This is why you have to give it to the Germans. The cops are crooked — no beating around the bush. In America there’s far too much grey area between what’s legit and what’s corrupt. Our system wastes entirely too much energy trying to prove to us that everything is going by the rules and progressing as it should. Shit would just be easier if it were spelled out for us like in Germany. Yes, these guys are the mafia. Yes, they work with police. Yes, if you cross them you will be tied up in a sack and shot in the head and the cops will call it a suicide. Done and done.
America is built on the idea that everything is fair, but wouldn’t it just be easier to admit that it isn’t to end all the uncertainty? Everything’s so secret. If my cousin gets locked up, who’s the cop I gotta bribe to get him out? Who is my Philadelphia local organized crime representative? Do they have a hotline I can call if I need immediate violence and/or to put $400 on the Under? It’s like we’re the land of the free and home of the brave, even though I’m not free to drink a beer outside my apartment and all the brave people got deployed to the Middle East. I mean c’mon America let’s take a page from the German police and make these things a little more obvious. Enough games.
