If you're not prepared for police corruption,  stay out of SE Asia!  The golden rule in Cambodia is to carry a pocket full of 5 USD notes.  If you kill someone you may have to dish out the whole pocket,  but otherwise you're pretty safe with one per infraction.

And in this same location, the number of 'undercover police' touting the sale of cannabis to tourists before the 'arrest'... nothing to see here.
