    And we say we a capable to police ourselves,but such an incident and many others in recent past of PNGs history; I am sorry to say but we do not know when to draw the line between job and doing other things in the line of duty..in this case upholding law and order..how idiotic can we become not only to ourselves but to the outside world also.
