Step Out Of The Car And Drop That Pin!

On our way to lake Hinuma Monday morning we were stopped by the latest in Japanese law enforcement. Forget "Robocop". Always at the cutting edge of technology, Japan has a light weight, quickly deployable alternative that is much cheaper, more mobile, and very effective (providing you have a compliant citizenry). It's "Inflato-Cop"!



Well, actually there were two of these next to a Mobil gasoline station. They are effective - if only in catching one's attention and eliciting a laugh. Obviously, the location has a visibility problem and so has invested in numerous signs, flashing lights, and even "Inflato-Cops" to garner what business they can.

Don - you still have the right to say, "don't taser me, Bro".

Moody - careful, these cops have inflated egos.
