    Seems to me the police have got their act together since the dismissal of their big wigs who were so corrupt and impotent. Congrats SAPD and keep up the good work

    Yip, the closer the manguang story gets the more frequent the "BIG HIT" robberies will happen. Somebody must pay for all the amenities that will be used by all the deligates ("deli gatte"). And this will happen all over the country cause there will be deligates from all over the country taht needs money to sponsor them !!
