    Why did my friend have to die like that by the hands of a gangster but when a gangster dies by the hands of a policeman then the whole story gets blown out of proportion. When will the government learn that the gangs are getting away with murder because our justice system failed us all. Try and prove me wrong. Why must I as a police official keep on risking my life when the government don't want to sort out the problem at the root.
