What happened to macho, rude, flippant and aggressive policeman of Delhi ?
It depends on relative strength of organization and will to fight. Lawyers have organized and beaten up police across the country many times. Police beat up helpless citizens. If helpless citizens organize and fight back with vigour, police may back off. During communal riots (and other situations) usually one community gets away with murder because they organize and are willing to fight. Police gives them an easy ride.
Our police forces have decayed and are not fit for purpose. IPS and political interference has destroyed the police. Time for a radical revamp.
