Do you think the police would prevent more murders if they were quicker to respond to distress calls?

Yes! They are too lazy and not taking complaints seriously!

- @MSNEQUES

It's difficult at times for them to respond because the Government has not equipped them with sufficient resources to do so.

- @crazy_zinga

Yes, murders could be prevented but sometimes they work at their own pace, neglecting their roles in society.

- @rebelsamie

Police don't prevent crimes, they investigate crimes. Only people can prevent crimes or murders.

- djsirvivor

They would definitely prevent more murders if they responded quickly to distress calls.

- @djfreshremixes

I think the police are too corrupt, they spend more time on corruption than trying to help people.

- @Ia1523Michael

Yes! They need to know how to react to these responses better and stop treating the distress calls as pranks or just paranoid people.

- NiKi_NeiTes

Yes, murders and other crimes as well. The response time of the JCF is disgustingly slow, IF they even show up.

- @lisseer

It is disgraceful, all this running around they have people desperately in need of help doing! Some murders can be prevented!
