[Letters] Are they really saying they’re being professional?I was reading with great shock and disbelief in today’s (April 10, 2012) Korea JoongAng Daily about the bungled rescue attempt and cover up by the Suwon Police Department. I always thought a police department was made up of mature, intelligent individuals. Therefore, it was more than shocking to read, “ 20 officers of the emergency call center listened to the victim screaming for help for around six minutes.” Furthermore, to have the audacity of asking, “ Are you really saying you’re being raped?”
What type of training are the police and emergency personnel receiving? There should not only be a resignation of the police chief but a total overhaul of the Korean police department’s chauvinistic and primal thinking. As a foreigner in Korea, I always thought this was a safer country than America or Canada. Now I know it has all been a cover-up.
