Pakistani police; originally posted on Flickr.com by themexican.

‘Thulley Raj’ is what some at my alma matter (UET, Lahore) would call this. But it is really so much more; and less.

I look at the body language, the facial expressions, the way they hold their laathis, that look in their eyes… and it is so much more than just good photographic composition… it is multiple layers of meanings and memory… some good, some not as much.

    This picture is quite real and although can be humored, but reflects the good for nothing nature of Paki Police and our corrupt society. Very accurate depiction captured in this pic. Could you imagine seeking any sort of help or assitance from such cops?
