Whether journalist or normal citizens, the Police Monkeys have no right to assault anybody. This case should be rigorously investigated and Police Monkeys should be jailed.

I see no future to our beloved nation. The Rajapakses are totally responsible for this situation. They should go. The more they stay in power is bad for our country.

Shame on Army for this cowardly act. Law enforcement are there to protect the people not to assault them. What a dark day in SL.

Most of the comments come from those who think they will have a better future with the opposition. Good luck to them. If you join a violent protest then you should expect to get injured.
