first before I continue, a wise woman called Hannah Arendt once said No punishment has ever possessed enough power of deterrence to prevent the commission of crimes. On the contrary, whatever the punishment, once a specific crime has appeared for the first time, its reappearance is more likely than its initial emergence could ever have been..
1. It will give room for social vices : To the best of my knowledge, 70% of those campaigning against SARS are criminals and yahoo boys. Over the years, SARS have been doing an excellent job in curbing societal vices and crimes. Just last week, they succeeded in arresting 3 notorious 419ers in my hood via an invaluable intel. Thanks to SARS, those fraudsters will cease to carry out their devilish acts no more
2. Many stories about SARS are all lies: I wonder what some people derive in tarnishing the name of the Special Anti Robbery squad. Mnay people have been faking horrible stories about SARS just to be relevant. The government should look into this and fish out the culprits.
3. Many will be un-employed: These are people who are risking their lives just to earn a living and make sure Nigerians are safe. Why should they be discarded like that without proper plan for their future.
4. That they look rough and mean is very misleading: Well some of them might carry dreads and smoke weed but its very necessary. That mean look of theirs is to strike fear in the hearts of criminals and prostitutes. The weed smoking is also necessary to ginger them and keep them awake for a long night. Ever wonder why people don’t fear the police with their skin head and clean shave?
5. More security outfits are needed to put crime to a minimum: Simply put , abolishing SARS will weaken our already failing paramilitary. In fact, more outfits like SARS needs to be introduced.
SARS is here to stay and if you don’t want to be harassed, dress like a mentally stable individual and not like a gangster. I will you carry dread and earrings and expect not to be questioned
