0]
  14. Yeah, I’m sure you’d have jumped right in there and risked your life

    [0]
  15. I agree with the first part of this statement; but definitely not the latter.

  16. What an idiot, nice and safe behind your screen

  17. Wow, this is how hatred starts. No one know how you will react in a situation like this. There first reaction was to go an help.

    Get bent. You werent there and dont know the situation. There is word the cop told them to run…

  19. the first thing I learned when I took my first aid course was to stay out of the situation until it is safe to approach.. while being a hero is great, unless one is trained properly, it can actually do more harm than good to jump in

  20. I would of tried to help and asked the others to do the same gang up on him .. I couldn’t just stand there and watch someone being stabbed and do nothing . I least I would try .. I just couldn’t watch anybody being stabbed and not try .

  21. FYI the officer that was down asked them to go… A true hero he is as he got run down, stabbed and got up to call for back up. Please be sure you know the facts first. I understand your anger, it is not misplaced 🙂 Have a good one #Edmonton Strong#

  22. It is a fight or flight response. So I am not surprised that someone who was unarmed and not prepared had the flight response. It’s human. Not their fault someone did something horrible and the others are to blame for not responding to horror?

    OP needs to shut it… That situation was bad shit and dangerous for anyone to be involved in. It’s called fight or flight.

  24. Brad Daniels Brad Daniels says:

    This was a cowardly thing to say. I’m pretty sure if this dude has a knife and is attacking an officer of all people you’d be running too. You can say whatever you want but you were not there so who knows what you would have done. You are a keyboard warrior and that’s all you are. You should not be calling people pussies but showing support to the affected by this attack. You are are not a good citizen just by saying that. You are a Facebook troll and nothing more.

  25. Hit him with the barricade…you don’t have to get close for that.

    Seems I posted by error here meaning for a different shout out post to a family seeking help. Instead of just saying that I posted in wrong spot with all these horrible events going on people feel the need to be rude. It was my error and just a letting me know would have been fine. I have removed the accidental post and rudeness. But people just need to be support others there’s enough bad going on out there.

  28. You don’t know how old those people were, if they had kids with them, their physical/mental capabilities, maybe they knew where the next closest cop was stationed, and were running to get help, maybe they were so shocked they didn’t know what to do…everyone reacts differently under pressure…there are million reasons why people may not have helped. Be thankful it wasn’t you in that situation, having to make that decision!

  29. I’ll be honest, the last thing I’m going to do is run towards a psycho with a knife. I’ll call 911, from as far away as possible.

  30. I’m thinking the cop wore a vest that protected him against some of these knife blows if not all, but hey, the fact he bounced to his feet after taking that hit and flying in the air like he did…wow. Impressed.

  31. And what if one of the “hero’s” them selves get stabbed? Then there would be the officer and the now wounded person to deal with.

  32. Some people’s adrenaline would have most definitely acted upon staying with the officer, while others it wouldn’t. But to call them cowards? At least they rushed over to him.. too many people just walk away these days.

  33. Kathy Arndt Kathy Arndt says:

    I would have assisted. I thought I was the only one who noticed that. But having thought about it, the officer may have had his gun out, therefore making it an even more dangerous situation.

  34. Josh Neary Josh Neary says:

    If I was in that situation I would attempt to help with lazer eyes or thrown something with super strength. Upon realising I have no super powers I would look to my training. My training being in sheet metal and furnace repair, I then would realise that I should think on the spot and react to instincts, being a small guy my instinct would be likely to run and hide. Once in a safe place I would then feel emboldened to write about the cowardly deeds of others.

    I bet you were one of the people who ran off to hide there OP

  36. Shawna Perez Shawna Perez says:

    Cowards? F*ck you!!! Let’s see how YOU would react when someone comes running in your direction with a knife. You would likely run too since it’s an automatic reaction. Not only that, anyone who intervened ran the risk of being killed themselves if they had no kind of weapons defense training to stop the assailant. Don’t know too many people, prob not you either, who would willingly put themselves in that situation for a stranger, cop or not. It’s a relief the police officer will be ok, let’s just hope this assailant doesn’t end up making off with $10M Canadian like another terrorist we know.

  37. Scott Gill Scott Gill says:

    About 15 years ago in Vancouver I got sucker punched and knocked out trying to help defuse a serious domestic situation that was spiraling out of control in the middle of a food court in a mall.

    Apparently I hit the floor head first and that resulted in a medical issue that is with me to this day, and will be for the rest of my life.

    So, perhaps you can find it in your heart to forgive me when I look the other way.

    If I came across someone who is injured and the assault is over and the aggressor is gone Iwill check and see if the victim is ok, but I will never again step in between two people fighting, even if it is a man beating his wife.
