Most poor fear the abuse of the law and those administrators of it who use their authority for their own good. Heck I fear the law in most African Countries.
"But perhaps even more surprising than the failure to prioritize the problem of violence against the poor is the way that those who do appreciate the problem ignore the most basic solution—and the solution they rely upon most in their own communities: law enforcement. As we shall see together, the poor in the developing world endure such extraordinary levels of violence because they live in a state of de facto lawlessness. That is to say, basic law enforcement systems in the developing world are so broken that global studies now conﬁrm that most poor people live outside the protection of law."
