Faulty traffic lights

06:30, Mar 27 2016
Sunday Morning of March 27th 2016 at about 6.20am.
The traffic lights in front of the fire service were faulty.. The lights went from red straight to green and I was caught midway. The Amber lights didn't show or blink as usual.. The police guard stationed at the Police HQ entrance, stopped me.. I explained, he said 'I know but its Sunday morning'.. I say ' But I am going to church'.. He said 'it doesn't matter'... There and then I showed that I didn't have anything except my church offering.. He took the cash I had on me Ghc50 note and bade me off... I was so disappointed and also disoriented throughout that day.. The lights were faulty but the guy won't let me go until he took all I had with me. I wasn't about to argue with a gun wielding uniformed thief!!!!
