    Innocent people would not have blocked roads, burn tires, vehicles, and attack police and army who maintain law and order. Brian Rane

    Will you take action against those who behaved beyond their legitimate duties in Weliweriya by instituting an independent inquiry?

    Poor Man Saturday, 10 August 2013 08:40 AM

    Before you warn your troops could you please tell to the public who ordered the shooting in the recent event? We all know Army would not have on their own acted the way they did. Don't try to be good to public by warning troops.

    Well done army teach a lesson to hooligans and law breakers. Learn a lesson from what is happening in Egypt.
    Blocking roads, burning vehicles is not the way to complain about bad water. There are other avenues open to solve such problems without taking law into their hands. Army and police are there to keep law and order. Temples, churches, mosques are places of worship not for the hooligans and criminals to hide. Brian, Colombo
