Especially there, where most of the policemen are poor shaabeb and fellah from the countryside, sent to the big city on a 2yr conscripted hitch.The conscripted big city boys? They get sent out to the countryside police stations. And conditions for the conscripted police? Not very good. Comparisons to Red Army conscripts abound; and enough of these kids have eaten a gun barrel (or gone after a senior ranking police general) that they normally have no bullets for the guns they carry.RP
I love that picture.It's almost like I hear the whispered conversation..."Mom, seriously, I'm really busy right...NOT IN FRONT OF THE GUYS? Aw geez, mother...I'll never hear the end of it, now.../ahem...Oh crap...hey sarge, yeah, this is my mom.."
