Don't mess with Henan cops
Netease picks up a photo story that most of today's newspapers have run with: a demonstration of force by the police in Zhengzhou, capital of Henan Province. The image reproduced here shows a police officer with a 'net gun' used to catch dogs, and protective armor.

In addition to the scary Robocop outfit, Zhengzhou's police have also recently demonstrated the gun skills of their plain clothes officers. This article has photos of police officers with guns, and the explanation that "when there is a serious public security case, the police officers can protect the citizens by wounding or killing the criminals".

Comments on Robocops to catch dogs

Lest we forget 1987's other justice system parable action flick -- a net gun surprisingly similar to this was used to capture future Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger in Running Man, which co-starred future Governor of Minnesota Jesse "the Body" Ventura. And, for some reason, Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac.
