  1. What nonsense! You kill someone’s child and you have the guts to issue statement. Putting your drunk sergeant in prison doesnt bring the man back to life! this stupid police people should at least go to school and be enlightened like the top ranking navy officials or whoever! its so annoying. Dont allow thunder to visit you and and that ur mumu statement.

  2. Maybe you should go and check the dictionary for the meaning of “discipline”. A disciplined organisation doesn’t give a drunk officer a gun. You people have killed an innocent civilian and you have the guts to issue such a stupid statement my foot
