What is troubling to me is that our political parties keep on blaming each other for the killings, that is all they talk about in the talk shows, instead of coming up with a solution to end it.

I don't think any of these people if they are found criminals will get any punishment . useless raids and detaining people. they usually walk out CLEAN from the court or run away from the jail with the help of their friends .
