Like most other Indians, my opinion of my government and its various agencies is very poor indeed. It is one of the wonders of the modern age how this nation gets by while the guys in charge mess up financial data, forget which country they represent at the UN, and in every other way get by in a thick, stinking haze of moronic incompetence.
Delhi Police, I am glad to say, is no different. If they are the first line of defence that the capital against law and order problems then Delhi--women, childern and all--is screwed. Kindly peruse the following story from the Times of India website. And weep.
Idiots run this country.
NEW DELHI: On Tuesday, police commissioner B K Gupta told reporters he had spent hours researching sticky bombs. Officers then distributed printouts which ostensibly explained what a sticky bomb is.
The printout stated, "Sticky bombs are a type of explosives crafted from one Bomb and 5 Gel. At point blank range, it can cause a total of 100 damage to mobs and 200 to the player". It also listed 'Statistics' as: Damage 100, Max Stack 50, Shoot Speed 5, Use Time 24, Sell 1.
These seem unusual ingredients for making a bomb. A net search showed the matter seemed to have been downloaded from Terraria Wiki, used by gamers who play online game Terraria.
I don't know what to say. I really don't.
Hours researching sticky bombs? Wanker.
If you live in Delhi, I hope you feel safe knowing that your police force is infested with imbeciles.
