Yesterday I read that the Fneish assassin got arrested thanks to this government [an absurdity] then, the bank robber got arrested thanks to the Hariri clan that controls Sidon. How Immature is such a conclusion,,, isn't it moowaten?

Apparently the man can not afford a better weapon and a motorcycle, so catching him was easier. Lucky for the authorities he was not trained by the pros.

you people are stupid, because u still can't admit that in a population there are people who are suffering from mental illness and these people can commit a crime without being conscious of it , and you also do not know that the Lebanese Army is the only institution that cannot be manipulated by politics and does whatever it needs to do.
I appreciate the fact that the Army investigates before accusing someone of felony but i hope someday the Army will have higher ties with N.G.O.'s that can help people with special needs and mental illness and that it could cooperate to send those people to specialized centers.
YOU PEOPLE SHOULD COMMENT LOGICALLY NOT THROW YOUR ANGER AT EVERYONE maybe smoke a joint it will help you relax go to amsterdam chill out and look at our country in a bright way.
