The Daily Mail (UK) published a photo purportedly of an unarmed Thai policeman with a police dog that is packing a Glock pistol in a holster strapped to its side.
I am very skeptical. It makes no sense that the officer would be unarmed but his dog has a pistol. I think this was either a joke or they were trying to entrap criminals into stealing what is probably a cheap airsoft Glock clone.
Many thanks to Jay for the tip.
