There seems to be an escalation of allegations towards Police inaction or even taking the side of the culprits.Let me cite a recent personal instance where I made an entry at a police station ( where even a DIG is stationed) over my neighbour vandalising my boundary fence of over forty years on last Thursdasy. No action has been taken as yet but the culprits continue to insult and threaten me for reporting the matter to the police station.Such is the Police behaviour.Please Mr IGP get your men on attention right through 24 hrs. of the day while on duty.
Your problem should have been solved by the very honest police officers who were in power 40 years ago. What were you doing allOwing people to vandalise your property for forty yerars. You should have dealt with them like a man. Seems like you can only talk big. Grow some balls then you might be able to act like a man.
My Dear Mr.SisiraP,
I can smile through your inability to understand my well intended entry.If you re-read my entry you will understand that the boundary fence is over forty years and the crime was commited only on last Thursday.So you see your blunder and very uncalled for impolite and rude remarks.I have nothing but compassion for you young man.I am over eighty years of age my son. I can afford to smile!
I Have nothing but respect for old people MR.AUJ. I think you have earned the right to take take it easy and not worry about all the bad things that are going on around you.So enjoy all the god things around you and ignore the bad things and I am sure wil feel much younger. Wish you good health and I do apologise for my response to your blog.
Demand for tear gas has been increasing since recently. So jobless people (graduates) can start factories and business to produce tear gas as it will be most used good in Sri Lanka
A good suggestion, let another set of unemployed young men start collecting old tyres (avoiding danger of mosquito breedig) to be sold to would be protestors.A sizeable percentage of unemployment would be resolved. (My dear SisiraP, forgiven and forgotten. Let us continue as good friends,Thank you for your blessings and good wishes.)
