It’s a bit hard to see, but here is a poster demonstrating one of the ways the police subdue criminals here, but in this case it’s actually train station staff grabbing some dude who didn’t pay his train fare.
To minimize contact and risk of injury they have these big claws. Two cops can get one on either side and you’re basically stuck.
You know you take your mobile gaming seriously when you use two devices at the same time. I couldn’t figure out if he was playing two different games, playing with himself, or using one for information on the other. Illegally taking his photo was as much a risk as I could justify.

I’ll keep doing my best, and hopefully improve throughout 2018. Thank you to everyone.
