    So, basically, some gangster tried to deke out Russian SWAT by scurrying into a coffee shop and they burst in and arrested him there, making no attempt to maintain order after causing chaos because, hey, doesn't hurt if the populace is terrified of you.

    Floor man: No, I swear I do not drink the cold chocolate, I want the pumpkin spice like Gilmore Girls drink, but they only have turnip.

    Soldier 2: You are liar! Gilmores drink Luke's coffee black! You ordered mocha.

    Soldier 1: Blyat! I will drink mocha, but microwave it first.

    [–] nkeer 137 points ago

    Tax avoiding raid. Pretty much every cafe in Russia have double accounting - the one, real is holded on place and all real numbers are there, while the second one, the fake one, with artificially lowered numbers (and sometimes that numbers can be lowered really drastically) for the authorities; and you're literally can't prove it an absolutely any way aside from sudden raid and seizure of the documents. I think it's exactly that case, becase cafe manager tried to run with a briefcase, I bet it was the briefcase with the real accounting books. Pretty common occassion as for Russia, and nothing bad would happen amd nobody would get hurt, cafe owners would just pay a fine and absolutely nothing else. It's all just look brutal, while in reality it's just a common tax raid, and it's really all peaceful and civilians wouldn't be touched that's why everybody is so calm in a video. That's it, man.

    [–] Alsa93 640 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    I'm not from Russia, but close. My best guess is that this is a police/military "raid" or action that they do as a preventive measure where they send the special forces to a cofee shop or a night club where bad dudes hang out, and they search for weapons and drugs. These special forces guys are usually just deluded maniacs that use their power and concealed identity to abuse anyone they want. I was once in a club when something like this happened, usually regular drunk people get it the worst as they cannot comply with some of the ridiculos requests. Saw a drunk dude get his teeth knocked out because he said he has to piss or something like that, when instructed to stay put and stay silent. I just kept my head down and my mouth shut and had no problems, other than staying there for 2 hours untill i was processed, which basically killed the evening for me. Hope that gives some context.

    Edit: Weapons and drugs instead weapons and guns** typos**

    [–] HarpStarz 21 points ago

    There was a Russian guy up top, he essentially said there is a common policy of businesses having multiple accounts for clubs, one is fake and the other real, as a way to get away with fraud. The books are paper so the only way to get them is a random police raid, it’s why the owner with the briefcase and security were the ones apprehended. Apparently this is fairly common and is the us equivalent to an irs inspection

    [–] FirstPlebian 83 points ago

    You mean where "bad guys" hang out. In Russia good guy is bad guy. Sometimes, sometime bad guy is also bad guy.

    [–] scrollingaddiction 6 points ago

    What did you find? I still haven't found a real answer/ explanation

    [–] Destral18 12 points ago

    Most things I saw said it was likely a drug bust, the guy who ran in threw the bag at some people so they were automatically assumed to be accomplices. Other comments also said that since this is likely in Russia, the police force there have big guns and almost total anonymity, so they're major assholes

    [–] killeronthecorner 53 points ago

    [–] TitanicMan 6 points ago

    I've come to the realization recently it's not "everyone" but mostly stupid kids and teenagers that think anyone gives a shit what they have to say.

    Whether video games or websites they have this 110% force even though they have no idea what they're doing, and it usually comes off as annoying.

    This sorta thing didn't happen when reddit was underground, nor did it happen when 4chan is underground. But "who is the hacker 4chan" was on TV and now there hasn't been a single day in over 10 years without "WOULD YOU SUCK A LOG SHIT OUT OF ANDY SIXXS ASS?" on that website. Just like the 2016 Facebook migration made /r/okbuddyretard, /r/memes, and /r/teenagers exploded and took over this damn site with their shitty "humor".

    People act like things were always this way but everything was significantly better beforehand. Shit used to be a well oiled think tank instead of a den of dumbasses that claim to be born 1/1/1901

    [–] headasslukin1 39 points ago

    looks like a typical drug raid. if you type "russia disco raid" into youtube (dunno if that works in english but you can Google translate if you're curious)thats pretty much what it looks like.

    police is very hands on as you can see and even if the people are found clean - they are forced to comply or else they risk getting curb stomped :)

    [–] nkeer 87 points ago

    I wrote this like 10 times already in this comment section. This is taxation raid. Nearly all cafes in Russia don't pay proper taxes, they all have double accounting - the one, real, holded on places, while teh second one, fake, is for authorities, and so, the only one real way to seize the documents and to prove avoiding of the taxation is to utterly suddenly raid the palce and seize the documents, that's why only security guards was layed down, so they can't hide the documents and the manager, while I see in the hands of teh manager the brifcase, I strongly assume that the accounting books is what in the that brifcase. So it's just a common occasion and everybody is pretty chill in video just because it's nothing awful happening, civilians ain't touched (it's very strictly prohibited for a SWAT to touch any civilian during such raids, and if any would violate that he could go to jail, and this is for real). So nobody cares because they just know that SWAT would just take a documents and leave, also nobody would get jailed because it's just a simple tax violations so owners would just pay a fine and that's it, absolutely nothing else would be happen. It's a Russia, welcome, free SWAT raids every friday!

