Meet the worst police decoy ever?

May 23, 2011

Blog Guy, you’ve written a lot about police decoys in the past. I guess they have to be highly skilled to do that job, right?

Sure, some of them are, but others are just phoning it in.

You take this “undercover” Israeli cop in these photos. The caption tells us he’s “dressed as a Palestinian woman.”

Really? He puts on a fricking dress and a scarf, and he thinks he can pass as a woman?

I mean, the wrists are kind of a giveaway, and no self-respecting Palestinian woman holds a semiautomatic like that.

And I haven’t even mentioned “her” most obvious mistake.

What’s that, Blog Guy?

She’s opening the car door herself. Real chicks with guns always wait for a gentleman to open it for them.
