I find it very odd that you will go to jail to fight corruption in the USA (your country) but give council on how to promote corruption amongst law enforcement officials in other countries.
Your holier than though attitude and pious charade is completely hypocritical.
If you have any guts whatsover you would apply your same principles when you are in another country and stand tall for your beliefs. By simply paying bribes you are doing absolutely nothing to help the situation in other countries.
And the old excuse that "even the locals do it", "I heard this from a Mexican", etc... offer you no justification.
This is exactly the kind of double standard and bipolar behavior that makes it tough for travelers.
