So, in need of some brain deadness, I was watching a documentary series about a security team in a British hospital. Among other social problems, there has been an increase in assaults on hospital staff in the country and beefy guys in stab-resistant vests now monitor and patrol hospitals. (Side note - there seems to be the same problem as we have here with too many mentally ill folks on the street.) Anyway, in one episode, a large patient gets violent. Security pins him to floor. Police arrive and it goes like this:
Patient: "I'll kill you!"
Officer standing over him, calmly: "Did you just threaten to kill me?"
Officer, calmly: "Well, that's going to change the way we play."
Patient, calmly:"I know."
Then it got uncalm.
Almost surreal, it made me laugh out loud.
