Re: Swiss Police Must Be Challenged - Give No quarter!

Good attempt and I like the Irish jig but I'm docking marks for gratuitous drone footage and only using half the song run time.
Unlike Zuger Polizei it seems they ran out of moves

I'd rather just have them doing their job and projecting a professional image. I'm all for sillyness but this is a bit too silly from a police force, in my opinion.

Let them have fun..and communities smile a little, I can imagine being a cop in covid times isn't what any cop signed up for, innitially. If nurses can take selfies in space suits, teachers make silly faces to make kids laugh in quarantine, cops can do a bit of quasi choreography, no?

I thought that was pretty funny!



I agree that they get half marks for lots of drone footage and using only half the song. On the other hand, they have dancing horses!

Same for me. Pheeew, they're not moving was my thought so thanks Castro for providing.
I liked the horse bit, could have been longer.

AA stands for anonymous alcoholics, mate.

That was pretty much the response they got from the Lucerne police. They felt it was totally inappropriate for the police to dance in groups while people are told to socially distance.

My view? Safest and probably cheapest way to boost team morale and make other people smile too. They are keeping their distance, wearing masks and fewer people out and about means the police have less work than they usually do. All good.
