    They should move all prisons to isolate areas for the safety of other citizens in the country.

    Why don't the police or the prison authoirity publish their photos on newspapers? It's clear to us that something is fishy.

    ministers should be chosen to form a committe to investigate this incident. Simply because this seems to work in the new SL :-\ Better yet call a few ministers, they will make your job altot easier Mr policeman.
