Police Dress in Doctor Costumes, Trick Citizens

Funny Doctor Costume

Here’s a bit of odd news: Undercover police in Turkey dressed up as doctors, wearing white lab coats and stethoscopes, in order to test their citizens.

They knocked on doors and asked people to take fake “blood pressure” pills. According to this report, the police grew quite alarmed when 86 out of 100 people swallowed the pills without question.

Police later returned to warn residents to be more cautious. The police pills were harmless placebos. But a local gang had been using the same technique to give people heavy sedatives and then burgle them.

This just goes to show the power of costumes. Those sneaky burglars, what a dirty trick!
