    The savagery of this murder should rock everyone’s conscience. This is time for concrete action not idle rhetoric. These criminals are displaying a depraved indifference to human life. The dark and dimly lit areas that people frequently traverse should be brightly lit by street lamps. The PM is perplexingly mute. He should convene a national televised address outlining an immediate plan of action to try to remedy this untenable situation. The people’s concerns and fears need to be assuage by concrete crime fighting efforts and policies.

    Imagine the anguish and emotional trauma that the criminals have inflicted on the victim’s children who would be waiting for their mother’s arrival only to realize days later that she was violently murdered by a predator on the prowl (for sex). How does a normal man maintain an erection whilst trying to force himself on a woman who is saying no and resisting him with all her strength and life? How would that man feel if he was pounced upon by another male intent on sodomising him without his consent? I say that we should get rid of the criminals in our midst and that we should oil the gallows and the legal mechanisms that send criminal predators to the gallows. We must purge this land of the criminal element that is stripping sweet Helen of her tranquillity, dignity and precious life. Enough is enough!
