    Since the USA is not lifting their sanctions on the RSLPF and criminals do not discriminate on whether they attack US or European visitors then we should launch Operation Restore Confidence-The Sequel!
    Bandits running amok and Police afraid to shoot? What is this? Give the criminals bal in their backside.

    Good job officers, but what’s sad is that there’s some idiots out there that would say ‘officer give him a chance or just give him a warning ‘ when will we take a stand and say enough is enough. When WILL we all act and say that this (killings, robberies, rapes, kidnapping ) is wrong and we wouldn’t stand for this. Point fingers and say names. This must stop

    Will they actually be prosecuted? I had a phone stolen, captured on video, the thief then took selfies with my phone which downloaded to my laptop. I filed a police report, and told the police where the phone was physically located. Went there with police, found thief with phone in his possession. Open and shut case? No – Can’t prosecute unless I leave phone for “evidence”. Will this tourist leave his property?
