    big robbers are moving freely with police protection and small ones are being harassed.

    So the man keeps robbing everyone in town and then takes refuge atop a Bo tree. Hmmm ... not a bad idea!

    his problem - he is a small time robber and law breaker. Law breakers should have proper connections, then no one will harass them, even government officials like tax officers will be severely dealt with if they dare to cross path.

    The good thing is that he made it known of the harrassment publicly. Police are famous for going after the innocent and letting the high flyers go scot-free.
