Is it ethical to tape corruption? I don't know. It was an expensive exercise for me (see previous posts), but on two occasions I correctly discerned that I was walking into doubtful situations, and I taped them. With hindsight, it was justified. If I hadn't recorded those sessions, I could now have three senior officers testifying against me, with no defence. But what worries me is, have other people experienced the same, without any defence? And how long has this gone on? OBSERVATION: And then there is the question, what were the pressures which led to the corruption in the first place, in my case? Or what are they, generally speaking? And (a question that I can answer) how much needed to happen before I decided to tape it?
