  1. What is his mission, why carrying gun, he need to be beaten seriously so he can speak out. Wonders shall never end

  2. In my country this man will still be working free. In fact my president will come out and tell u that he don’t know the kind of camera used to document the picture.

  3. Does he have license to hold weapon…… He should be charged with that if he doesn’t have the license……. Then u charge him for holding weapon without license

  4. He should tortured so as for him to reveals his mission what is he doing with a gun no place is save human being anymore
