No thought of ‘moral hazard’ when encouraging police to kill drug dealers

I would have thought that one of the most serious considerations in nationally adopting the policy, in the Philippines now and in Thailand a few years ago, of encouraging the police to randomly gun down anyone suspected of being involved in or connected with the drug trade, is simply not fully taken into account.

I refer, of course, of the effect on the general moral fibre of the nation’s police force after several years of being allowed to shoot 

citizens dead without fear of recrimination.
