Police too slow in response

Dear Editor

Re: Mother questions duties of Police

It’s an ongoing problem with the police. I myself called the police for a fight that was going on the seawall in front of the EFKS church in Apia but they only showed up 20 minutes later and started to ask questions.

One of the fighters was seriously injured from a beer bottle and was lucky to survive. I had been calling them  a lot of times for the same reasons as Paese’s and ended up with the same result but if we take the matter in our own hands, then they want to take us to jail. Police should know that we are all human, they themselves do not want people to swear while your kids, parents, sisters or your family are listening so what makes them think that other people do?
