    Bail should be given only on rare cases and that too with heavy security deposits so that getting bail should be very difficult

    All criminals caught have a long history of crimes
    registered in this and that Police Stations, be them
    locals from Mangalore or Udupi Districts or from
    Kerala or Tamil Nadu or Maharashtra or Gujarat and
    The criminals themselves are out here and every
    where committing more crimes - so what is the use of
    the law, and the hard work of police detectives, and all
    the cases registered against them?

    Hard core criminals must be not be tried and justified
    by court hearings etc.. It's simply a waste of time and
    states' resources. They must be rendered hard core
    sentences such as life imprisonment or death in a week's
    time after their crime - ONLY THEN THERE WILL BE LESS
