After several reforms in the police forces implemented in the past few years in Russia the number of police officers has decreased practically by a half. The lack of officers is perceived in all the departments from the traffic police to the drug control service. This appears particularly alarming against the backdrop of the criminal situation in Russia consistently deteriorating. In the summer 2014 there were a series of seemingly senseless and evidently ruthless killings on Moscow region motorways. More then fourteen drivers were murdered. After a few months of unsuccessful search by the police some outraged local street-racers ganged together to handle the problem in their own sweet way.
