There is a basic flaw in official corruption. People have to know that you are accepting payments for favors or you get no income from your "side business." If too many people find out, or if the wrong people find out, it is very likely to bite you in the ass. A case in point.

The feds are currently giving a lot of grief to three retired NYPD cops and a former Brooklyn D.A. as part of an investigation into the NYPD gun licensing division. Essentially these people were accepting payments to approve or expedite gun permits, which are not exactly easy to get in the liberal mecca of New York City.

Two criminal complaints were filed against the four people on Tuesday.

I am sort-of guessing that the problem is both wider and deeper than presented thus far.

Rumor has it that Frank Serpico was somehow involved.
