Empowering Police?

I am actually scared about empowering police in India, without some preparatory work. I will not be surprised if police uses its new powers to pick up people randomly and demand ransom for release. Not that it cannot do it now; but some fear of judiciary and public act as deterrents. Police should be empowered, but only after the recruitment processes are streamlined; training systems are overhauled; and salaries are hiked.

PS:

1. Police is no match for a terrorist, because, as has been pointed out by many, a terrorist has to be right only once; police has to be right every time.

2. The kind and methods of brain-washing of people who convert to terrorism are so thorough that it will be difficult to get the same passion & energy into Police.
