“Every bartender I’ve ever met is better at de-escalating conflict than the police”

The George Floyd protests in May and June 2020 were against police brutality and racism in policing. Some people contrasted the police with how bartenders handle disputes.

“Every bartender I’ve ever worked with is better at de-escalating violence than the police are” was posted on Twitter by Ryan Oldham on June 6, 2020. “Every bartender I’ve ever met is better at de-escalating conflict than the police” was posted on Twitter by Lucie Steiner on June 8, 2020.


Wikipedia: George Floyd protests
The George Floyd protests are an ongoing series of protests and unrest against police brutality and racism in policing, which began in the United States in Minneapolis on May 26, 2020. These followed the the killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes during an arrest the previous day.

Pretty sure every bartender receives more de-escalation training than the police do.
