Just a few days ago a video popped up where suspected thief was spotted being forced to laugh and dance against his will in Takoradi which caused stir on social media, another equally hilarious video has emerged
In a latest video, the rigorous suspected thief who allegedly stole another person's bunch of plantain and car parts was arrested and marched in public.
It's was believed that he had been reportedly lurking around the neighbourhood for days and the residents too took note of his movements.
They first gave him a funny shave of his hair by drawing a cross in it which divided it into four portions. They tied a long rope onto his waist which was used in pulling him during the course of the parading, to ensure he did not escape
He was made to do one-man communal labour to clean the gutters of the township by desilting them to the extent that the wastewater in the drains looked clean as pure water.
In the presence of all residents, the alleged thief was given a bottle of beer to drink after doing the cleaning.
They then made him to sing “I won’t steal again” to which he danced adversely to the enjoyment of the residents.
They claimed that this new approach of public shaming is more a disincentive than handing over the suspects to the police because nothing will by done and they will be granted bail so they come back to continue their criminal activities.
What is your thought on this new method?
