    This kind of victimization doesn’t bring confidence in the justice sytem,tell much about the unfair restrictions that strangle a person’s freedom to express ones dissatisfaction with the system. I am not happy with the endless extensions or put forward of court cases that goes on in our courts, that is very costly for any one to seek justice.
