Cruelty of our people inflicting on our people is unbelievable

Target killing by militants spreading panic at all levels is a heinous crime but we also feel utter uneasiness by the spate of crossfire killing branding them the accused in the name of encounters with the police.
Media reports on Saturday made the disclosure that the arrested attacker of Madaripur College teacher has been killed in police encounter in a jute plantation field on the very first day of his 10-day remand. He fell before he could make full disclosure about the attempt to kill. But what is surprising is that the police could not even injure those who attacked the police.
DB police killed another prime accused in blogger Avijit killing in the city on Sunday.
Meanwhile a total of 16 people were killed in a spate of crossfire throughout the country over the last 12 days from June 9. It appears that killing by militants and counter killing by police in crossfire have reached a new height when state protection to people is rendering useless.  
The government is not for creating bad examples like killing people without trial or arresting innocent young men in thousands. The law enforcers must not be law breakers. A college student was killed when he was granted remand by the court to be in police custody. It is a question to be answered how the court allowed the prayer for police remand when the Supreme Court gave directives not to grant remand first time.
We have denounced crossfire on so many occasions through our editorials demanding it must stop because such killing people without proper trial is a direct infringement of the constitutional right to life and fair trial. Most importantly such killings encourage others to take law into their own hands.
Power of guns can't replace the rule of law. It is rendering the nation utterly helpless like the militants' cruelty.
Not only the police power is grossly abused being under political pressure, there is abuse of power everywhere by many others. The public wealth is plundered in the name of politics. In public life corruption is going unchecked. It is not safe to keep money in the banks.
What is most painful is that even the justice system is not too careful to help the victims of police abuse. The politicised police has difficulty to be fully trustworthy. In short, the police are not free to be truthful.  
We find it unbelievable that our own people inflicting so much cruelty and injustice on our own people.
