POLICE – MEDIA – STUDENTS all in a game to con the gullible public
Nothing is as it seems! The public must be educated to see through the news!
The Police – They are an undisciplined lot who have had to reined in by the new Government, and accordingly have been under pressure to reform some of their egregious behavior. This was also highlighted during the ill fated crucifying of Kondaya in recent Seya Baby murder case. Another of their unacceptable behavior is their inability to handle crowds of protestors in a calm, non threatening way, as they believe that a show of force against defenseless people is an act of their machismo. Irrespective of what has transpired the Police have to grow up to reduce corruption, and be held accountable and therefore change the way they operate, and the public must demand a sea change in their demeanor towards the people they are sworn to protect.
The Media – They are the opportunists, always looking for an excuse to go overboard and show some shocking pictures and blow any event out of proportion, both for personal enhancement in having their photos published with the new medium of maximum impact being FB. Any photographer knows the angle of the photo says it all. It can either be meaningless or full of impact over and above the real incident. Let us not forget from behind the angle of a baton lofted can look attacking or merely lifted, depending on the point from which the photo is taken, giving a completely different picture to the viewer. With NO media censorship, instead of restraint, it seems that maximum impact, no matter what the facts seem to be the modus operandi of the reporter or photographer. The public therefore must look at a picture with skepticism.
The Students – They too love publicity. For them publicity is manna from heaven, and will do anything to get press attention, and they are past masters at using the media for their own ends. Worse, it is vital that the public understand that even the students are manipulated by the leaders for ulterior motives. It is the leaders and not the students, who are extremely politically motivated. The Students are merely cannon fodder to present a political statement, that bears no sense in reality. Taking the main demand of these students to ban private Education, that is the most absurd demand as 90% of Education is now in private hands. Even school education is in the hands of private tutors. The very real demand should be to demand that they get a quality education so they can obtain skilled jobs, but where are those basic demands in the student’s demonstrating arsenal or placards?
PUBLIC – THE THREE GROUPS ABOVE HAVE CONSPIRED TO COMPLETELY WHITEWASH THE TRUE GOALS OF DEVELOPING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE, BY ENGAGING IN NEEDLESS RHETORIC!
IN SHORT THEY ARE ALL TRAITORS OF MOTHER LANKA - AND IT IS TIME YOU THE READER REALIZED IT SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.
