    We don't need a Hitler if we enforce the law to the very letter with no special treatment to any one then our country will become the safest place to live on earth. We really appreciate the work undertaken by the police force. Otherwise how can we stop this lawless situation when the thugs direct the gun at the police armed forces. This is something never happened in our country.
