Lawless underworld of the lagoons, seas and oceans. The fight for survival continues. Mostly the small fall prey to the bigger predators. It is not lawlessness, but the law of the seas: small eaten by the big. Shark attack!
Land is not sea. Humans have moved on from caves to huts, huts to cottages, cottages to houses. Welcome to the civilization. Welcome to the developed, civilized world. Welcome to the era of laws and regulations, enacted to harmonize the society and the way humans live.
Screams, gang-fights, rapes, drugs, robberies, blood, death, sirens, breaking news. Come night, come day, almost every day. Shark attack. On the streets of Malé the capital of Maldives. Lawlessness or the law of the capital cities? Research suggests that crimes in capital cities are often higher. Main reasons being that majority of crimes evolve around money and desperation. Capital cities have more money, denser-populations, and naturally more desperate people. And more sharks. The stage for the organised-crimes. The very moment that the law enforcers fail to enforce the ruel of law the problems surface and gets out of control. The Maldives is not an exception. Not anymore definitely!
Is it too late for the Maldives to return to innocence? It would be a tough but not an unachievable task. The government should have the will to restore peace and harmony. The government and authorities must commit to up hold the rule of law. The government and the authorities must be ready to attack the sharks. The society must be convinced that actions good or bad have consequences. The people must believe in justice. This may require making new laws or amending existing laws, but foremost it requires that authorities uphold the rule of existing laws.
God created sharks for the seas, where lawlessness is the law. Let's stop shark attacks on land. Lets not compromise human rights for criminals' rights. Lets join hands with the authorities to fight crime.
