    Wow! Just curious as to how the law applies in this land. So, anyone can run over anyone? What a judiciary system? A disgrace.

    Why? Criminals are getting priority and releasing.... is this the burning issue to attend?

    Typical UNP filled with murderers, thieves and criminals. White Van era started with them with bodies burning the streets back in the ate 80s, least we forgot.
