Cutting the Tail

From Thairath, August 27, 2011
The cartoon headline: Good or bad, afraid of the tail to appear [meaning the tendency of people to take on animal habits and break rules]
Chalerm cuts the tail of the police chief. On the body of the policeman: Gambling pool / Bribery / Drugs / National Police Bureau
On the sign being hold by the mouse: Release political prisoners
The caption from the mouse: Return justice

[This refers to the National Police Chief’s transfer and his replacement with Thaksin’s brother-in-law. This cartoon is notable for the extremely rare positive portrayal of Chalerm Yoobamrung. Update: Note the comment below – this is apparently not a positive portrayal.]
