    Have Tamil policemen and policewomen in Tamil areas. This is the first step towards reconcilliation and ethnic harmony.

    No we should have policemen and policewomen of all religons everywhere what you are telling is to isolate the tamils that is totally wrong.

    When police catch these Ava Thugs and bring them to courts, the lawyers attempt to get them out of jail and release them into the community and again and again they behave as worse thugs.
