ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Seen enough video of auto insurance fraudsters being exposed by front-facing dashboard cameras? One fellow in Russia thought up a clever way to get the police in trouble, but didn't count for the fact that dashcams can be turned around. [Video Link]
I wonder if poorly equipped police like these are more or less likely to engage the public with force as opposed to dialogue, all else being equal.
They don’t have a cage, so is their captive less an animal to them than police with a cage?
I was in the back of a squad car ~8 years ago when I offered to go with the police to track down a hit and run driver who fled his vehicle. You really are locked in a nasty, airtight isolation booth. It’s not hard to figure out why they smell like piss and shit.
In Soviet Russia … something something something YOU ! ! !
In Soviet Russia, board dashes you.
I’m disappointed the cop stopped him. Shoulda let him wale away for a while, and then pointed out the camera.
Does this make me a bad person?
Appears he had recently seen “Fight Club.”
Could be that some Metalica came on the radio and he couldn’t help himself.
100 quatloos for a translation
…or that they record audio. I can only imagine the dialog was something like “Oh yeah? Well how are you going to explain to your superiors the big gash on my forehead?” WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM!
Hence the reversed instrumentation.
Seems like the kind of guy we’d still lock up if we had a justice system that was about justice… scary dude.
And he didn’t notice the cop adjusting the camera?
