    Lot of bragging by the top guardians of the law that they on a daily basis apprehend those who flout the law. How come that several murders take place where hired criminals are roaming and extinguishing lives amidst the close proximity of Police stations? etc, There is a strained relationship between the public and the guardians of the law otherwise why cannot these hired thugs be apprehended when roadblocks are installed at several important points. The answer is that the public are not co-operating otherwise why do most vehicles flash their lights giving the signal to all other road users that there is some type of checking. By this the criminals will use this information to avoid these places. Analyzing this phenomenon the only conclusion is that when operational exercises are done it should be borne in mind that the enforcers should not take the public into custody unless there are good reasons. Also any operation should not be publicized daily to bring fear to the public !!!!
