Unlike the previous rungu wielding soja, these are high tech. The rungu has given way to a beeper and a mirror on pole.
They no longer check people leaving buildings for valuables they might have nicked. No. Their duty is to go round cars and appear to look under it using the mirror. At the mall if you are in a car they check the car. Not the passenger. If you are a pedestrian they parse you over with the beeper. If it beeps you are good to go. If it doesn't it has a problem.
At a building entrance, if you have a bag, they will beep you up with the beeper but they will not check the bag.
And then jukistopia wonders why shanties are mushrooming all over
