  1. Police investigating itself, its own crime is like a Predator investigating its prey/meal. There is no government in Ethiopia but gang of Criminals holding power.

    In todays Ethiopia Police does not Protects life and property through the enforcement of laws & regulations.
    Police responds to Abiy Ahmed Orommuma greedy and unfair agenda. Police is a tool of repression to the Orommuma, Oromo controlled Police and government.

    Police targets Amharas, arrests, abducts sues and argued its case in court against Innocent journalist, the well Respected and known 80 Year Old Historian/Journalist Mr. Tadios Tantu, Political activist and other Amharas suspected for not supporting the Orommuma Oromo greedy and ruthless government agenda.

    In every single Amhara death there is Abiy Ahmed’s and the Orommuma Oromo blood washed hands in it.
    Abiy Ahmed Orommua are notorious to never catch murderers, criminals of Genocide against almost 1 million Amharas.
    It is notorious to harass, imprison and abuse innocent Amharas.
