This is very bad and must be condemned in all angles.
What if this man is not a thief but has been killed wrongly. Who then takes the blame?
What prevented the people who claimed the man was thief from taking him to the Hospital?
Is it that we no longer have trust for our police system?
Due to things like this many woman have lost their husbands and children turning fatherless.
