Drunk driver accused of killing a pedestrian…
Inebriated youth held for molesting a woman…
Student stabbed to death after drunken fight…
Same night, three different cases.
Police acted promptly and the culprits are behind the bars. However the real culprit is still free. That bottle of liquor is still out there to ruin many more lives.

Good point. However, in my view we shd not blame inanimate objects for human failings. If not bottle, they will find other excuses for being inhuman.
Yes but we can’t deny the role of liquor in increasing crime rates.
So true and sad, what all people do under it’s influence..
Almost 70% crimes are committed under the influence of alcohol. Yet the government is not doing anything about it.
Very true… ?
Very well written – such a huge message with a few words.
Painful incidents happening often, your interest to share this valuable message has to be appreciated
I would say the culprit is society itself for not having better programs for mentally disturbed or addicted people. Where there is a will, there is a way to do something or nothing. Alcohol in and of itself is really the innocent one because it is simply an object that can be abused and at the time blamed by those who have the ability to say no or change their ways.
In my country, crime is on the rise especially rapes and molestation cases. Even young children are becoming victims of these heinous crimes. In most cases, the accused were drunk. Alcohol makes one lose the sense of right and wrong.
It sounds like deep societal problems need to be addressed with grass roots effort to reform or create laws or programs for those abusing alcohol.
You are right. Strict laws as well as deaddiction programs are needed to curb the menace.
