The sad aspect of this is, some law enforcement officers will later connive with these robbers and release them back into the street after taking bribe from them. In my own opinion, police officers are the ones complicating the issue of crime in our society. To some unethical officers out there, It could have happened to any one of you, why can’t you fight for justice to ensure that these robbers are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law?. Collecting bribes from criminals may make you feel good for a short period of time but think about future effect. What goes around comes around. May God comfort the family of the victims.
