If you raise the salary of a policeman, it will not stop him from accepting bribe.
If his salary is RM800, he is happy with a RM10 bribe.
If you increase his salary to RM1800, RM10 no longer look tasty to him! He will become more greedy. So he will PEPSI! (ASK FOR MORE!). So now he need minimum RM20.
RISK & REWARD. If you want me to take more risk, you will have to give me better reward.
Receiving bribe is illegal and thus everytime they do so, they are taking risk. Risk against losing their job = their salary. When their salary is only RM800, risk is small. But if their salary is RM1,800, risk become bigger. So it must come with better reward before they are willing to take the risk. And that bigger reward is BIGGER bribe amount!
And that also explains why small duck police can be bribed at $10 while big cow sarjan and inspector may need RM200. Government officers for kopitiam license or your new house construction drawing might need RM500 while politicians for billion dollar Iskandar projects might need a few millions + some china girls and some donations to UMNO and MCA.
To make sure we can continue to bribe at RM10/policeman, please don’t vote for a police pay raise! Everyone make mistakes in this world, we don’t want to pay more than RM10 for our small mistakes. Wahahahaha.
