You see the only we can stop this brutal killing is by showing them example, by killing anyone who murder somebody weather they are thieves or not, nobody should take the Law into their hands.also the police should stop the corruption if somebody report a case dont take bribes,even if they do one year in jail with hard labor is better,they can wed sidewalks, clear the gutter’s,dig wells for the people in the villages without drinking water,they can use them to develop ghana, but instead they take bribes and release them,what do you think the youth is gonna do the next time they catch a Thief, they will kill them like they do always,because they no that the police and Judges are taken bribs,is about time we enforce our law’s.
