Minute by minute; and day by day, it is becoming exceptionally evident that, unless something is done urgently, either to appease the protesters or to show that the authorities are seriously set to meet out justice no matter whose ox is gored. “A little leaven leavens the whole lump”, so goes the saying. Now, we see that anytime such senseless act of killing takes place, and the authorities are slow to intervene, the masses will take to the streets.
To curb this trend, government must respond swiftly. Especially when there are video clips flying everywhere showing the evidence of the killing. Delay portrays complicity or complacency. And that’s when and why you have public outrage such as in Minnesota and elsewhere.
We do hope that peace be restored soonest.
