The NYPD has been showing a scene from Patrick Swayze's underrated 1989 classic Road House as part of a mandatory, three-day retraining course for 22,000 cops, the New York Post reports. It's the part where Swayze tells a bunch of tough guys to "be nice."
The retraining program was ordered after the death of Eric Garner at the hands of a police officer. Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that the retraining program "was going to have a transcendent effect," the Post reports.
"It's just ridiculous, the stuff they're showing us," one cop told the Post. "It's crazy. They're showing us something from a movie and they want us to act like that in real life. It's not realistic—it's Hollywood."
