Enforcing the law or eroding it?

It is a small incident and happens many times a day. I was driving on a side street in Bangkok's Sam Yarn district.

The streets are narrow and alternately one way. I had to stop to let a policeman pass. He was going the wrong away and appeared in no urgent hurry (he had couple of bags of Styrofoam food containers). How sad! As I said, not a big deal, but if our own cops ignore the law, then who will obey them?
