    Mar 22 2013: People have learned to use violence as a solution.
    Focusing on the police force is like addressing the problem after it has arisen.
    The focus must not be on traditional policing methods for they can never solve the problem.
    The police force cannot extinguish the fire burning in peoples hearts.
    The security forces are trying to extinguish a forest fire with a child's water pistol.
    In order to unlearn this perception great patience is needed. There is no immediate solution available.
    All I can offer is for you to have patience and peace of mind by understanding that a small step today is a great achievement and that many small steps together will change things for the better, but perhaps not in our lifetimes.
