Russian Policewomen to Be Disciplined for Wearing Short Skirts
http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/russian-policewomen-to-be-disciplined-for-wearing-short-skirts/502379.html ^

The Interior Ministry has launched a crackdown to combat the trend toward shrinking hemlines witnessed among Russia's female police officers, Izvestia reported Monday.

The ministry imposed a ban against all uniform modifications in response to the growing number of shortened skirts worn by women, and the tendency of their male counterparts to hack off their shirt sleeves.

In addition to modifications, police are now prohibited from mixing their uniforms with civilian clothing, and from wearing wrinkled items, Izvestia reported, citing a decree handed down by Deputy Interior Minister Sergei Gerasimov to all heads of departments.

Gerasimov warned that such liberties taken with police uniforms only serve to undermine the authority of the Interior Ministry, and to discredit the police force as a whole.

"When you meet people, the first thing you see is their clothing, and for a police officer fulfilling his duties, it is crucial to have a tidy and neat appearance. From time to time, we have seen instances of officers improperly wearing their uniforms. … Heads [of departments] must pay more attention to the appearance of their subordinates," Gerasimov was quoted by Izvestia as having said in the decree.

Gerasimov encouraged all police officers to reacquaint themselves with and strictly adhere to uniform requirements, and ordered department heads to inspect officer attire before the start of shifts each day.

Mikhail Pashkin, chairman of the coordination council of the police officers' union, said in comments to Izvestia that police officers were not to blame for untidy clothing. The complaints listed by Gerasimov stemmed from the failure of the Interior Ministry to provide enough dressing rooms for police.

As for the problem of female officers shortening their skirts, Pashkin said he did not see any reason to complain.

"Perhaps the girls want to get married. Incidentally, they are thinking about the demographic situation," Pashkin said.

Chasing perps in high heels, always a bad strategy. They look more like prostitutes than police. LOL!

Makes me want to do something to get arrested.

Anyway, it's short-lived. Soon enough we will be back in the Russian nine month winter.

Donning flame suit:

Whenever I go on Asian airlines almost every girl is above average and I’d say 1/3 are alllmost model material.

And they’re NICE.

When I go on US airlines they’re older and fat. And nasty.

And it’s a guarantee that the one or two guys are rolling their eyes, scoffing, mincing around with their butts out and flapping their arms around.

WHAT GIVES ON US AIRLINES —dayum.

If Russian police women beat you to a pulp would they still be guilty?

La Miserables will sue if you appear to favor a particular physique. I’ve heard of American girls who are 5ft3 at 246lb, demanding to get a straight answer why their multiple applications have produced zero response from employers like Victoria’s Secret, Abercomrobie and Fitch, and Hooters Restaurants. That kind of person is ‘shopping for trouble’. “Hi! Please speak clearly into my cell recorder and state again, for the record; exactly why should I not expect to be called for an interview? Why?!!” as she brushes the doughnut powder off of her stretch pants.

The man on the ground looks like all that legs-xsposure is giving him a heart attack.

Not the worst way to go, IMO.

WHAT GIVES ON US AIRLINES?”

Years ago I flew for TWA. We had weigh in before every flight and total inspection. Shined shoes, polished nails, hair clean and neatly coifed. Gain more than 2 pounds from previous weigh in and you didn’t fly until you lost it. Also when you got married you were grounded which is what happened to me.

Several years later they unionized and they grandfathered in anyone who wanted to come back. Just total downhill from there. Old, fat, crabby ladies are not what you want on any flight.

Good looking flight attendants who are 100% classy looking females - just one other thing that’s gone and won’t ever come back.

At least the policewomen over there still want to look like women. The ones here are happier the more they look like men.
