Bodyguards

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

When I first started to read Cambodian Web Sites (3 yrs ago) I think I read about buying a "General" for $50/mo, on retainer, to act like a "get-out-of-jail-free" card.

Does this service still exist ? (if it ever did) How much "clout" is necessary to command respect from the Police ? ... Thugs ?

Does waving around a Business Card act like a Shield ? :?

For instance if I knew, say, ... the President of the "Canadian Red Cross" would a letter of introduction from them to the Cambodian RC allow a connection the CRC ?

Or joining the Canadian Press Club be similar ? :)

Here's an example:
Saw an exciting standoff between a tuktuk driver and his cop, vs hostel owner and his military officer. Made for interesting breakfast drama

I think that you are daydreaming on this one, at least for the general pat at 50$/mo should be way more expensive than this.
Normal stuff they will send you home not in jail, and the stuff they will send you in jail for are pretty serious ( like opening a topless bar). The free jail card should be a four zero figure.
