Extra income, judge asking for bribe!

A judge was caught in an entrapment operation while asking for bribe from a person. The judge was asking for a bribe for the person to get a favorable decision in court. the former was asking for thousands of pesos. If the justice system is corrupt, where else could people get justice? It is sad that that these things are happening considering that these people are highly respected and spent many years of their lives studying on how to uphold the law and remder just decisions. This is a serious offense to the people and must be dealt with unconditionally. There are enough corrupt people in the government and the justice department must be spared from it. Regards

Unfortunately, this is world wide. Some humans are so greedy, and that goes for the wealthy, that fair decisions are sometimes disregarded for personal gains. It would be interesting to see if that judge ha recently passed judgement on a pauper who stole some food to feed his starving kids.

That judge should be deprived of license to his profession. He should also go to jail so that others will not follow suit. Asking for bribe! What a shame. He is using his position to earn more and sacrificing justice for extra money in his pocket! What a shame!
