    Finally! That's the best idea the President has had yet. Good use of death penalty. I suggest public lynching before hanging too.

    First your Excellency have to implement the bold assurance to hang drug dealers and then we can have some hope in this second statement.

    Mr. President, history will remember you as an incompetent President ever.If I were you, soon after I heard about this JO's drama, I would have appointed SF as the minister of Law and Order, bet not a single person from this JO would have attended this rally, including ts organizers. You are still not late, show the public that you wear clothes.
