Corruption in the United States
The 2012 Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index ranked the United States 19 out of 176 countries. Recently, corruption has been a growing problem in the United States. The federal government has been suspected of censoring internet news reports through the PRISM surveillance program, which the federal government claims is used for defense purposes. In addition, heavy drug trafficking and organized crime has led to corruption of police officers and judges in some cases.
