If you have plans to visit Bangladesh in the near future, don't. The police there have been given carte clinche to shoot to kill whomever they believe to dangerous wihtout fear of reprisals. This small, impoverished country has had it's fair share of problems. Famine ravaged it's population in the sixties, giving rise to one of the longest live albums ever produced by a former Beatle. Now, political party-biased gangs have caused much trouble, what with killing cops in shootouts and all. Although this is a serious issue that needs to be addressed, issuing a order like this to your local police force will do little to ramp up any tourist trade you might think you can milk out of your country.
