Department of modest expectations

From Yahoo! News:

Police patrolling the red-light district of the Belgian capital have been ordered to stop visiting brothels and drinking in bars when on duty.

“These officers think their duty hours are to be used to drink alcohol in bars, practice sports…, visit brothels or massage parlors, and entertain (intimate) relationships with residents of the neighborhood during their patrol,” said the letter from a local police chief.

“It is only by setting a good example that the police can make itself respected,” the letter said, urging officers to adopt more conservative behavior.
