“The trust in the police (…) has been highest in the 22 years we have measured since 1998 – when the police were very negative. At present, only firefighters and rescuers are above, “Vilmorus chief Vladas Gaidys told BNS.

“Two moments: one was mobilization that something was quickly mobilized and the other thing was that there was nothing there, well, somehow it went out (the police – BNS) out of that situation, they didn't give those kids any mockery, a rather stupid situation, ”commented V.Gaidys.
