I hope those drivers will be prosecuted.
We're having too many military officers going against the law in their uniforms believing no one can do anything to them.
This is how they go about inflicting serious injuries on people in the name of punishment.
Let them also find out if those men are really military officers because some civilians use the military uniforms to perpetrate heinous crimes and even go Scott free.
**I love being me.**
