(Referring to the chief) Sent over 1000 police to catch how many people? Are those who were caught the ones who have no powerful officials to back them up?” Most people agree the numbers don’t add up, “…arrested 98 suspects… 31 people were involved in pornographic and prostitution, 37 people in gambling and 19 people were arrested for drugs.” “Adding a zero at the end is not even enough”.
