|Hong Kong cops keeping the city's streets safe... sort of...|
Today is Good Friday, a public holiday in Hong Kong.
Most people were asleep or out of town but I was one of the lucky few who had to go to work.
This morning as the bus passed through Wan Chai, there were seven police motorcycles parked in front of a police van or paddy wagon. On the back of it was a big neon yellow sign that read "Random Breath Test" and three cops standing there, one or two with clipboards. The rest were stationed a few metres away, standing around, chatting amongst themselves.
What is the point of a breathalyzer test at 9:30 in the morning?
Shouldn't they be out in force over six hours earlier at 3am when there's a higher chance of people in a drunken stupor?
It seemed like overkill having seven cops there plus a police wagon at 9:30am and not even conducting random tests that I could see.
Good to know the streets of Hong Kong are extra safe with these cops around...
