Muslim police corruption warning

The Guardian ran a story on Saturday concerning an internal Metropolitan Police report that concluded that Muslim police officers are more liable to corruption that white officers.

The report said that family pressures, the cultural belief that supporting your extended family is a duty and the cash economy of the Asian community all combine to increase the risk of "misconduct and criminality".

The Muslim Council of Britain said corruption in any officer should be addressed, "but just to make a blanket comment on the (Muslim) community is not good at all, especially in this period" of muslim sensitivity over allegations that some of its members may be plotting terror attacks.

I wonder if this means that the police will stop running their racist Asian-only recruitment drives and accelerated promotion programmes?
