  1. I am inclined to believe that you are not referring to this day light robbery with violence as petty crime which, as youmentioned, “must. be eradicated from our streets and offices”.
    Robbery with violence is a serious crime which has increased astronomically over the past month and there seems to be no strategy to arrest this situation.
    I am not going to suggest that something must be done. When in opposition, Granger boasted that he knew exactly what needed to be done and as a former military man surrounded by others who were in uniform, must put into place with immediate effect, all the plans he boasted about in order to arrest the heinous crimes perpetrated against innocent civilians day after day .

  2. Robbery In Broad Daylight?

    And pensioners are the MOST vulnerable.

    Most are too feeble or frail to represent themselves physically, in any altercation with bandits.

    Petty Crime MUST be eradicated from our streets and offices, by any means necessary.
