My friends experience with bribe and corruption

India
November 12, 2012 12:48am CST
Day before yesterday, i have a friend who had parked his bike on a foothpath. A cop immediately came to him ask for 200 hundred RS as a bribe amount. He remained adamant and refused to give the bribe instead asked for a receipt. This made the cop blow off and took him to the police station where he asked for 1000 RS and gave him a receipt for the same. Do you think this is right? Is 1000 Rs too much for such a thing? How much amount should it be ? How would you handle this situation?

According to me this is correct. Friend, you have done a mistake by parking your bike in wrong place. For that you are paying the fine. The good thing here is you are paying the fine legally and it is not a bribe. I mean you are preventing the cop to involve in a corruption and you too getting aware about parking your bike in right place...

Police is an organized criminal force and so they always misuse their power for personal gain. They are no longer friends of the society, rather, they are enemies of the society. But the boy must be congratulated for his bravery that he did not give in to that rouge and paid the penalty for his fault which was no doubt a minor fault.
