This hilarious video shows the moment a cop needed armed colleagues with a battering ram to break him out – of a locked station toilet.


The funny footage shows a cop being busted out of the bathroom with the heavy-duty ram after getting stuck.

The huge red enforcer - dubbed the big red key - is normally used to smash down the doors of hardened criminals.

The 30-second clip opens with an officer from an unidentified force striding into the toilet with the 35lb battering ram over his shoulder.

He then checks that his colleague is not behind the door, asking:

"Are your trousers up or what - are you ready to go?"

Given the go-ahead, the officer easily breaks into the bathroom with just one swing and frees the trapped man.

He then emerges to the laughter and cheers of his assembled colleagues - and appears to look a bit sheepish.

The video was filmed earlier this month.

The owner did not want to reveal which force was involved.

He joked:

"What is the cake fine for getting yourself locked in the bathroom and having to be saved by Firearms?"

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
