Mikaela Kellner Bikini Cop

Mikaela Kellner, arguably one of the world’s most famous police officer, has quit her job in Sweden after eleven years on the force. Kellner rose to national and international fame last summer for arresting a thief in Stockholm park wearing only a bikini.

Her resignation may strike a blow to the public image of Sweden’s police, which has suffered recently.

In 2015, her action took media attention and made international headlines. From that day, Mikaela Kellner was dubbed as ‘Bikini police‘ and ‘Swedish ninja‘ for assisting in the arrest of a thief in a park in Stockholm and all of that while off-duty. The fact that she was wearing a bikini instead of her police uniform did not stop her from intervening, chasing and at the end pinning the bewildered would-be pickpocket to the ground until reinforcement come.

For her actions, she was received a call from Swedish Interior Minister Anders Ygeman and an invitation to have lunch at Rosenbad, Sweden’s seat of government. However, that wasn’t enough to prevent her from quitting. She decided to move forward despite it was a hard choice and start full-time job as a fitness instructor. If you take a look on her official Instagram account you will know that this move will be instant success.

A former Air Force mechanic who was once deployed to Afghanistan is now an Instagram model and bodybuilder with hundreds of thousands of fans. Right after graduating high school, Florida-resident Hope Howard’s ambition to help other people prompted her to join the US Air Force, and by 19 years old, she was sent to the Middle East.

On her website, Hope, 26, calls her deployment ‘both the worst and best experience of my life,’ adding that it resulted in her doing ‘an immense amount of growing and began to see the world differently.’

‘I had an M-16 machine gun strapped to me pretty much 24/7,’ she said.

At the end of the tour, the experience caused her to re-evaluate her career and revisit a dream she’d had since she was a little girl: becoming a model.

‘A fire started to burn inside me and it couldn’t be put out,’ she said. ‘Lifting weights and eating properly seriously saved my life!’

After just four years, as the end of her six-year enlistment approached, Hope had worked her way up to becoming a personal trainer and a weightlifter.

But then Hope experienced yet another life changing event: the death of her grandmother.

‘She was my most favorite person in the whole world and I started to give up on my dream again but then I remembered something very important,’ she said. ‘My grandma told me “You have to live your life no matter what.” So from then on I decided to do just that. I decided to get out of the military and pursue fitness modeling and personal training full time. This way I could have the best of both worlds. I could model while helping others.’

Today, she has built an incredible online following, with more than half a million followers on Instagram alone. Fans can’t get enough of Hope’s scantily clad selfies, showing off her incredible, hard-earned fit form.

When she isn’t snapping jaw-dropping bikini photos, Hope also competes as a body builder and offers online services to people trying to get fit.

hand grenade

Sometimes some people have more luck than a brain. In Chinese Shaanxi Province, one villager used a hand grenade to crack nuts for 25 years not knowing it might be deadly.

A resident of Dunmu District surnamed Ran brought a hand grenade to local police station in early December where he told police officers that he worked in Shuangqiao District in Hebei Province. In 1991, one of his colleagues gave him the grenade, China People’s Daily reported.

The villager said he did not even know that the strange metal ‘egg’ was a grenade, but noticed that it was perfect for cracking nuts. Recently he saw a pamphlet prohibiting storing firearms and explosives at home. Ran saw his favorite nut-cracker in one of the illustration, and so he found out his nut-cracker, in fact, was a hand grenade which might be deadly and explodes on impact.

After that, Ran decided to take this ‘household appliance’ to the local police station. The report does not specify what the police officers told to Ran, but claims that they called the man “reckless”.
