I think we have a new contender in the pointing photo of the year competition, especially with the accused getting in a cheeky point at the offending mobile phone. 9/10

Would be funnier to see pointing at himself. I think he is blaming the phone for making him do it

What's the difference between a real cop and a bogus cop? 

 

No, really. It's not a joke. I really don't know the difference. 

Real cops fake being cops somewhat better than fake cops.

no more stupid than all Asian people when they have their photo took they find it compulsory to make a silly v sign with their fingers. sad

I had a similar thing happen once at night time in a dark soi Huay Khwang area. Was riding my bike and got flagged by two "cops" swinging their flashlights. They didn't wear any uniform but had some "badges" on them. Asked to show my bag and inside my motorbike. I took my phone out and started filming them, the other quickly turned away and after they let me go.

Pointing in Thai culture is denigrating. Or rather being pointed at is a form of insult.  Thus the hands down waggling fingers to attract attention and also the numbers on go go dancers mitigating the need for customers to to point. Thus there is a prosidic subtext to the pointing ritual  which like so many aspects of Thai culture is misunderstood by foreigners.

They learnt it of the USA military during the Vietnam war. The inverted Churchillian V for Victory converted to a peace symbol. It has spread like wildfire. I think its sweet.
