The fatal shooting of a security guard while on duty here on Tuesday has sparked an outpouring of sadness and outrage over what many describe as a senseless act.

Among those speaking out against the brutal killing is a social activist John Daniel who has called for the incident to be dealt with swiftly and decisively.

Daniel maintains that the cause of the rapidly decaying social fabric is the lack of respect for authority. He points to society’s spiritual roots where authority was established and man’s conscious decision to defy and challenge it.

Daniel also observes that rebellion and crime are now glorified by the nation’s youth. He adds that it is evident in the music and entertainment that they gravitate to.

Daniel opines that while it is important for every defendant to have a fair trial, it is possible to overprotect the criminal at the expense of his victim if fair and impartial justice is not meted out promptly.
