End this rampant criminal behaviour

The moral standards of our country are going to the dogs. We have inept “professionals’; badly behaved university students, corrupt politicians, ineffective law enforcers.

We have people who kill and maim and damage public property as if they had a right to do so. A sick person goes to hospital for treatment and is injected with the wrong medicine; the patient pays with his or her life, or loses a limb.

Young hooligans studying at the universities at the tax payers’ expense maim fellow students and damage campus property. Conscription and a military training is the answer for such persons. Let them do their motherland a service by being put on the battlefield to fight the LTTE.

It is obvious the police are under pressure and dare not take action against corrupt and murderous politicians. Children are kidnapped and killed. The Dharmadeepa is now Adharmadeepa.

Will our country be a safe place to live, in peace and tranquillity, even if the war is won?
We should act fast to put a stop to all this rampant criminal behaviour.

Concerned Elderly Citizen, Nugegoda
