The man in the mirror.

Last week Anisa was driving along the Caroni Savanna Road with her husband and her two children.
An old white pick up van with two old Indian fellas were coming in the opposite direction when the vehicle suddenly swerved across to the the road and ran head on into them.
Both vehicles were a total right off.
Anisa and her husband were wearing seat belts and their children were in the back seat.
Dazed and in a state of shock they crawled out of their vehicle.
The occupants of the other vehicle were not so lucky.
Of course they weren't wearing seat belts. They both went head first through the wind shield.
Both of them were laying on the road with their faces a mess of bones and blood.
Other vehicles began pulling up on both sides of the road, their occupants spilling out and rushing to the scene.
Anisa breathed a sigh of relief. "Oh, thank God, help has come!"
Anisa was leaning over the bonnet of her car when the first man arrived. She reached out her arm to him.
He passed her straight, jumped into her car and began ripping out the stereo.
The next one opened the trunk and went off with the spare and the jack.
A lady came next. "Oh, you poor thing, that hand bag you're carrying must be really heavy, let me help you with that!"
People were stepping over the two men on the ground with their smashed faces to get what they wanted.
Anisa screamed. "Get out of my car! Get out of my car!"
Yeh, right! Like that could do anything.
She helplessly watched her car being torn to pieces as two men lay dieing on the ground.

The driver of the first car must have been the Prime Minister, The commissioner of Police the second, the Minister of National Security the third.
It had to be them. They are always to blame.
Or maybe a bunch of gangsters from The Ghetto heard the accident and came running.
Who were they? Your family? Your neighbors?
Yes, yes, yes. It's all of them. All of them.
It's everybody............ Everybody except you!
Take a look in the mirror.
