If It Weren’t So Stupid…

…it’d be funny. Linoge has a post with an image of Philippine riot police. Including 4 female officers in riot gear.

At least from the waist up.

Below that they have on a strait skirt and heels. Guys have leg protection on, women don’t. That’s crazy.

The only two things that might explain it a little would be if it was a training exercise, but you’d expect to train the same gear you’d work in. Or it was some surprise riot on a police station where they just grabbed everyone available including those women on desk duty. But it’s still crazy.
