  1. Only an idle governor will be prowling the streets daily looking for offenders of curfew violation. Wike is sliding towards executive recklessness reminiscent of the military era. Beheading a man does not equate cure for his lunacy. There are a couple of options allowed under civilized democracy to deal with issues that you’re exerting jungle justice.