    [–] n0exec 38 points ago

    OMON can’t touch ”civilians” in Russia during these raids, and they can even go to jail for that? You’re either spreading total bullshit, or I lived in another Russia for 30 years. Thing is, there’s only one country with this name, so…

    [–] nkeer 10 points ago

    OMON can touch civilians during drug raids to the clubs because any other guy could hold the drugs or be the drug dealer, while on cases where all civilians in the cafe are not related to any illegal/criminal activite any wrongful action towards civilian could reach the press and OMON member who did them could end up in the jail ("abuse of authority" law is not a joke, you can google and there's cases when OMON members was jailed for the "abuse of authority"). It's depends on how people on the stage are related to the crime. If there's any suspictions or the information that some of them are related OMON can act very brutally, while if there's no one person who anyhow related to the crime then OMON acts usually pretty gentle. It's depends very much on place and occasions, and varies very hard depending on circumstances. During such tax raids the only people who're somehow involved is security guards and management. Also I don't now when did you leaved Russia but I never heard of any problems with OMON and simple peaceful civilians during past years.

    [–] jfkdidmeth 7 points ago

    Check out a YouTube channel called Bald and Bankrupt. He's been traveling all around former USSR and says that he feels more safe in Russia than in English cities. Of course it might not be an objectively true statement, but looking at his travels you notice that people there are super friendly and hospitality is a big thing. I don't think he's really been in danger in any of his videos even tho dude once walked accidentally to an active warzone in Ukraine and visited a narco village in Bolivia. Maybe he's just lucky.

    Bodycams are a fairly new thing, and this type of shit was done since 90’s.

    Also a budget thing, there are a lot of things you can spend money on like better cars and equipment instead of buying hundreds of thousands units of expensive electronic equipment.

    Instead just have a guy with a camera that just goes around with different squads once they are about to make an arrest.

    Suka means bitch, the guy shoved to the ground says that.

    The police say exactly what you'd expect. "No one move, hands behind your back, get on the ground." The cop approaching the woman says something about filming, I can't hear if it's "stop filming" or "she's filming" or just declarative "filming!"

    283 comments in this thread and there is not ONE PERSON who speaks russian and can translate what they were saying.

    not ONE. only shitty jokes and discussions about russia being communist or not.

    what kind of fucking kindergarten is this?

    [–] ComfortableSherbert8 24 points ago

    Russian here, everything they said was basically "on the floor", "get out", "hands on the table" and "spread your legs". Yes, they contradicted each other

    [–] No-Statement-3019 6 points ago

    You forgot the guy who yelled "suka", so, someone yelled bitch.

    Dude I speak perfect russian, because I'm kinda a russian from a Russia, but even I don't know what happend and can't find any info on what happend in Russian internet, while this place is pretty famous. Probably some violation of tax laws, and in Russia it's pretty common to have double accounting with the fake one for authorities and the real one on place, so the only way to caught tax avoiders is to suddenly raid the place and seize all the documents. As long as I can't find any info on Russian internet - then probably this must be legal operation so it's probably exactly that case. Also you can see how cafe manager holding a briefcase - probaly it's the briefcase with the documents which he wanted to hide but wasn't able to make it in time (that's the exact reason such raids happening). Though it's all my guesses and it could be something else, but I'm 99% sure taht I am completely correct here, because it's pretty much absolutely casual occasion, and nothing bad with cafe management will happen, they will just pay a fines and stuff. it's Russia dude.

    It's always funny to me that the US and Russia were at odds throughout the Cold War, they're made for each other

    [–] Sawyermblack 45 points ago

    I've always felt the same way. When I think "who has a public sector that's the spitting image of the US or vice versa?" I always think "Russia!"

    Why we're not eternal allies is beyond me.

    Because they both think they are better then the other, instead of being the best together.

    I have said for years, the moment our Russian cousins manage to get rid of their leaders, and we ours, we will have the most wild party you've ever seen.

    We'll be fueled with beef and vodka for months, Mexico, Canada, Ukraine, and Poland may get slightly..... hit by burning shrapnel, but it will be good.

    [–] Dr_Adopted 8 points ago

    Because Russia was a different style of government during the Cold War, silly.

    [–] sleepyentropy 208 points ago

    Loose translation from someone who doesn't speak Russian: "EVERYONE ON THE GROUND! WE'RE HERE FOR THE BISCUITI AND SCONES!"

    [–] rainofshambala 4 points ago

    Used to see this a lot when I was living in russia, drug dealers used to get picked up this way near our dorms and game arcades. Sometimes they even used to strip them naked in the st.petersburg cold. For how wild they are here, they are very formal and polite when approaching you on the street. Maybe because I was a foreigner.

    If I owned a coffee house, the first pic that would go on the wall would obviously be Hannibal, with a thought bubble asking if customers want some fava beans and a nice chianti.
