A mature state must be able to distinguish criminal actions of individuals and conflicts that may lead to destruction of properties. Conflicts always provide a shield for some to carry out actions that under ordinary circumstances could not be done. Hence the real solution to conflict is to prevent its recurrence.

The minister of the interior and the minister of justice should examine the cause of the conflict which escalated into violent confrontation between the youth and the security forces with tear gas canisters moving helter-skelter while the youth attacked police stations. Taking a few people to court for reasons associated with civil disobedience of such monumental proportion does not appear to be in line with the best interest of the country. The state should draw the right lessons, allow bygones to be bygones and work on preventing recurrence.
