Police, a constituted body that is empowered to protect public, property and limit civil disorder. A body that is the guardian of the society in layman words, a body that is responsible for the protection of each and every resident of their respective states, someone who can control the crime, someone who actually have criminals and people who provoke illegal activities in control. Do you think it would happen if there will be no ounce of fear of police in people?
No, it won’t. It seems that people in our country have taken Police and their authority way too granted. Forget about the fear of Police, there are people who are so power intoxicated that they actually manage to scare police officers. As hard as it may be to believe it, this incident will actually bound you to believe so.
