Policemen more dangerous than criminals

Letters, Normal

The National, Wednesday November 6th, 2013

 AFTER reading about police officers involved in assault and rape, I am now more afraid than ever (Oct 31). 

As a son of a retired senior police sergeant, I always defend the actions of policemen saying “after all they are human”. 

However, this allegation is something amounting to insanity and brings shame to the police force.

How can someone who is trained to uphold the law and protect the citizen of a country turn around and rape the one he is supposed to protect? 

Who shall we run to? 

Even the police officers cannot be trusted.

As an ordinary citizen with a family, I am warning everyone to be alert when a policeman comes around to your area.

They are far more dangerous than criminals because they come with power from the government.
