Why unexpected? I should think the parallel is striking. We are at a point where one cannot help but sense that a lot is changing suddenly. The old order is crumbling rapidly. People are somewhat stunned and don't know what is coming. They aren't Hobbesian monsters though, giving in to their fears. Most welcome the newcomers, and are prepared to show solidarity, and hope that the change will be for the better.

I think he meant that the unexpected was a policeman saying this, not the comparison itself.
