street crime

while this is getting absolutely ridiculous, it is well, heartening to know that our american equivalent (if we could call it that), new york city, is actually worse off – something our local police officers are quick to jump on to whenever they defend the law and order situation. what they fail to mention is that the crime statistics of their favourite example, one of the world’s most dangerous cities, is actually going down.

but thats besides the point. the street crime scene is spiralling totally out of control. i should know, i’ve been mugged thrice over the past two years. the sindh police department really needs to wake up.

    one of the world’s most dangerous cities

    It might have been 15 years ago… hardly any more. Have you been to NYC lately?

    xil, i so sympathize wid you! over the last two years, i’ve had my car stolen two times!!

    but on another note… n im glad you brought this up… the police recovered it both times… so i guess im pretty well off all things considered..

    a frnd of mine had his mobile stolen twice in three months though :(

    what happened to the proposed plan by the cell phone service providers to block the imei number of the stolen cell phones rendering them useless in pakistan. that should solve this problem.

    I agree with Faisal on it.

    BTW why Cell Phone Companies are so reluctant to enforce this law? Is there only one provider so lack of competition making it profitable for them to buy stolen phones and resell it to new customers.

    Assalaamualaekum,

    sub milay hoey hain. the police, the snatcher, the dukandar, the army general, everyone is involved and everyone is making money.

    I have said it so many time. Unless and until we have laws that are strictly implemented, nothing will happen. People need to get ibrat from these punishments.

    On the other note, if laws are strictly implemented, are we ready to abide by the law? What if our brother is found guilty of bribing a traffic police constable? Are we willing to put him in jail? Think about it.

    JazakAllah Khair,

    Assalaamualaekum

    Well on: What if our brother is found guilty of bribing a traffic police constable? Are we willing to put him in jail? Think about it.

    I would say kay if there be the law that strict there is no chance a brother would bribe a white cop. You know that’s a chain a whole circle each points connected to each other. lets say if a person i found guilty of bribing the cop. if a cop accepts it thats complete curruption, if he is bribbed but he does not accept rather complains or take action accordingly, that’s half of the law. ofcourse in this situation no one will agree in letting the brother face the charges. BUT once he is charged and faces the charges, the next time he and everyone knowing that will think twice before bribing a cop. and that’s full law

    We should think over it. All we think is yaar “jugaar hai bay masla nahin koi!! tully ki aisay ki taisi” think over it.

    after we settle the issues of big terrorists, we will ask govt not to stop anti-terrorist courts.
    mobile and motos snatchers shall be trialed there, as these things are used for terrorist activities.
