China's Police Women on Inline Skates with Three Inch Heels for Backup Elegant Authority, Plus Checks with Stripes

Now for more silliness about skating police around the world. A few years back it was the Paris police, now we have candidates from China and Israel. We loves us some skating so don't gets us wrong, skating is great...but not necessarily the way to chase criminals. However, as a light and easy patrol with interactions with the friendly locals, sure, it could be great. 

The China story is funny for the high heels and the Israel video is good to listen to for the stupid things the narrator says. I hahed at checks and stripes. Credit to eebee for earlier disgust at some of this topic before, making it stick in my brain better.

Confiskated! 71-Year-Old Skater Who Had His Rollerblades Taken by the Cops Gets Day in Court

He might be a danger to himself, or not, but it's sad to see one of us old guys have his wheels taken by the Police. This retired double-pusher (see photo) might be exposing a shock of white hair, but he seems under control. I don't know the facts, but the quotes are good...

The 71-year-old will now have to prove he is not a hazard to pedestrians where he skates in Southport, Merseyside.

100 Police on Rollerblades (Inline Skates) Guard Olympic Torch Relay in Paris

OK it's not too important, but I'm always fascinated by any mention of the inline skating police in Paris. This seems a not so wonderful way to catch criminals, so I guess their duty is limited to situations where they're just a helpful resource. Only in movies where the thiefs run straight down a sidewalk or road conveniently would the skates be that great for the chase. However, being included in any honor guard that includes motorbikes and firefighters is pretty nice. We're on a thin schedule of reinforcement, we skaters!
