What I don't see regularly is any visible police presence or action, so it's hard to take seriously the official pronouncements despite all their talk of commitment, determination, priority and duty....I am sick and tired of seeing tourists being ripped off by lucky posy sellers and guys with the cup and ball game...
Why is nothing being done about it?

As in, aren't they thinking they will outwit "the house" and profit? Unless I'm missing something it seems more like they're getting their comeuppance rather than being scammed.
