Dubai cops get a crime-fighting Lamborghini

The Dubai police department just went from zero to awesome in under three seconds.

Think that the only cops who ride around in supercars are Crockett and Tubbs? Wrong!

The emirate’s police force now has a Lamborghini Aventador in its fleet. You could buy it for about $400,000. A local newspaper in the United Arab Emirates reports that the new ride is part of a makeover of the police force’s stable of cars.

Don't Forget the Benz and Aston

Activists of the Right Sector movement and their supporters gather outside the parliament building to demand the immediate resignation of Internal Affairs Minister Arsen Avakov, in Kiev March 27, 2014. A prominent Ukrainian far-right activist, part of a hard-line nationalist movement that played a leading role in the overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovich, was shot dead by police overnight, authorities said on March 25. The Interior Ministry said Oleksander Muzychko, also known as Sashko Bily, was killed by officers of the 'Sokol' special unit as he tried to escape from a cafe in the western Ukrainian region of Rivne.
