Here's an idea whose time may have come.
Indonesia is a surprisingly violent place. The place seethes with labour unrest. The police have recently been involved in shoot-outs with terrorists, so they are often involved in quasi-military operations against ordinary people, such as labour activists, shipyard workers, and you wonder how much of it is really moslem terrorists.
As a result, the ever-vigilant Indonesian authorities are tightening the controls they have on their police.
(Reuters) - Forget about getting a job as a police officer in Indonesia's Papua if you have had your penis enlarged. You won't get it, according to local media reports ... An applicant "will be asked whether or not his vital organ has been enlarged," said Papua police chief Bekto Suprapto, quoted on local website Kompas.com.
"If he has, he will be considered unfit to join the police or the military."
The ban was applied since the unnatural size causes "hindrance during training," said police spokesman Zainuri Lubis in Jakarta, quoted by news portal Detik.com.
This is an interesting approach. When I think of it, I have never had a reason to believe that Toronto police suffer from an excess of testosterone. They seem to prefer that all their alpha males are female. Nonetheless, I think the idea has some merit.
Papuans use a local technique to achieve the enlargement, according to a sexologist quoted by local newspaper Jakarta Globe, wrapping the penis with leaves from the "gatal-gatal" (itchy) tree so that it swells up "like it has been stung by a bee," the expert said.
