Just take it easy
Four Swedish police officers, riding on New York City's 6 train, had to go back to work briefly, in order to subdue two men who were fighting.
While on their way to watch “Les Miserables,” two homeless men started fighting on an uptown 6 train in the middle of rush hour, DNAinfo reports. Witnesses told the news site that the train’s conductor was aware of the fight and remained in the Bleecker Street station, asking over the loudspeakers if there were any police officers on board.
“They were lying on the floor, one on top of the other,” said Stockholm officer Makrus Åsberg, 25. “We got to make sure that nobody gets hurt . . . try to calm them down without hurting them.
The officers repeatedly ask the men if they are injured, including the alleged aggressor, who at one point says he's can't breath. They pull off of him enough to make sure they aren't pressing his chest down to hard and ask him if he's injured, telling him to relax and calm down. It is possible to handle things well—even in bad situations.
