Send killers lethal message

Policymakers and lawmakers must confront the dilemma facing the family. I am deeply troubled by the negative impact the dysfunctionality of the family is having on society, particularly its contribution to crime and violence. There is no denying, that such an institution has become broken at its base.

It's not enough to have a family; we must be part of a family that reciprocates respect throughout the society. We must be a part of a family that observes, obeys and respects the rule of law.

I am a survivor of crime and violence in 2016, in which my innocence was turned into guilt in the public sphere, my space was violated.

It is time to send the convicted murderers a message by giving them a lethal and fatal injection. They cannot take other people's lives and expect to have theirs. Let us fight the cancer of crime and violence before it destroys us all.
