Russian President Dmitry Medvedev dismissed on Tuesday the chief of the Moscow police, Col.-Gen. Vladimir Pronin, following a shooting involving an off-duty officer in a supermarket earlier this week.

Medvedev earlier sacked police Maj.-Gen. Viktor Ageyev, who headed the police department in Moscow's Southern Administrative District, where one of his senior officers, Tsaritsino district police chief Denis Yevsyukov, shot three people dead early on Monday.

Now, that is the real problem..what you post is correct..a dictatorship that doesn't have faith in it's own people only supports those who support the regime..and that, encourages such abuse and superiority over the masses..the entire mindset has to change, and unfortunately, the russian mindset is set in it's way and manner..of course, Putin can always turn to NATO to provide fair, honest, and accountable police operations and training..Ha!
Now there's a thought!:o )

STA you are being naive. Its not a mindset, Russian police is corrupt but as long as officers make $300 dollars a month you cant expect them to be angels - they have so many opportunities to double triple quadriple their sallaries, that temptation is too high. Untill they get decent pay you cant expect them to be fair and honest Im afraid there is no simple solution.
But, leadership starts at the top..setting the example..granted, pay does mean a lot..however, it is the quality that also counts..screening, higher standards, and quick and severe punishment for those guilty of corruption and abusive conduct..that would weed out the bad weeds..

Agree.
It is difficult for me to understand why this has not already happened..unless the parctice of abuse, even at the top levels do not want their police to be fair and looked up to with respect by the people, or, if they are simply government agents acting on behalf of a government that controls and enforces laws simply by fear..
