We all know that there are bad cops in any police force. Without them, those tv series on NYPD and NOPD and action movies involving hero detectives and rotten cops would not happen. So it's good that our IGP has come out to admit that the PDRM still have officers who are on the take. The only problem with his statement is the 1 per cent he pluck, seemingly from thin air. People have started wondering where the 1 per cent cops are. At the top?

Other professions have their own share of bad apples: lawyers, judges, politicians. There are journalists and mercenaries, elite bloggers and belit bloggers, football pros on the take, and even at home you have good husbands and rogue ones.
What's important is us knowing that our police force are getting rid itself of the crooks in blue. It will be a hard and long fight but I have no doubts that the PDRM can do it. The important thing is to do everything - not "something" - do go after the corrupt cops. The IGP can't be vague and all stakeholders from the politicians to the press must be engaged. Most of all, the force needs to work with members of the public at all times.
But are we - members of the public - ready to help them get rid of those crooked and corrupt officers?
