Tokyo police create purse snatcher dummy
When Japanese police summon reporters to give a press conference about the arrest of a criminal, they often display stolen goods on a table. In other countries, this kind of display is often associated with photo ops following major drug busts, but here it is used to show off police achievements in cracking down on various other crimes, such as underwear theft.
This week, cops in Tokyo announced the arrest of serial purse snatcher. For their photo op, they actually dressed a dummy in the man’s clothing and placed him on the motor bike that was used for the crime!
Somebody had a lot of free time on their hands.
