Gang above the law in policeman beating

Gang above the law in policeman beating

The iron fist of the law couldn’t stand up to four irreverent gangsters on Tuesday when they delivered a severe beating to a policeman in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district.

While the 39-year-old officer was sleeping, four gangsters riding by on a moto woke the man by throwing trash at him.

The officer advised the rabble to stop, but instead, the gun-toting thugs delivered a series of blows to the man’s head. More police were called to the scene, but the attackers escaped. Koh Santepheap
