Pics are not annoying, just ridiculously childish. It tells something. In most countries plain clothes policemen are told by internal memo's not show themselve for press photos. Sounds very logic. Huh, logic? Yup-yup.

Please PN, stop publishing pictures of policemen ! It annoys your devoted reader !

Free walking criminals are happy with the continuous self exposure of plain clothed/undercover police men. So nice, a special wind shirt/jacket for photo for this 12 officers.. What would police life be without selfkicking photos?

What's with the group photo? Did every officer from Thalang police station want to get his face included in a pic to look as if they were included in the apprehension of one minor criminal. LOL
