sharing the loot...

I have always thought that there is some kind of a bribe pool within the banking sector. Together, the managers will collect bribes from lawyers or whoever and at the end of the month they would all gather in some dingy karaoke rooms and account for all the collections. They will then distribute the loot. Same goes with the police. I have that impression as well.

And now it is confirmed. The Star today reports:

"GEMAS: A policeman has lodged a report against all his colleagues including his superiors allegedly over dissatisfaction on how the monthly bribes from those operating illegal activities was being distributed.

In retaliation, one of his superiors, a sergeant, lodged another police report against the policeman, a lance corporal, for allegedly selling station property to scrap dealers.

A source said the lance corporal, in his 40s, was dissatisfied with his superiors for allegedly taking the lion’s share of the bribes while the rank and file received very little."

If not for the gravity of the situation, that piece of news almost sounded funny! God!

Ever wondered why all these years the police have never asked for pay increase?

It's only the politicians & I Raja Polis who want to curry favour with the rank & file, who politicise the cops' pay issue. The rank & file? Never!!
