    DISGUST AND OUTRAGE IS WHAT I FEEL ABOUT THE ACTIONS OF THESE OFFICERS. CLEARLY THEY ASSUMED SHE HAD DELIBERATELY “THROWN” THE FLOWER POT AT THEM. FOR ARGUEMENTS SAKE, LET’S ASSUME SHE DID. FOR EVEN IF THAT WERE THE CASE, WOULD IT WARRANT BEING “ATTACKED BY MALES” ARMED WITH WEAPONS AS YOU STOOD IN A POSITION OF “SUBMISSION” WITH YOUR HANDS UP IN THE AIR? WERE THEY “JUST” EVEN AFTER THEY WERE ADVISED “SHE’S A FEMALE” IN PROCEEDING TO “BASH HER OVER THE HEAD” WITH HER OWN LAMP? WHAT “PENAL CODE” DID THEY FOLLOW WHEN THEY “THREW HER DOWN A FLIGHT OF STAIRS”? AND ADDING “INSULT TO INJURY” CHARGED NOT ONLY HER BUT HER GRANDMOTHER WITH “ASSAULT”. I BLAME NO ONE BUT “THEIR AGENCY” FOR THOSE ACTIONS! FOR THE BLATANCY OF THOSE ACTIONS AND THE “IGNORING” OF THOSE ACTIONS CAN ONLY BE ATTRIBUTED TO THE “CONDONEMENT” OF THOSE ACTIONS, BY THOSE FOR WHOM THEY WORK! WHO INDEED “HIRE” “PROMOTE” AND “COMMEND” FOR SUCH ACTIONS AND COME TO THE DEFENCE OF THESE OFFICERS BY “JUSTIFYING” SUCH ACTIONS, WHEN EVER THE MATTER IS BROUGHT TO THEIR ATTENTION. SO INDEED, HOW ARE THEY NOT “THE AUTHOR” OF THOSE ACTIONS COMMITTED BY THEIR OFFICERS?
