    Have you seen how these judicial officials travel on the road? They are a law unto themselves. I salute the brave Police Sergeant. Shame on the supposed to be big wigs without spines.

    So, why was the police officer scolding?

    No wonder in a country where the justice applies only to a group of people. If this happens to a common man he can do nothing other than going to Geneva.
