Corruption Of Malaysian Police

11 Dec

Brought up as a typical Singaporean, I have always stereotyped the Police force across the causeway in Malaysia as corrupted. This YouTube video that I came across just enforce my stereotype against their Police force. While I am sure that there are bound to be officers who are vigilant, an awful number of them seems to be corrupted. Either the salary is far too low to make a living or it is just plain greed. I have a friend from university who goes up to Johore, the Malaysian state nearest to Singapore often and she mentioned that Malaysian police like to focus on foreigners, especially Singaporeans, as we can afford bigger bribes. She has already been a victim of the corruption before when the police officer tried to give her a ticket when she just stopped her vehicle to pick up a friend.
