Last week I wrote about a Nigerian police extortion effort targeting gay folks. In this week’s installment of police corruption news, here is a video of a couple traffic officers extorting a bribe from a Japanese tourist in Bali.
The tourist’s motorcycle headlight didn’t work (during a daytime ride). The fine for the offense is the US equivalent of $7. The tourist paid a $60 bribe to get out of the ticket.
If you want information about how to handle interactions like this, I have an entire chapter on the topic in my book Choose Adventure.
