This American Life on Cop Corruption

Check out this week's This American Life podcast (see my link on the right). It interviews a New York police officer who secretly recorded every conversation he had while on the job for 17 months. Suffice to say, a lot of interesting stuff happened as a consequence, including him being forcibly thrown into a psych ward by his fellow officers. I've been out of the U.S. too long to have a good perspective on this kind of stuff, but man, the U.S. seems to be really in crapper these days.
