We know Russia for vodka and bears. Every time Russia is mentioned, Vladimir Putin’s shirtless escapades do come to mind. But most of us do not associate Russia with incompetent cops. After all, how can the Motherland invade Crimea and protect Putin if the police officers were bad at their jobs? That is why it is surprising to see some Russian cops who are a sad example of what cops should never be. We are, however, not surprised. Russia has time and again outdone itself in showcasing itself as a country of perfect irony.
