    Before “charging” these criminals to charging. Aren’t police supposed to carry out forensic investigation as to whose skull is this? Who was killed? Family of who was killed? And then aren’t these folks supposed to be charged for murder or homicide? Our policing is very awful and ordinary citizens should be very concerned.
