Penis Enlargements and the Indonesian Police Force...

A recent article in The Jakarta Globe draws out some interesting links between penis enlargement, the Indonesian National Police Force (Polri), the separatist movement in Papua, and serving the public. It seems that any man wanting to join up and serve the public as a police officer in Papua will be required to answer a question about whether or not they have had a penis enlargement.

The argument according to the Police Chief, Bekto Suprapto, is that an enlarged penis is a problem during training (and presumably during service). I am sure, if pressed, Suprapto would be willing to elaborate as to exactly what sort of training the police do in Papua that makes an enlarged penis problematic.

However, this poses some interesting questions for recruitment officers as they search to 'enlarge' the ranks of serving police officers. First, is there a set of penis size standards that prospective candidates must meet in order to proceed through the selection process? Then the obvious questions tend to, what is the deal for men who, without treatment, are already well-endowed? And finally, is there a corresponding set of size related criteria for women and the size of their breasts?

In any event, if they do not make the grade as police officers then there is a good chance they might be snapped up by the porn industry where it seems that size is respected as an asset rather than an obstacle.

So, what about the court decision that seemingly reinstates the case against Chandra M Hamzah and Bibit Samad Rianto?

Hi Rob,
I am not sure that the Police know the actual reason, unless of course if the training includes wearing a Koteka ha ha ha ha (lol).
Re your last sentence abour Bibid and Chandra, it is not the police's fault that the court reinstate their case, but it was the Attorney General Office's, they should have declared the case ineligible for prosecution (deponeer?) based on SBY's wish to settle the case out of court.c

@ Harry...

Not suggesting it is the police's fault that the case was "re-instated". I was alluding to the fact that there might be more important issues facing the Indonesian law enforcement regime than penis size though.
