“What are you doing?” said a policeman as he pointed his finger and shouted at a cameraman who took a short video clip of an argument between policemen and a citizen. The clip has been posted on Facebook recently, showing how the police treated the people. There were around 1,000 likes and 800 shares.
Facebook user Ary Gerrard wrote: “It is normal that Cambodian policemen treat the people this way; they do not care about the citizens.”
Nin Afong said: “The policeman is so cheap; he wants to hit a woman. How cheap he is!.”
However, Phallin Rithy provided tips to avoid bad encounters with the police. “I used to meet the policemen who were money oriented, and my technique was not to argue with them but to speak to them politely so that they wouldn’t treat me badly. I used sweet words with the deep meanings.”
Phan Ravy said: “Dear policemen, please use the law properly; don’t commit misconduct because it is embarrassing. If they are wrong, use the law to resolve.”
