Moron Putin tolerated and in fact incouraged corrupted system in the Police. Bribes that go to the top levels of 'chain if command' is a system. Top cops have luxury cars, expensive houses and flats. Meanwhile ordinary policemen have tiny salaries and come generally from the poor. There is a joke: what is the difference between bandits and cops in Russia? The last are uniformed. I have worked with a man several years ago. He had a problem with his son - student jurist (he was drug taker for years). Eventually the lad was graduated and ... became an officer in anti-drugs police unit. Would our dear leader moron Putin (or his puppet so called 'president' Medvedev) make a statement? Few remarks. I live about 1 mile from the place where the crime happened. Few times I had been to the supermarket. Most of injured were wounded in a head. The gun that was used has a criminal background and is being searched for 9 years.
