Did you hear the most recent This American Life, about a cop who recorded other cops? (This part starts around 16 minutes in.) He recorded the cops downgrading serious crimes to improve their statistics... and giving orders for creating smaller crimes in order to meet their quotas. It's an amazing piece... especially when you hear the recording of the moment when his police brothers showed up at his apartment to have him locked up in an asylum and thereby discredited.
