Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Mob Justice

The police station was one of those police stations that was nothing short of f a corrupt hurb or zone. A lot of things were happening, there was increased robbery, theft, thuggery but surprisingly if any person would get arrested , before they even got any far or even in the station , someone would bribe the policemen who would then let the arrested person go scout free even if what he did was as seriouse as murder. This went on until at time when now wanainchi took the law by their hands and started to punish those who were found to be have broken the law. Whenever someone was arrested by them, they would beat up the person so badly and sometimes the person would bleed to death. Others would be burned up to death and others would be slashed to pieces with machettes and even others were stoned to death. problem had now loomed in the entire town due to reluctance of the police. Though it helped reduce the increased criminal activities , it was a bad idea that led to lose of many innocent lives
