What Our Cops get Paid To Do

In a bizarre incident where a US journalist was beaten up by the Delhi police for apparently no fault of his except not knowing Hindi perhaps or being confused; he has asked for a compensation of half a million US Dollars for the 'torture' he underwent. How many times is an Indian treated this way? For us Indians, we would consider it lucky if the police would let us go with only such beatings and not charge us with some unheard of crime as well.
I hope the Delhi police has to pay the price and are taught a lesson. They should realise that this is no way to treat anybody, be it American or Indian.

Also hope that it does not get twisted into an 'Indian/ American' issue! 'A big noise is made only when an American is beaten up, what about Indians?' kind of argument would be futile and achieve nothing.
