The Indian Police, similar to police departments the world over, are just employees for the worst employers, and we’re their customers, but in this case, the customer is never right.

Lets us not forget that law and order are necessary, however, in the words of the late Dr Martin Luther King : ” A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God ”

We are born with an innate sense of morality, of what is wrong and what is right, if we all play our part, then it’s only a matter of time before the entire system becomes obsolete.
