This act of the officer is unprofessional no matter which agency or security service he works for. However, no matter the crime of the young man. The officer does not have the moral right to treat him like that. If an officer has enough evidence and grounds to believe that, the young guy has broken the law, he is supposed to arrest him and take the offender to the police station.

Also, it looks as though the Ghana is vertually lawless just as the citizenry has become lawless. In a related story, another video is also circulating on social media. In this second video, a military officer is seen at an interchange in Kumasi lashing a civilian for breaking traffic regulations. This in itself is lawlessness and an abuse of the right of the two victims by the overzealous police and military officer.

If our officers and law enforcing men and women are treating us this way, then we are not safe in this country. We have to be disciplined as citizens and so must the officers of the law. They cannot commit such crimes and engage in barbaric acts like this and go scot free. The full arm of the law must act and catch up with them so that justice is brought to the victims.

The officers kick is only seen from a striker in the 18-yard box or from a defender desperate to clear a goal-threatening ball. How can this be called policing? Our security officers must be professional so that, law enforcement institutions do not lose respect in the eyes of the public.
