Looking at this picture just makes my blood boil (click on picture for a larger view). I do not know the details of the situation, nor who did what or said what or who is at fault or what fault. But the body language and attitude depicted here just has me reeling.

What is being said and how did this end? I would love to find out, but I suspect I know already. Does anyone want to reconstruct how this conversation and confrontation might have gone?

Regular readers know of my fascination with cops, but it seems I am not the only one. Asma who blogs at Metroblog Islamabad as ‘A for Apple’ posted this photograph as part of a bunch of police related photographs from her collection. The picture was reprinted at Online News, is by Ehsan Khan and the original caption is suggestive (although one wonders about the authenticity of the details provided):

A boy speaks [sic] makes a point with a model policeman of Islamabad Traffic Police after violating the traffic rules near Parliament House. The boy eventually made his point with the policeman and was not issued any ticket.

    [quote comment=”12382″]Why are they allowed to even come out of thier car. It looks like they are threatning the cop. Here in US , you can not come out of the car if stopped by a cop.[/quote]

    …and a cop will not talk to the boy and instead with the driver of the car who is responsible for the offence. If boy makes too much trouble he would be taken to a side by a second cop and so on.

    Even the best police in Pakistan have miles to go quality wise.
