Dancing Swedish Policeman

Maybe they just do things different overseas i dunno.
Over here there's sort of an intimidating factor officers of the law posses which i believe enables them to do their job/s better than...well the guy who you are about to watch in this video.
This was shot overseas in the town of Malmö, Sweden. Where ABBA still rules and the natives sure love to dance...including their officers of the law.
Not quite sure what exactly this particular officer was patrolling on this cobblestone street that doesnt seem quite busy with automobiles at all but what baffles me even more is where the hell the music is coming from? I cant figure out if its coming from the Police van? or from another location? (weirder if it was coming from the actual police van)
Anyways...here is Sweedens finest...doing what they do best...dancing.
DANCING SWEDISH POLICEMAN
Now i dont know about you, but talented as he is, i wouldnt be scared of this guy. I mean if i was walking the streets of Sweden and did something that commanded his attention (idk littering, jaywalking, something minor since im such a good citizen haha). Part of me would just wanna laugh at this guy and say 'yea okay buddy go back to dancing silly'. I dunno maybe thats me or maybe thats why you dont see to many dancing cops around nowadays.
And sure he can clearly get down to a funky beat and has become a hit across the internet over the past couple of days. But after investigating further ive learned he isnt the FIRST 'dancing policeman' to have a video go viral...in Providence, RI Officer Tony Lepore adds a little step to his street patrol (and reportedly has been doing it for years - since 1984) which not only helps keep the streets less cluttered with traffic but attracts onlookers to view his unusual methods. Here's a killer video of him here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-yBc8txHaA&feature=player_embedded#!
The guy even has his OWN WEBSITE where it lists all the events he is working (so people can come down and watch him at his craft). Now THATS crazy.
So it may take some time before our unknown Swedish Dancing Cop surpasses Officer Lepore in the 'best all-time dancing cop' category. But he's off to a good start with already surpassing 600,000 views in only a few short days since the videos been up.
Keep on dancing my man.
