The middle finger

The Indonesian police, like other Indonesian state institutions, likes to communicate through banners, posters, and murals. Police communication through murals is in fact a contradictio in terminis. Urban art – as graffiti is – is per definition anarchist in nature, it comes and goes. See here for a Jakarta Post article on police murals, unfortunately online the photos are not available. The inappropriate choice of medium makes communication impossible.
