  2. An rightly so the relatives should be arrested,

    The family sought out the Police’s assistance by reporting the crime, then storm and threaten the same people you sought help from,

    The jealous ex-husband was in jail and would have had a trial quickly and sent to prison.

    He is in hospital and the vengeful family members will also be sent to prison because they believed they were above the law,

    Good they should be,
    Mob justice should only happen if the police and the courts due nothing,

    Let the police and courts do their jobs or fire them all if you do not wish ir allow them to do their jobs
