The police investigation began when management from one of the Circle K minimarkets that is located on Jalan Gatot Subroto Timur was broken into on Thursday during the early morning (8/7). After collecting information from the scene, both suspects were arrested on the same day from Jalan Pulau Saelus, Denpasar along with evidence such as 29 packages of cigarettes, 3 bottles of perfume, a crowbar and a motorbike.

During their operation, the suspect came to the scene with a motorbike and used the crowbar to break the door of the minimarket before finally leaving with some stolen goods. During the interrogation, the suspects admitted that the operation was initiated by Dimas. “Both of them have been detained and would potentially face 7 years of imprisonment to be held responsible for what they have done.” Kombes Pol Jansen concluded.

Sad to see the breakdown of Balinese society. People are starving because of the flawed policy of the local government and ultimately the central government. The policy being implemented has failure written all over and because of the lack of knowledge it will only get worse for the Indonesian people. Right now Asia is having a very flawed policy. Singapore has seen the writing on the wall and has begun to focus on outcome. Instead of focusing on infections, Singapore has begun to focus on sick people showing at the hospital and people dying because according to the numbers only a few people will die from covid. Scientist in every country know the people who will more likely show severe symptoms and those conditions have been made public by the various public health institutions in countries worldwide.why punish the entire population? Stupidity has killed more people worldwide than any disease.

It’s to be hopped that they don’t be life long disabled. - It would be much more humane if police would have also a option to use pepper spray or taser’s.
