  1. I remember, the head of the Police saying that they are ready to "clean" the underworld, regardless of who they are and what's their political connection is. Seems, the Police is ready to do just more than that. Yeah, it is easy, just link them to the underworld, go with the famous line, " tried to escape while taking to show hidden arms",and do the deed... Clean-Sweep.
