Police should find such criminals instantly to make our country peaceful otherwise these lethal people will increase and can damage us more. I you should click free online topics to get conversational topics for your assignment. We should also encourage country’s police and should back them to kill and arrest enemies of general citizens.


All I want to know is who killed him is all.
