Female employee doing a promotional for "May the 4th be with you" is taken down by some real dumb ass police in Canada. Guess they gave her a bloody nose because why not?

Are cops really this stupid? Even after seeing the plastic blaster they still threaten, make her get on her belly and cuff her...... why?

Crap like this is why people are on the watch for police abuses and moronic decisions.

The Lethbridge Police Service has started an internal investigation after officers drew their guns on a teenager dressed as a Star Wars stormtrooper carrying a toy gun.

The person was a 19-year-old female employee of Coco Vanilla Galactic Cantina, a Star Wars-themed restaurant, according to business owner Bradley Whalen. The teen was holding a prop plastic gun as part of her costume.


Girl dressed up as a stormtrooper on may4th facing 3 cops with weapons drawn. You can hear her sobbing.

There are so many things that are wrong with what happened here.

However, what really struck me as an indication that we are the end of times was her workplace.

Coco Vanilla Galactic Cantina is an actual operating business?

We're doomed as a species..

I heard that she fired her blaster several times, yet hit nothing.

Yeah it is funny that they didn't understand what was going on, but as for the use of Force, I am afraid I saw little to no use of force.

It could also have been a fairly cynical attempt to get press exposure for the business (hey officer, I was just using the force).

But the police do appear to have been stupid and heavy handed.

...yeah, I think staring down the barrel of an MP5, as a threat of violence, is probably enough.

Did these guys overreact? Maybe not initially... but they went too far with it.

It's Canada... the Shangri La of anti-gun North America.

I always suspected that, the Resistance force aimed at the Galactic Empire was Canadian lead.

It explains Wookies, Ewoks and overly apologetic Skywalkers. All Canadians.

We are with you, Canada!

Storm Troopers are no joke...

It is best to use full force on them...SWAT is better.

I would imagine if she was dressed as Batman it would have been a more positive outcome with high fives and fist bumps.

There is a store/restaurant with galactica on it, those cops are from that town. They should have seen that gun was a plastic gun and just walked up to the person. I cannot see them pulling their guns. I can see them getting called, but their overreaction was uncalled for.

Now, the person taking the pictures, why did they not say anything? It seems like they are moving around a lot to take those pictures. Why isn't the guy at the place saying anything, if it was my employee, I would be out there talking to the cops. Something is weird about this one.

Canada s a cess pool of corruption....Police can murder you on the street any time they want arbitrarily with zero worries of being held accountable legally in any ways shapes nor forms.....its fu#@ing sickening already.....I know of a guy who just, pulled over to sleep on the side of the Highway on his way home on Emergency leave from his Job who was woken p unceremoniously and then shot 16 fu#@ing times ….for not obeying verbal commands….no other reason....murdered in cold blood on the way to meet his new baby for the first time...this is someone in my bigger circle …...Leos guilty as sin were protected by a conjob group called ALERT a group of Leos who investigate serious lethal potential wrongdoing by other Leos...imagine that......Canada is a cess pool....hope springs eternal...but right now its a cess pool....once America has things cleaned up at home they need to fix Canada to....only 38 million people...the USA can clean up the trash running Canada any time they want to...we will patiently wait to be freed from our bondage an will forever be gratefull….and owe the USA one.

When you cannot get impartial Investigations and when you cannot SUE THE ASSES off of the Police or Government for wrongdoing which you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT DO IN CANADA...well then you are a Prisoner...with no Geneva Convention behind you.

Cops are a sampling of the general population. So yes, a lot of them are exactly this stupid.

I don’t know what’s more stupid, the action of the police or that someone called it in.

Ignorant people ruin it for everyone.

The USAF had very high enlistment standards when I served...

Yet, I still convinced a kid to call his home state government... to make sure his birth certificate hadn't expired.

So... yeah.

The cops yelled at him to go back inside. As for the one filming in the beginning, I wonder if that’s who called it in. Maybe as a joke gone wrong.

Wow. Those are some really stupid cops. Which is saying something if you know anything about how they are hired in the first place.
