Terrible situation of law and order

It is a shame that the law and order situation is so bad and is constantly getting worse.Even in this situation the military govt was asking if the killer had any religous association.Well people Don't you know that the law and order situation is so bad .No one is safe.But you military guys don't care because you are taught in Kakul that you are superior and to rule is your right.All the money is going to military and eventually coming back to USA while they buy expensive military hardware whcih could be bought cheaper elsewhere.So no money is left for education,law and order and health and other social porgrams.This military regime and the military psyche over all is responsible for this and other similiar acts of killings,thefts,etcetc.And they are busy keeping their masters(USA) happy.
