Phnom Penh Police Pummelling
Heading down Street 63 and through three such policed-crossings last week on the back of a bike, I witnessed - whilst ducking at the same time - four to five policemen at each junction hurling stones at a young male and helmet-less motorcyclist who was recklessly racing through each intersection.
Miraculously, he wasn't toppled. His was a brand new motorbike without wing mirrors and he didn't have a helmet, so I presume that was the reason. Either that or it was his speeding. He got away but how many get stoned and actually hurt?
Certainly an interesting police tactic!
