The police in Bangkok are also harassing tourists. This is a rising trend as police forces around the globe are converted into IRS agents on wheels.

A former police chief of a tiny town in Florida, which was infamous as a speed trap, was finally cleared or white-washed of wrongdoing by a state commission after officers accused him of setting a ticket quota and acting unethically by demanding they ticket everyone.
