  2. WHERE IS THE POLICE PR PERSON WHO CANNOT SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH, BY THE WAY? WHERE IS THE POLICE COMMISSIONER AND WHY DOES HE HAVE TO TAKE ALL THAT VACATION LEAVE? WHY DOES LA CORBINEARANDFAR HAVE SO MUCH CONCERN ABOUT WHETHER THE POLICE COMMISSIONER IS WELL RESTED OR NOT, TO THE POINT WHERE HE NEEDS TO CONSTANTLY SEND HIM ON VACATION! I THINK LA CORBINEARANDFAR NEEDS A VACATION HIMSELF! BY THE WAY! LA CORBINEARANDFAR IS A MINISTER, BUT HAS NEVER BEEN ELECTED...HE SEEMS TO ALWAYS GET A MINISTERIAL POSTING...WHY IS IT THAT THIS MAN WITHOUT ANY MERIT, KEEP GETTING POSITIONS? HE IS NOT PARTICULARLY TALENTED, AND DOES NOTHING TO ADD ANY VOTES TO THE LAYBAH PARTY, BUT KEEPS GETTING POSITIONS? WHAT EXACTLY IS RICHARD PHILIP LACORBINEAR AND FAR SO GOOD AT? HE IS NO LONGER OF SERVICE TO THE US EMBASSY FOR PORTAYING PAWAL....

  3. if that individual was or did perform a robbery, a cop, wearther on duty or not, have every right to immobilize him tu face the law. if he resist arrest by running away.. the cop did his job by killing him or still arresting him.

  4. saw him run but didn't know if he died but figure they would arrest him if he went to the hospital so he would stay away
