In this footage from a gas station in Edmonton, Canada, two young ne'erdowells wheedle, wrangle and wrestle with a cop who, all said, appears to be having almost as bad a day as they do. And from there, the story makes less sense even as it attains extraordinary power and meaning.

Update: Here is the story: a card declined, a suspicious clerk, a prompt policeman, and all hell breaking loose.
On Monday afternoon, a 29-year-old woman fell through the ceiling of the King Street Reddi Mart and into the store below while trying to escape police. She was arrested without further incident.
She was with a 28-year-old man who was Tasered and then wrestled to the ground by an RCMP officer and the store owner.
The man and woman, both from Edmonton, have been charged with multiple counts, including using a stolen credit card, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, attempting to disarm a police officer and resisting arrest from someone aiding the police.
