    If the economy keeps going down like this soon people will be killing each other over a loaf of bread.

    Better this way so the culprits cannot be bailed out through VIP influence.

    We see a good change in police. No crime goes under the carpet now (except political).

    Please do the same with vehicle & vehicle part thieves also. few of them also should be killed.

    EXCELLENT!
    The majority in the Police Dept are superb quality. Please do not allow the Politicians to demoralize them by constantly transferring them on flimsy excuses..
    The Police Commission should act independently.
