It's about time! May God help you with your difficult work. Everyone is good at railing against the police, but nobody can get along without them. Any unrest and they go running for the police. So take care of them!!! Respect them! They need to be given more rights, so that they don't have to act cautiously and wonder whether some scoundrels will accuse them of excessive force... Sometimes they are more disempowered than any person causing trouble. Police should be given the opportunity to carry out their duties without any misgivings. They risk their lives and die. Society needs to know that. Of course, they are human beings, and all sorts of things happen there, but that's not a pattern. Enhance the prestige of the police and everyone benefits. I would like to wish every police officer good luck in work, peace, and prosperity.
