Columbian police bring guns to a knife fight, but don’t use them (VIDEO)

In a rural area of Columbia, police bring guns to a knife fight, futilely trying to break up a machete fight by firing warning shots into the air.

In what appears to be a battle in the art of Eskrima, a group of men hack away as they circle each other, searching for an opening to strike. All the while, Columbian police gather, but instead of dropping the dueling men they fire warning shots into the air, which has little to no effect on them.

According to LiveLeak, Columbian police are not legally permitted to fire upon civilians unless they are fired upon first.
