Abe Vigoda's Ghost: [i39.tinypic.com image 800x533]
Wenchmaster: She's one of the Carabinieri- Italy's quasi-military national police. We used to call them "Care Bears" when I was stationed there.CSB- one of my neighbors in Italy (another American) had his car stolen. He reported it to the police, who forwarded the complaint to the Care Bears. A few hours later, three Care Bears showed up on the landing outside his apartment with a scruffy looking Italian. They said they had caught the Italian driving the stolen car, and he had claimed that the car had borrowed the car with permission. When the American said that was not true, the Care Bears thanked him, then beat the crap out of the Italian in front of him before hauling the criminal away./CSBCarabinieri are well armed and fairly tough. They routinely tangle with the Mafia, and they're largely the reason personal crime is scarce in most of Italy. There is lots of property crime, but relatively few armed robberies or muggings.They also do what we called a "lollipop patrol". Two cars parked on opposite sides of the road- one car about fifty meters ahead of the other. The Care Bears in the car farther back in traffic get out with submachine guns and a stick topped with a red and white circle (the lollipop"). The Care Bears in the forward car also get out with their subguns. The Care Bear with the lollipop will point it at a car passing by to flag them down for a random search. If that car fails to stop, the other three will fire into it.Care Bears do not FARK around.
