Title: Police road blocks
Comments: The report on the illegal road blocks by the police that took place in 2015 just goes to show that the police here have now become without any doubt a law unto themselves.They are however cutting off their noses to spoil their face as this report is now going to harden the attitudes of the public against the police here.

I wonder what other illegal activity the police will think of implementing when they next seek a pay rise.
