Loose-cannon cops go by own rules, break others

A pair of military police officers are in custody after delivering a little extrajudicial justice on Wednesday in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district. Police say the off-duty duo were leaving a nightclub when a group of men blocked their car and kicked it before running off.

Spotting a group of teens later, the pair decided they had their culprits, stopped, and punched and slapped the lot of them until local cops arrived.

At that point they bolted, only to be apprehended after destroying a moto in a traffic accident. RASMEY KAMPUCHEA
