"I think they know that this car is carrying some contraband, who hijacks a 1400, who even try to evade being hijacked of his 1400?"

Haibo, Jet Li: Man pulls karate moves on the cops, leaves SA in stitches
In similar news, Briefly News previously reported that videos of a man dressed in an official police uniform while pulling some serious karate moves against the police is doing the rounds on social media and peeps cannot believe their eyes.
The videos were shared by social cohesion advocate Yusuf Abramjee (@Abramjee) on Twitter. He said the incident happened at a taxi rank in Cape Town. Details leading up to the bizarre fight are unknown.
Like something out of a kung-fu movie, in the first clip the man is seen surrounded by a number of police officers which he attempts to hit in a karate style. After managing to hit a few officers, he is seen eventually tiring out as he shouts and falls to the ground. It proves difficult to determine what exactly he is saying in the videos but he is clearly upset about something much to the on-looking crowd’s confusion.
In the second clip the infuriated man goes off at the officers, telling them that they can arrest him if they want to because he is standing for the truth.
The South African Police Service (SAPS) responded to the concerning footage and said it has been viewed by SAPS management.
More online users responded with concern and banter on the tweet:
“It seems like police are [biksemming[ each other in full uniform here."
"This one is more dangerous than electricity... those Jet Lee moves."
