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
