When criminals target police they mercilessly spread fear to reinforce their untouchability in the eyes of the public.

And so they begin their relentless rein of terror and stranglehold on fearful neighbourhoods.

The tide can only be turned when the long arm of the law prevails to reassert its authority.

So the sentencing to life of Kwenzakwenduna Khonzuyise Khathi, who showed a brazen disregard for life when he gunned down traffic police officer Zolisile Luvalo last year, offers much hope for the current anti- crime crusade sweeping the country.

So too the fact that the criminal proceedings were conducted successfully and speedily.
