Supplemental income

A police officer in Britain is supplementing his salary quite nicely through racial discrimination settlements with his employer.
Detective Sergeant Gurpal Virdi has been awarded £70,400 after being passed over for promotion for having exposed racial discrimination at Scotland Yard.

In August 2000, Sgt Virdi was awarded £150,000 by a tribunal for racial discrimination by the Met when he was unfairly dismissed from the force.

Sir John Stevens, then Commissioner, apologised and agreed Sgt Virdi should be paid another £90,000 compensation by the force for 'injury to his feelings'.
Good work if you can get it.
