I voted for a government that would find a way to end the out-of-control, senseless violence in this country. And what do I get? A government that is hell-bent on joining the violence!
Here is their solution:
1. Minister of Works – start the hangings now!
2. Minister of National Security – I agree with hanging
3. Attorney General – is said to be looking into the resumption of hanging.
These pronouncements have brought forth a calling for blood by citizens up and down the the length and breath of the country. The violence is now on all sides, surrounding us, seeking to consume us!
As if that is not enough, the Minister of Justice who only recently returned from a near encounter with his Maker (should make him value life, eh?), has taken the blood-curdling chorus to a new crescendo: "Persons should be hanged in Woodford Square, 6 or 7am in the morning. The people should see the hangings take place, they need to feel the fear of God and have fear of the law."
A hysterical, barbaric response to the crime situation suggests that my government feels helpless in the face of the violence all around us and feel that their only resort is to fight violence with violence. Madam Prime Minister, is it your intention to allow the country to sink into a blood bath? Say something–do something.
