Azrael's Words on the police force in Sri Lanka. “I have several issues with the Police, the most significant being that they are not as well trained as the armed forces and I think it is this lack of training that spills over when they handle civilians.

    History teaches us one lesson. There has never been a tyranny in any nation without the cooperation of the police and military. Those who are commissioned to protect us are also to be closely watched. They can be our greatest enemies, as well as our friends.
