    Acts like me when i am drunk, i can´t se the problem.

    (but guess all that all was not in duty and many strange things must be made by people on drugs i guess, i hawe seen people on drugs often does very strange things. Penalism and grup pressure often make people do even more strange things they not even dreamed about normaly. i hawe seen tings similar to that (folks beating up people in strange ways osv) (but often sligtly less extreme (and not by a policeman… but i hawe somte times (but rarley) heard about civilian policemen even i other countries sometimes does strange things when he´s not in duty)))

    But i guess that sadly it´s still lot of corruption.
    Beside that i clearly think that russian police is way better than in many other non european/non american contries. I hawe reed about far worse from those countries.

    (Sorry for my english)
