  1. The suspect hide in the cemetery. Unless someone is caught in the act and poses a physical threat we cannot assume guilt and worse yet impose punishment. To do so is uncivil and illegal. History is replete with cases of the innocent being found guilty and on occasion even condemned to the gallows, mob or extra judicial justice is even more unreliable and can also be applied maliciously. We therefore have to suppress our emotions and abhorrence and allow justice to take its legislated course.

  2. Ref. The Criminal Hid In The Cemetery?

    If this criminal chose to hide in the cemetery.

    Then the Police should have ensured that he STAYED therein too.

    Why waste Tax Payers Time, and Money on Burial Expenses?
