Initially, I was skeptical of AAP but still hopeful. I thought it was a sign of changing times. I assumed that AAP would make a positive impact in creating some corruption free politics.
However, now I am beyond convinced that AAP is a band of high handed, big talking fools. During their campaigning they blamed Sheila Dikshit's government for the gang rape/rape culture. Now that they are in power, they wash their hands off it and blame it on the police. The way they washed their hands of the Danish rape case is disgusting.
Even worse is their targeting of Africans in their so called raids. They make Sheriff Arapaio look like an angel. Yes, I understand that many drug and prostitution rings are run by Nigerians. But that doesn't mean that all Africans or Nigerians are criminals or drug dealers. To conduct such racially targeted raids, humiliate innocent civilians in the process - including women forced to pee in public for a drug test that came negative - these are all acts that are shameful.
I understand you want to serve the people and bust crime. But law and order exists for a reason. There is a reason you need probable cause and a warrant. There is a reason you have to follow due process. Just because you are AAP doesn't mean you ignore the law and racially target an entire community. Imagine how we would feel if US officials started raiding all and only Indian peoples homes without warrants because the stats show Indians have the highest count of illegal immigrants. I'm sorry, no matter how clean and uncorrupt you are - a racist pig is a racist pig and a shame to the nation.
