Even if you’re tired of endless surveys, this one is worth a look. According to a new one in South Korea, gangsters get more satisfaction from their line of work than the police do.

Oh, and did I mention that the gangsters who were surveyed were in JAIL?

That’s right.  The guys sitting in prison were happier than the guys who put them there. It turns out, 79.3 percent of gangsters said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their life in organized crime, compared with about 65 percent of police.  

No word on how happy the gangsters are who are NOT in jail. Here is the story:police.jpg
