  1. Surprise surprise! Really thought this initiative was intended to educate the public and not the police. Very very suspicious with the timing of this article in the context of several issues the PWA has been addressing. No doubt, this is intended to scare the president of the PWA and his members from continuing to deal in a Very formidable issues involving the police high command and government. It appears definitely we are heading for a showdown.
    Whoever publicized this, I say to you, this law is nothing but BSSSSS!!!!!!!!! You are therefore a big bullshitter.
    Are you literate? Need not say more. Just read again the meaning of disaffection and its synonyms. This law smells unconstitutionality (Disaffection means a state or feeling of being dissatisfied with the people in authority and no longer willing to support them. synonyms: dissatisfaction, disgruntlement, discontent, restlessness, frustration); - Go fix the issues rather than trying to intimidate police officers. You are miscalculating in a very big way. This citizen is a member of the RSLPf and currently has a strong feeling of dissatisfaction with the people in authority and no longer willing to support the CRAP going on for leadership in the RSLPF. Am I committing an offence?
