Take some time to reflect on the arch incompetency of the police force. They are increasingly becoming more and more arrogant as the already flaky police becomes more and more uncontrollable.
There is red tape everywhere. The OICs create their own rules and even more red tape to add to the already disgraceful state of affairs. I recently went into lodge a complaint and had to visit 2 different police stations on three separate occasions with no result. The law is the backbone of a nation. The citizens depend on it. Unfortunately the law in Sri Lanka is a premium product. Available only to those with the money/power/ influence to get it.
Officer’s have next to no respect for ordinary citizens. Instead of seeing themselves as servants of the community, they see themselves as its overlords. Their very perceptions of why they exist is all wrong. The police is drunk with power, like all Sri Lankans seem to get when a bit of it is sent their way. They should all watch Spider-Man and learn something about responsibility.
This is in addition to the wasters at the petroleum corporation and other organizations striking for wage hikes. Everyone knows they don’t do a stick of work. Most of our tax money is going into maintaining incompetence and wastage. They are the branches of the problem demanding more leeway from the root; the government, the system, the people.
It’s because of the incompetency of the public servant (from the politician to the cop to the official at your DS, with the possible exception of your teacher) that the public is suffering. They (the public servants) are the intermediary that creates the conditions that is needed for the state and the public to function in harmony. They are the meat in between the slices of bread that is the country and it’s people which together makes the whole of Sri Lanka; the sandwich. Currently the sandwich is full of rotten and cancerous meat. Not a very healthy sandwich.
