The raids of the anti- crime unit broadcast over National television should be a subject of close study by the Ministry of the Interior.

One must question whether the security personnel and those they sought to arrest are actually protected from the spread of the virus.

The criminologist at the Ministry of Interior should review what type of law enforcement approaches and mechanisms are essential at a time when detaining persons and taking them to court may not be the best way of preventing the virus from spreading. Shouldn’t the state involve more social workers and provide social relief to those who have no other means of survival but stay in the Ghettos so that they could be housed, fed and tested for COVID 19 for the period of the emergency to reduce crime and encourage social rehabilitation of those who are excluded from the mainstream of society?

A new approach to fighting crime is necessary to respond to COVID 19.
