    I’m sick and tired of reading these kind of news, just because of the system the government have in place, like we’re hiding the criminals from the public knowing them, we want to know them we want to expose them and we want to prosecute them and help put them away for a long time, please change the law so that the police can do their job and the news media can print the photos of the individual!!!
