Those are past times. Especially after the EU membership application and passing of compliance laws. We can't even keep the thieves in prison now, heh.
Real story: Couple years back, I needed to renew driving license, and faced some problems at the station. I got pissed and talked a bit harsh. First they threw me out of the station
then they grabbed me and dragged back in. One of them showed his baton and told me he would have stick it up in my a.. if not for EU laws. I told him that's why exactly we needed them in the first place. Some quarrel and they threw me out for good. He would have been suspended if I went to the prosecutor with it.
Anyway, you will be safe. Let me know if you visit Istanbul!
