I am not familiar with the story and don't intend to get into specifics, but while I think there is merit to your general point both approaches seem non-exclusive to me.
Given that there seem to have been a least two armed police men one could have maintained guard, prepared to use force to ensure civilian safety while the other one engages with the person.

Also, in this particular case the person was sitting in the car (if I understand the story correctly) and there seems very little indication that there was a relevant danger to any 3rd party.

Meet the Sex Workers Replacing Cops in Sandinista-Run Nicaragua

wocinsolidarity:

In most countries around the world, sex workers are criminalized by police officers. In Sandinista-run Nicaragua, sex workers are replacing police officers.

Last January, French filmmaker Florence Jaugey released a documentary about the Sunflowers of Nicaragua, a woman-led sex worker collective serving as community mediators for the socialist government. Today, the documentary is receiving praise across Latin America, one of the most dangerous regions in the world for sex workers.

“We wanted to show the world that we are not the image they have of us,” Sunflowers of Nicaragua member Maria Elena Davila told El Nuevo Diario.

“We are capable women, we defend our rights, and we are also contributing to justice in our country. This documentary tells our story.”

In 2009, members of the Sunflowers of Nicaragua began organizing against discrimination and violence within their communities. They did this with the intention of gaining the trust of their communities in order to win mass support for their primary demand: the judicial integration and unionization of sex workers across the country. Their strategy worked.

In 2015, Nicaragua’s Supreme Court of Justice asked members of the collective if they wanted to work as judicial facilitators in Managua, Economy reports. Now, the sex workers are accredited and have licenses signed by the Supreme Court of Justice to mediate small conflicts in their communities, which include problems between relatives and neighbors.

The program is intended to “reduce the weight on the police and the judicial system” while integrating sex workers into Nicaragua’s judicial system, Jaugey told Economy in a recent interview.

“It’s a unique case in the world that the justice authorities have given this responsibility to these women,” Jaugey said.

“But also the success of this film is not just due to Nicaragua and the state of the law here, it’s also due to the goodwill of these women.”

The Sunflowers of Nicaragua has also been accepted by the socialist government’s Confederation of Self-Employed Workers, granting them legal union status. The collective, which aims to organize Nicaragua’s estimated 14,000 sex workers, has recruited 2,300 thus far.

Last February, Nicaragua’s Ministry of Labor ruled in favor of a sex worker who was fired from a nightclub for being pregnant, setting a precedent for the country’s sex worker labor laws.

... If your kid comes out of the bedroom and says he just shut down the government, it seems to me he should at least have an outfit for that. Get a look!

Ad for German chain of do-it-yourself stores “Hornbach”

“You can be everything but clumsy.”

(x)

I love how Hornbach’s claim translates to “There’s always something to do” (or someONE in this case, hah)

HOLY SHIT THIS CAMPAIGN IS FUCKING INCLUSIVE

I’M MORE AND MORE IN LOVE WITH HORNBACH

“You helped rebuilding Germany. So don’t let other tell you how to renovate”

“There’s nobody who is allowed to tell you that you can’t do it. Nobody but your project.”

I’m going to reblog this again and point out again that Hornbach has probably some of the best advertisment I’ve ever seen in Germany.

New Elaborate Patterns and Designs Carved on Produce by ‘Gaku’

Although we first mentioned his work here only a month ago, food artist Gaku has continues to share numerous examples of his inventive approach to food carving called mukimono. Gaku works with little more than an x-acto knife to carve quickly before the fruit or vegetable starts to change color, executing motifs and patterns often found in Japanese art. You can see even more of his latest works on Instagram.
