    This is mere lawlessness which can easily be nipped in the bud by our law enforcers. This has definitely been brought about by the failure by our law enforcement agents to curtail those thugs in all our urban bus stations and markets who extort money from bus drivers and marketeers under the very noses of these law enforcers. These rural thugs are just following in these foot steps.
    How can a country be governed like this, where some citizens are above the law?

    If lawlessness starts from the top, who can bring it to halt? Does not the fish start rotting from the head?
