So, this is in Vladikavkaz, the capital of republic of North Ossetia, in Russia, in North Caucasus. The young lady is sitting in the car, with her friends, and a knife in her hand. She is openly threatening the traffic policemen who pulled them over: "You know I can stab you with this? I can fucking kill you both right here. If I had a gun, I could shoot you both in the head, and NOTHING will happen to me?"

And instead of dragging the arrogant brat out on her ass, the cops are reasoning with her, begging her to cooperate. Why? And why is she so sure she can not only behave this way, but get away with it?

Well, because a.) this is Russia, where wealth and rank/title rule; and b.) she is Karina Kumekhova, the daughter of Rustam Kumekhov, who holds a rank equal to a general and is a now retired head prosecutor of N. Ossetia (like state attorney).

Here he is handing out an award to an underling


In Russia, if you have held a powerful position, even after you leave such a position, provided you leave it under good circumstances (honorable retirement), it's authority and privilege linger not only upon yourself, but your pathetic, spoiled kids too...

Amazingly fucked up place...
