Chinese police in the port city of Tianjin got themselves a new vehicle: a brand-new Mini Cooper in police livery and with white police license plates. Netizens (the official Chinglish word for ‘internet activist’) noted the strange police vehicle and actually went to the nearby police station for an explanation about why their tax-money was spend on an obviously useless police car.

For those of my readers who live in Tianjin, the location is Dongting Road, Tanggu, Binhai New Area. Anywayz, back to the story. Those curious netizens didn’t get passed the hallway, they were told to bugger off, ‘no comment’.

They didn’t give up and called the police station, then they were told the Mini Cooper was a ‘gift from the factory’. This sure is strange since the Mini ain’t made in China. However, the netizens didn’t get any more. The police-Mini is now everywhere on the Chinese internet. Heck, the Tianjin police better rebadge it as a Lifan 320, like their colleagues in Fengchenggang did with a Benz…

Note police station in the background, that indeed is a very local ‘neighborhood-station’ like they are many in China in large compounds and residential areas.
