Police Can Be Intense (Funny Pics)


"QUANTUM SHOT" #383

Also see Part 1

"Are you talking to me?"

This kind of intimidating response can be expected from some policemen with high opinion of themselves, which (depending on their mental abilities) may be even followed by "Do I look stupid to you?". In this case it's better not to answer this question truthfully. Fact is, some police personnel is downright funny, and some police methods are bordering on hilarious. Here is an attempt to put together some visual (and factual) proof of this phenomena:

Action!





Clowns can protect themselves, if needed:





The picture above is scary enough, but it's actually a cosplay (costume play) based on "Jin-Roh" anime...

However, it's not too far away from reality:



Ukrainian military police training:



Chinese hardships:





Palestinian police training (Rafah, Gaza):

Police cars have to be tough

"Here's what 44 rounds of 7.62 from an AK-47 and .38 will do to a brand new
police car." (more info)



Some vintage police cars were also quite stylish:

Today, the world's fastest police car: Lamborghini Gallardo -

Check out the video of driving it here.

Among another cool police vehicles is Lotus Esprit s4:



Lamborghini Murcielago lp640 of the London police:



Porsche 911 Carerra German police

German Police usual Mercedes cars do not look too shabby either:



and this Volkswagen is simply the best:



Quite a different Mercedes, quite different police:



Segway-mounted police looks quite strange, frankly:

Russian militia has to carry a CANNON around to adequately counter Russian mafia firepower:



Maybe Moscow militia does not even need cars:



Italian police vehicle:




They mean business: Iranian Women Police

This is another side of life in Iran (see more peaceful side here)

North Korean militia girls do not look as frightening:

Strange Encounters



Police has a weird thing with animals sometimes:
Walk your pig, barbeque it later:



Yea, but what do you do with a snake?



Maybe if that snake was trespassing, or obstructing traffic:



Smaller fry:



Somewhere in Russia, the military is bored:





Dogs have to endure things....



... but only to a point:



Chinese military is bored:

Indian military is bored:



The "White Helmets" motorcycle display team (members of the Royal Corps of Signals in the British Army):





Airport customs personnel can be bored, too:



This police is also bored, but then again, it could be photoshop:



Simply bored:

That so called London Met Police Lamborghini, is a Photoshop.
One, because the Met do not have a Lambo.
Two, because its very obviously shopped.
And three, because the license plate reads "Yevil" which is the show plates given to a number of vehicles.

It dont think the Segways with the big red sign "Paramedic" are police...

I was a member of the forum this picture http://lh5.google.ca/abramsv/R8-tHHH54kI/AAAAAAAAKwo/TJJxpbHdwXo/2096443269_f8fd5ddb56_o.jpg?imgmax=512
was originally posted to. Neither guy is a (goofing off) police officer. It's the result of an amusing and talented amateur photographer and willing friends.

The 2nd pic with the clown, the cops are justified in their recoil and apparent fear. People have been known to put liquids other than water into water guns, such as diluted acid, pepper spray-like liquids, bleach, ammonia etc. People are messed up.
Nice collection of pics, BTW.

Actually, the cop leading the pig might not be dumb (or posed); Pigs have an excellent sense of smell (ask anyone who gathers truffles for a living) and, as I understand it, are just as good as dogs when it comes to sniffing out e.g. drugs. Also, a cop dragging (or being dragged by, as the case may be) a pig is probably less intimidating than some enormous, saliva-dripping German Shepherd.

Regards & all,
Thomas

What on earth are they holding in the foreground of the 2nd picture of the Iranian Police? Whatever it is looks like it's absurdly high calibre - a flare gun, or something like an M79 maybe?

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Reply to 256:

The guns in the 2nd Iranian Police pic are competition-type target pistols. The big tube is a recoil-compensator, not a barrel: the actual barrel is above it, and may be only .22 in calibre.

This pic is presumably the Police sport-shooting team (or a staged publicitiy shot, of course). HWS

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oops - re my last comment, the big tube isn't a recoil compensator, it's an air-reservoir: the guns are competition air-pistols........

HWS.

Indeed they are air pistols.

Steyr LP's I beleive.

Captain Matt: The Met Lambo isn't photoshopped, they had it at the MPH motorshow at Earls Court, London, last year. It's just one they hired for a few weeks and stuck the stickers on for publicity (I had a chat with one of the cops at the stand). So it's not really theirs, but it definately isn't photoshopped :)

i want uniforms like those in the cosplay.the fear factor would be great especially if it was all bullet proof

Blogger Mark said...

the picture with the clown is actually of a member of the clown army (The Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army), protesting. They protest against the WTO, G8, etc.. The certainly do not carry anything more lethal/harmful than water. The shock on the policeman's face was probably more due to seeing another pesky cameraman.

Blogger Janet said...

Um doesn't that say Paramedic on the side of the Segway? I think there is a HUGE difference.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

The picture captioned "Russian Military Police" is neither of Russians or Police. It is of the "White Helmets" motorcycle display team who are members of the Royal Corps of Signals in the British Army. Hope that helps.

Some of those police cars are ridiculous. I mean like who needs a 200k police car? Talk about tax waste. Sigh.
