about a month ago or even more, my brother hamza was walking with his friend just after maghreb when a car parked in front of them and two men jumped out and held them at gun point.

they demanded their mobiles and wallets which both the boys gave and then both men took it upon themselves to beat the living day lights out of hamza's friend for no reason, the kid complied with their demands yet they gave him a beating he will never forget!!!!

they then turned to Hamza and hit him with the butt of the gun just behind his ear which made the poor kid collapse onto the floor.

they run back into the car and sped of into the night...

my brother came home and told my parents about this, they where obviously upset about this and he was sligtly shaken by the ordeal.

i was quite surprised that he didnt fight back, my brother hamza hates in-justices and hes the type of guy that will get involved in a fight if he thinks an injustice is being served or will help some one in the street if there being attacked, bullied etc... so lets just say his knuckles are hard...

when i asked him why he didnt fight back, he replied that it wasnt worth risking it as they had a gun. i was happy that he had the mind to realise the seriousness of such a situation.

Hamza contacted the police, and you would think that the fact that a gun was involved would make it a matter of urgency, as of yet they havent even come for a statment, they wrote to him though, a letter that is sent out automaticlly by a computer most probably, informing Hamza that his refernce number is BLAH BLAH BLAH...

its been over a month and the situation could have ended with a life being taken, so why are they taking so long...

kinda dashes any hope for law enforcement...

hamza is actually studying to become a police officer and as of yet he hasnt changed his mind, i guess he wants to get into the establishment so as to change it...

i guess the police are better at shooting civillians....

SubhanAllah....that is scary WA. Alhamdulillah for the fact it didnt end in the worst manner.

My family has had similar experiences with the police....it kinda makes you lose hope at times.

So.....it has been a long while! hope life is treating you well inshaAllah sis
